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.
