A Silver Christmas Bauble Card

Hello there my blogging friends and family. How have you been today? It's been a really strange day here, rainy, very overcast and then it went very dark, but cleared up a little just before evening set in. Frits managed to get out on the tractor just before the rain set in to slash the paddocks to tidy them up. He did a great job!

I have one of my favourite cards to show you today. I loved making it and I think it looks gorgeous - let me show it to you....

Don't you think this card is just yummy?

I first cut a silver metallic piece of card stock from an American Crafts 12 x 12 card stock pad to fit onto my white card stock base. Then I cut a white card stock mat on top of that which I paper pierced.

Then the top piece of white card stock I cut multiple times with an Elizabeth Craft Design Sprig with Berries die. Then I used the Sue Wilson Vintage Bauble die, some more white and silver card stock to create the centre piece of the card.

I used the Sue Wilson Austrian Border, Corner and Tag die to create the sentiment piece, using a Just Rite stamp, memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and some more silver card stock. I die cut it again in white card stock and fussy cut it out placing it on foam pads on top of the silver tag I had previously die cut out.

I used all the pieces of sprigs that I had cut out, added glue to them then covered with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow before placing in the top left area of the card. I then used a Deco pearl paint pen to add faux pearls all over the spaces around the leaves. Then added the Bauble, sentiment, a ribbon tied into a bow on top of which I placed a sparkle thingy I had in my stash.

The main ingredients I used to make this card were:
