Joyful Greetings

Hello there peeps!
Hope you are all fit and well on this glorious Autumn day!
I'm back with another Christmas card I rustled up last night. Here we go...

What you need...

Patterned papers: Snow Day Collection 6 x 6 Pad - Crate Paper
Stamps: Joyful Greetings - Paper Smooches
Die: Ornaments #3 Framelits Die Set & Stamps 658277 - Sizzix
Punches: circle, 1", 5/8", 3/8"
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Card stock: white
Baker's twine: black
Gems: clear, black

What you do...

Cover an A6 top fold blank with a slightly smaller piece of green circles paper. Stamp the greeting at the top of white card 9.5cm x 12.5cm and mount onto the blank.

Die cut the long bauble in multi-coloured circles paper and the hanger part in brown snowflake paper.

Punch three different sized circles in co-ordinating papers and assemble the bauble. Attach to the lower right of the blank.

Stick small black gems from the bottom of the 't' to the top of the bauble. Wrap twine around the top of the card three times and tie in a knot. Finish with a small twine bow and a few gems.

Ta da! Another quick and easy card. Well, I'm off now to have a cuppa and a piece of sticky lemon drizzle cake (I made it yesterday) yummy yum! Then it's back to creating another little masterpiece.

Until then my
