Bauble Christmas Card

I don't usually emboss with coloured card but after crafting with a friend last night and watching her do it I decided to give it a go for my project today.

I have embossed gold card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card and then the gold embossed card. I die cut the baubles using Spellbinders dies. I embossed the bauble elements with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I die cut the poinsettia with a Marianne die and cut the scalloped ovals with Go Kreate dies. I assembled my card. I have attached the white scalloped oval with white tac for display purposes because I will print a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas and die cut it to put in it's place. I have embellished my card with ribbon from my stash with an embellishment from Chloe Creative Cards. I have added a pearl on the poinsettia and Tonic Nuvo drops on the embossing.
