Bauble Christmas Card

I have made this card with a Welsh sentiment. Nadolig Llawen A Blwyddyn Newydd Dda -
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Cards with a Welsh sentiment are few and far between and when you do find them they are very basic. So my Welsh speaking recipients love seeing their sentiments on the cards.

This is a 8x8in white card which I have matt and layered with purple card and white embossed card. I have embossed the card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have printed the sentiment and die cut it with a Crafts Too die and layered it on a purple  cut out from the next size die.  The bauble is cut out using a Spellbinders Heirloom Set. I have embellished the bauble with a poinsettia cut with a Marianne die, ribbon, a stick pin which I have made myself and a pearl embellishment. I have completed my card by decorating the embossing with gems. 

This is a simple but effective card and one my son thinks is "posh" for his teachers!!
