Belle of the Bauble

Today I have another card to share using the WPlus9 Holiday Trimmings stamp set.

I was inspired by the cards I’d seen using this set, with a row of baubles, but wanted to put my own spin on it. This card was simple to mass produce (I made 8 in one crafting session) so perfect for quickly making a batch of Christmas cards.

I did all the cards in stages, and started with the stamping. A stamp positioner is a big help for this part. Once I’d stamped all the baubles, I heat embossed in silver, the decorative elements. Then I added the sentiment in black ink.

Next, I cut down the stamped panels with the Lil’Inker deco edges. I did the same with some silver glitter card, layering behind the stamped panels before adhering to card bases. I kept the layers flat, so they’d go through the post easily.
