I started off with a piece of Sheena stamping card and a couple of shades of green Brushos and gold Pixie powder. I sprinkled the powders over the card then sprayed with quite a lot of water and picked the piece up and moved it around till it looked how I wanted. It was very bright and very wet so I laid another piece of card on top, pressed down, which gave me two green and gold A4 pieces and I let them dry naturally. The gold really glimmers but I am not sure how well you will be able to see in the photo. I punched out loads of circles with a circle punch then die cut lots of red bows from Stamplorations die set Gift Builder #2 - it cuts like a dream! I drew the 'string' with a sparkly gold pen then glued the circle and die cut ribbon to the card base. I am not sure what size the card base is, I have had them for ages! I got them from QVC years ago and haven't used then - I still have lots! They are smaller than DL. I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment, I can't remember the set it came from. I didn't add anything extra to embellish as I needed these to be as quick and clean and simple as they could be. I love how they turned out though! I did over twenty in this colourway and four in purple and silver but I haven't taken a photo of one of those yet.
