I got some of Handmade Holidays Stitched Felt baubles in the Autumn/Winter catalogue share that I did with my teammates (an easy way to get a little bit of everything without breaking the bank) … and they’ve just sat there, neglected and forlorn . Until now …
You know how bad it can be with paper? You don’t want to cut into it and use it? Well I’ve been a bit like that with these baubles. I’ve been thinking that if I use them, I won’t have any left. Logical huh? Well, yes it’s true – but Christmas isn’t so very far away and I’m pretty sure that there’ll be marvellous new products to tempt me next year. So I’m going to use my Stitched Felt baubles (gasp!)
This card is an A6 portrait of Cherry Cobbler. A full mat of Gumball Green card was prepared and a smaller mat of Snow Festival DSP (126908) was trimmed with a Whisper White border using the Adorning Accents Edgelits die (125595). A round Holiday Ornament framelit (127816)* was used to die cut an aperture through the layers bit by bit. The christmas sentiment from the Happy Hour set (W126640 or C126642) was stamped in Versamark ink on the top left of the Gumball Green mat and heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler EP (122949). After switching the cord that comes with the Handmade Holidays Stitched Felt (127832) for some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine (123125) (so it was long enough to tie in a bow), the bauble was hung through the aperture of the Gumball Green layer and the layers adhered together.
For the inside, the small round baubles from the Ornament Keepsakes set (W128048 or C128051)* were stamped in Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green ink onto a Whisper White insert. Lines were drawn from the top of each bauble to the top of the insert with matching markers.
* Buy the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and the Holiday Ornaments framelits together as a bundle (W129949 or C129950) and save 15%! And if you buy the stamp set/bundle together with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP before the end of November, you get the Festive Paper Piercing Pack FREE!
Have a great weekend.
