This is my project for the challenge at craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper
Every year I say I am going to start my Christmas cards earlier. This year I was determined to start in September............so here is the first one!
I have matt and layered the top and bottom of my 8x8in easel card with patterned paper and plain red card. I die cut the baubles using a Spellbinders nesting set.
I embossed the baubles with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I die cut the poinsettia with a Tattered Lace set. I attached satin ribbon down my card where the two papers meet. I added a panel across the base of the card using foam pads so this would act as the stopper for the top. I added die cut ovals to the base that I cut with dies from a Presscut nesting set, I will add a personalised sentiment to the ovals. I attached narrow gold ribbon from the baubles to the top of my card and then completed my card with flat backed pearls.
