Back to Christmas as Sue has some shows scheduled today which include the Heirloom Ornament die and the bauble stamp used in this card so I thought it would be appropriate to share it with you.
For the background, I randomly stamped a swirl from the Creative Expressions Beaded Elements Stamp Set using Perfect Medium. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Black Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.
I stamped the bauble from the Creative Expressions Christmas Bauble Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with scissors leaving a small white border all round the edge. I threaded an Idea-ology Bauble onto some black Baker's Twine from the Primary Set, tied a bow and added it to the top of the bauble.
I cut a black bauble using the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Bauble die set. At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Hedged Maze Embossing Folder. I wrapped some Baker's Twine around to the back of the card, added my black bauble die cut and then my stamped bauble.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Let it Snow Stamp Set again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners. I cut another banner out of black card and at the emboss stage I added the Hedged Maze Folder again. I glued it to the back of the stamped banner offsetting it slightly. (sorry photo is blurred!)
I pressed a couple of Creative Expressions Decorative Metal Corners into Perfect Medium, sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder and heat set. Incidentally, if you find this particular corner too big for your project then you can easily trim them down with scissors.
I finished the card off with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre.
Sue's shows are scheduled for 8am and 11am on Create & Craft and then 3pm on Ideal World. I take over tomorrow with shows at 12noon on Ideal World and 4pm and 7pm on Create & Craft.
Thanks for stopping by.
