Starlights Bauble

Hello Crafters, do you have that Friday feeling?  It's party time :o)  I hope you're all looking forward to it.
I've had a bit of a busy week so today's card is quite simple.  I've used lots of familiar things so lets get started.

This was a 6" x 6" card matted with black, silver and then white card. 

Ingredients as follows:

Spellbinders Ornament
Hobby Art Winter Wishes Stamps (Reduced on the website)

I cut out one of the Baubles from one of my Spellbinders ornament dies and painted it with Starlights Silver, mixing it on a tile with a very small amount of water.  Left that one side to dry. 

I then cut out a Poinsettia Die and some Holly Sprays and again painted them in the same way.  I painted the little berries on the holly spray with a little of the red Starlights but decided they needed a little extra sparkle so topped them off with some Xmas Red Stickles.

Here are the components:



After matting all the card stock, I glued the holly spray in place leaving the end so I could tie a small piece of cotton through the bauble to look like it was hanging from the branch, then glued the bauble in place. 

The second Holly Spray was cut in half and glued either side of the bauble, then mounted the assembled Poinsettia in place and finished it off with an Iridescent gem.

I then stamped a Merry Christmas Sentiment and the card was done.............

 

As I said very quick and simple, but a little festive cheer.

See you soon, love Jan -x -
