Bauble Joy

Hello lovely peeps!

I'm back with another simple Christmas card. This card has an elegant bauble hanging from a branch in warm chocolate, red and aqua.

What you need...

Dies: Holiday Words Script (660058) Tim Holtz, Triplits Ornaments (659929) - Sizzix; Flowering Winterberry (MB98391) - Memory Box
Card stock: cocoa, red, aqua, white
Baker's twine: red
Pearl: white

What you do...

1 Die cut the branch and large background layer of the ornament in cocoa, the ornament in red and the snowflake inner and the 'joy' in aqua card.

2 Cut a piece of white card 10cm x 14cm and attach the branch to to the top right so it overlaps the edge slightly.

3 Assemble the ornament, fixing a length of twine from the hanger, tie a knot in the loose end. Stick to the lower left of the card so the knot sits on one of the branches.

4 Place the 'joy' to the right of the ornament. Add a twine bow to the top and a pearl to the centre. Mat the panel onto a white 10.5cm x 14.5cm blank.

There you have it, a simple yet elegant card. This would also look lovely on a dark background with icy whites and pale blues.

The ornament set is excellent value for money as it has 9 dies in the set and you can create multiple combinations to create beautiful baubles. You could stick two back to back and hang them on a Christmas tree.

I'm going to sign off for now, thank you for popping by and I'll see you next time!
