I had seen some wonderful cards made with Simon say Stamp Ornate Ornaments and oxides so I thought I would give it a go.

First I use a Clear Inkpad for embossing and watermarking and then used WOW Opaque White with the Ornate Ornaments and used various colours to make my baubles. In the end I cut out with the Dies about 12 baubles with one card making it to the bin and a couple I saved for later use.

In the end I made four cards three very similar and this one, I decided this was my favourite and to use it for this weeks challenge.

All baubles need something to hang from so I used the Simon says Stamp Pine Needles, I need to find an easier way to attach my gold thread round the branches. I few choice words and fingers covered in glue but luckily none on the card.

To cover up the ends of the needles I added some Holly and Berries using the Simon says Stamp Holly Fanfare. I did them in white so the colour of the baubles would stand out and the red berries.

Nearly forgot I run a bit of plain white card through the Big Shot with Simon says Stamp Wonky Rectangles and I also remember to stamp the sentiment first which was also in the stamp set.

The other ones I made I show later this week if I don't have a senior moment.

These are very pretty baubles and love the softer tones you have used for them together with the white pine branches and holly, and the berries really pop against it Debby. The gold thread works perfectly for hanging the baubles, and the wonky stitches die cut rectangle stands out beautifully from the red background, and a coordinating red sentiment to finish. Gorgeous! x

This is absolutely beautiful card, Debby! Love three different colors of ornaments and white sprigs/leaves. Limited colors of background really makes the ornaments brighter. Great design
