Turquoise Baubles

Today's card uses two of the new bauble stamp designs from Creative Expressions, which co-ordinate with existing Spellbinders die sets. This design is called Floral Bauble and Mini Floret Bauble.


The base card is a plain black square. I then cut a slightly smaller square in a pretty blue shade, which I embossed using the Couture Creations Baubles & Baubles embossing folder. I extended the pattern so that the card was embossed all the way along the top edge. The folder didn't reach the bottom edge of the card but this was covered over by the next layer of white card anyway. 

The white piece of card was cut along the top edge using the Spellbinders A2 Curved Border One die set. As the card was slightly wider than the length of the die, I extended the cut slightly. 

The ribbon tied around the white card layer is Creative Expressions White Sheer Wrinkle Edge Ribbon, topped with a circle dazzler. 

The sentiment message was stamped using a Black Archival Ink Pad and a stamp from the Creative Expressions Winter Greetings A5 Stamp Plate. 

The three baubles were stamped using a Clear Perfect Medium Pad on matching blue card and then heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Detail Silver Shine Embossing Powder. The stamped baubles were die cut using the matching sized dies from the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die set. The baubles were then shaped to give them a rounded shape and threaded together with a piece of black and white Bakers Twine. The baubles were attached using a few foam pads stacked on top of each other, to keep the height in the centres. 

Happy crafting!
