ATCAS Baubles

The codeword for challenge #2 on the Addicted to CAS blog is 'Bauble'.  For my entry this week I decided to use my set of Stampin'Up! Sizzix Holiday Ornaments Framelits which I bought last month.  Rather than use the dies with the matching stamps I thought I'd use them to cut bauble shapes from some lovely SU! christmas papers.

After cutting the bauble shapes from patterned paper, I used the just the top of the dies with gold mirror card to create a cap for each of them.  By using the same dies the cap fits exactly on the top of each bauble. 

On a 5 x 5 base card I doodled some curly 'strings' with a red Spica Glitter Pen before attaching the bauble shapes in position so they look as though they are hanging from the top of the card.  Finally I added touches of Stardust Stickles to give the baubles some christmas sparkle.  The sentiment is from a set of stamps by Marianne's, stamped using SU! Cherry Cobbler ink.

Yet another christmas card finished, I think I may almost have enough made now.  I'm busy getting them all written and ready to post in the next couple of days.  I have a few birthday cards to make for family and friends with birthdays in December and early January, so it will be a nice change to create something other than christmas cards this week

Thanks for taking the time to check out my project today.

Great effect from a simple technique Wynneth - you must s urely be caught up with your Christmas card deficit after the last few days.

Hope you and Mr T are feeling better today too

Happy Tuesday
