Merry Christmas Sentiment Dies Bauble Card
Today's card is a gold square card blank, layered with the largest die out of the Tonic Studios Merry Christmas Sentiment dies cut in green and glued down. The next layer was cut in red glitter card with gold backing to show up the greeting and stuck down at a 90 degree angle to the base layer, points to the centre. The smallest layer was cut again in green with a gold backing to show the holly detail.
When I made this, I didn't have a lot of Christmas dies so I improvised, the bauble was made by cutting five small scalloped circles, scoring and folding them in half and sticking them back to back but with the first and last layers being stuck on to the card base.
A small length of holly printed ribbon was added to resemble a hanger and a hand tied bow was stuck just at the top of the bauble.
The card was finished off with some tiny red gems to look like holly berries.
I hope you like this and that it inspires you to use what you have to make something different :)
