Holly Baubles


This is another simple design that works well in different colourways.  The baubles are the 'waste' from the aperture cards in the previous posts 'Frosted Fir' and 'Quick Christmas Cards'.  The base cards are either white or cream textured card.  The corners have been stamped with a holly corner image using distress inks, and pens to colour the berries.  The edges of the base card are tinted with distress ink.  The background panel is a piece of printed paper from Artilicious Christmas CD rom.  Glitter has been added to the holly leaves both on the paper and on the baubles.  The baubles have been colour tinted around the edges with distress ink, so have the panels.  Gold and silver Krylon pens have been used to edge the panels, giving the appearence of a layer of card underneath.  The panels are then added to the base card, and the baubles are positioned off center and attached with dimensional glue.  A little bow and a greeting completes the design.
