Spellbinders Bauble Card

Now I could say that I'm sharing this card to encourage you all to start early for Christmas 2013, but I'd be lying! It was one I made for the German shows and didn't get it blogged before Christmas.

I hope you all had a good Christmas. It was a strange one here, hubby and I are still suffering with our colds but somehow Mum and Dad, who were here for a week, managed to avoid catching it. We probably weren't the best company but it was nice to be together. Mum and I spent Boxing Day and the 27th working on the samples for January's shows and I've been finishing them off today. They are a bit of a family affair as I even had hubby doing some drawing on one card for me today. Apparently that's the best bit! :-)

This is an 8x8 card made with a Spellbinders Grand M-Bossibilities folder and Heirloom Ornament (2011) die. The stamps are by Clarity

I stamped the star in purple first, then went over it with Versamark and Stardust embossing powder to make it sparkle.

I had originally intended for the bauble to hang loose in the frame I cut on my Cameo, but as it was for a sample I was worried about it falling off. In the photo it looks like the bauble has a purple mat around it but it is in fact acetate. It's like the filling in a sandwich, holding it all together.

I put a sheet of purple card on the back so that it shows through the acetate from the front. 



  1. Oh Lynne, this is so lovely. I think that you HAVE inspired me to do something similar for my 2013 Christmas cards. Love the idea of acetate which shows the purple card through. How clever you are!XXXXX

  2. Your cards really Re stunning and thanks for accepting my friend request on fb. Have a great new year Elaine x

  3. Simply stunning card, I too have a fancy for getting out the festive stash to make an early start!!!! I image the acetate makes it look like the bauble is floating!! Love it . Can't wait to delve further into your blog. Happy days xxx
