Paper Cuts Seasons Greetings with Blue Gunmetal Glitterbitz

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Ice Crystals Embossing Folder.

I made a frame out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Twinkle Star Frames Die Set. I added it to my background using 2mm Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto Coconut White Card, then Midnight Blue Pearl Card and then another piece of Coconut White Card. I added some 3mm White Pearls to the centre of the stars on my frame.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I cut one of the outer dies from the Paper Cuts Season's Greetings Bauble Duo Die Set out of it.

I cut a pair of dies from the bauble die set out of Coconut White Card. I removed the backing sheet from the plain bauble and added my decorative die cut. I added Cosmic Shimmer Blue Gunmetal Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive.

I tucked a piece of Black Jute into the top of my frame. I popped on my bauble with some Foam Tape. I added a bow tied with May Arts Sheer Iridescent Ribbon and a Silver Vintage Button.
