This is my card for this week's Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 86. The theme is Make a Christmas Card.
I begun by stamping the baubles. The stamp I used was from Stampin' Up 'Contempo Christmas' stamp set. I stamped the baubles with clear VersaMark ink pad. I then heat embossed them using various colours of WOW embossing powder. I punched out the shapes with my Stampin' Up Baubles punch.
On a square of white card I stamped the green swirls with a Pear Pizzazz green ink pad. I used a stamp from Stampin' Up 'Season of Joy' stamp set. I attached the punched baubles onto the white square. I cut a slit above each bauble and on the swirl. I threaded ribbon through the slits and attached behind the square. On a square card blank I added square of red and gold card as well as the bauble square.
I stamped the greeting and punched out the shape with a Decorative Labels Stamoin' Up punch. I added this to the card with foam pads. I stamped small red flowers using a stamp from the 'Season of Joy' set. I added these to the card and added gold Dimension Pearls to the centre. To finish I added ribbon bows and faux stitching.
