Contempo Christmas



This is my card for this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 71. The theme is Bring on the Bling!!!

The stamp set I used for the card is 'Contempo Christmas' by Stampin' Up. I begun by stamping the two baubles using Stampin' Up Real Red ink pad onto smooth white card. I also stamped the greeting in Old Olive. I attached two strip of gold ribbon to the card. I cut a small slit above each bauble which I threaded the ribbon through. I also attached a bow tied with the same ribbon. I rounded the corners with a corner punch.



I mounted the stamped panel onto a panel of gold card. I also rounded the corner of the gold card. I attached this all onto a card blank. I added red gems to the baubles. To finish the card I added gold dots around the edge.
