Winter Wishes Baubles

Today's card is made using the Rococo Bauble die and The Winter Wishes from the Christmas Wishes header fold die set.  I wanted to use pearlescent card for this so I had to cut my own 8" x 8" card blank again but this time after cutting an A4 sheet down to 8" in width I only made a pencil line there the 8" length score line would be as I didn't want a score line spoiling the centre of my header die cut.  I also cut a separate 8" x 8" piece for the back of my card which obviously doesn't get stuck on until the header has been cut out.

To cut the header die, I lined up the little notches in the bottom of the shape die centrally on my 8" pencil line, I taped this down and ran it through the cutting machine.  Next was the pattern part of the die, I lined this up, taped it down well and because its cutting in pretty much the centre of the board then it does take a few passes and possibly a few shims to get a nice clean cut but persevere because it really is worth it.  Once I was happy with my header die cut, I placed the card back on my score board and scored the two sides.  I covered the small back flap with double sided tape and stuck my card back in place.

I cut a layer of silver glitter card and a layer of white pearlescent card for the top layer which I stuck in place with silicone glue as I was sticking to glitter card.  I die cut three white baubles and three silver glitter circles and glued these together, added three strips of thin ribbon to my card where I wanted the baubles to hang and stuck them in place with 3d foam.  I hand tied three bows out of wide ribbon and glued these to the tops of the baubles.

I hope you like it,
