Red and Green Christmas

This card was made to feature one of the stamps from the Creative Expressions Stamps to Die For range, called Lattice Bauble, on a Create & Craft show. Julia also had embossing folders and the Spellbinders die featured in the card on her show.

The two embossing folders used were Star Pere Noel (on the green card) and New Year Dove (on the red card), both from Couture Creations.

The embossing was highlighted using the Creative Expressions Vintage Golden Green Gilding Wax.

The faux pearls around the edge of the card were made using Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Golden Green Pearlescent PVA.

To make the bow, I used red Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon and a red Dazzler from Creative Expressions.

I coloured in the stamped bauble using Distress Markers and a Water Brush.

I then die cut the bauble using the co-ordinating Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die set and attached this to the card with foam pads, after shaping it slightly.

The bauble and the sentiment were both stamped using a Clear Perfect Medium pad and Cosmic Shimmer Detail Gold Embossing Powder. The sentiment comes from the Creative Expressions Winter Greetings stamp set.

Happy crafting!
