Carte a Jouer #24
The theme for this challenge is a Christmas Bauble and the Technique is 3D. Isa gave us a tutorial on making a 3D shape here at http://isasart.blogspot.com/2011/12/carte-jouer-challenge-24-boule-3d.html. For my card I took some green paper with a white fir tree branch pattern as my background. I stamped and embossed it with swirls and snowflakes with a snowflake white embossing powder to give a wintry feel to the base. The edges I embossed with copper and cut a small piece of copper ribbon to make the bow and line for the bauble. I made three baubles with a small sizzix fluted edged circle die, two white and one red. I stuck them together to make a fuller looking bauble. I may put some stickles along the fluted edges to make them pop even more.
