It began with a sketch from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and gathered a few other challenge pointers along the way.
The bauble was the first thing I made because I wanted to try an experiment, part of it worked and part didn't, so I'm only showing you the bit that did! I stamped and embossed with Wow Clear Sparkle on to white card, then used a Brilliance Dewdrop pearl ink pad to colour over the embossing. The sparkle doesn't show well in the photo but it is an amazing powder for Christmas things.
The panel the bauble is mounted on has been embossed with a folder called Snowflakes from Cuttlebug. The dark blue strip is cut from the same card as the mat layer then covered with a snowflake border peel off in white. To finish it off I have used some glitter foam letters in blue for a greeting.
