Red and Green Glitterbitz Baubles

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at CE HQ yesterday - lots of cool techniques learned by all!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Nordic Tiles Embossing Folder. I matted onto Rich Red Card, Brunswick Green Card and another piece of Coconut White.

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

I cut the turtle doves pair of dies from the bauble die set out of Rich Red Card. I removed the backing sheet from the plain bauble, trimmed a little from around the edges and added my decorative die cut. I added Cosmic Shimmer Hunter Green Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive.

I cut the season's greetings pair of dies from the bauble die set out of Brunswick Green Card. I removed the backing sheet from the plain bauble, trimmed a little from around the edges and added my decorative die cut. I added Cosmic Shimmer Apple Red Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive.

I added some Baker's Twine through the tops of the baubles and secured at the back of my background, adding my baubles to my background using CE Mounting Cushion. I added a Baker's Twine bow to each bauble.

I cut the holly corner from the Paper Cuts Turtle Doves Die Set out of Brunswick Green Card 4 times and added them to the corners of my background. I finished my card by adding some Apple Red CS Twinkles to the holly corners.
