Good morning my dear blogging chums. Hope you are all well. I'm still trying to get used to this work mularky. I'm sure things will be more settled if I get kept on after Christmas and have a contract with a set number of hours.
Nesta is better and thanks you for your good wishes.
Now, today's card was my first play with my SB Heirloom Ornament 2010 set. I thought it was crying out for a dangler (steady !!!)
I started with an A4 piece of 300gsm cream card from Ross Papers, Hougied in half to make an A5 card base.
I then cut an aperture in the front of the card with the 2nd largest bauble.
I had made an embossing mask already with the bauble dies (see pic below) and ran this through the GC to emboss the front of the card.
This is an A5 mask as I tend to make that size card.
Then I made a frame, using gold mirror card, by cutting the largest and 2nd largest baubles together.
I cut various sizes of the baubles in gold and cream for the dangler and did the same for front and back. Its dangling from some Nymo jewellery thread.
The sentiment is from a Dovecraft Christmas set that I got for £1 from the NEC, stamped and gold heat embossed on cream, then matted onto gold mirror card.
A gold satin Mei Flower ribbon bow completes the card.
Have a great week folks and I shall endeavour to post more regularly again if possible.
