Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well and warm. I don't mind it being nippy if the Sun is shining but I hate dull damp days. . . . . .plays havoc with me feathers lol!!!
Thank you for your lovely comments on my Blog Hop card. The Hop runs until the15th so you still have time to join in and even enter a card. There are loads of lovely prizes to win.
I have started making inroads into my Christmas cards as I don't know about time flying, its more like time going at warp factor 6. . . . . . .if I give her any more, she will definitely blow lol!!! (sorry to any Trekkies out there). I also have Mr D's birthday a week before Christmas too so its all go.
Now, this one I have kept quite CAS as I wanted it to be all about the woven ribbon. I saw something similar at the NEC and decided to put my spin on it.
The bauble is cut from the card front and the aperture is filled with the woven ribbon from behind like so. . . . . . .
I just used double sided tape around the edges to stick the ribbon.
To give it a bit of depth, I padded this out with a cotton wool pad, like so. . . . . . . . . .
I then topped this with another A5 piece of white card to hide the gubbins.
The red bauble frame is foam padded to give even more depth.

Probably looks more fiddley than it is but I've been playing with some more in the same vein.
Well, I'm off to John's today to meet up with him and Wendy (Spanish Crafter) armed with Thank Crunchie its Friday, even though its Thursday lol!
So, warmest wishes to each and everyone of you too and see you again, soon
