A quick and easy bauble card & Boxing Day Bonanza

Happy Christmas Eve to you.  I'm sure its madness out and about this morning with everyone getting their last minute presents and food so I"m keeping well away.  We're all organised, amazingly and can enjoy the day wrapping presents, watching Christmas movies and eating mince pies lol!!! 
My quick and easy card today was made using a white card bland, some die cut baubles and holly leaves and a lovely Christmas sentiment.  Heres the supply list and how it came together. 
Supply List 
6" x 6' Card blank 
5 3/4" square mirri card 
White  5 1/5" card square
corner punch 
JOFY 12 mini leaves
Susans Garden Leaves, Woodland Die set 659661
Sizzix Triplits Ornaments die set 659929 
Impression Obsession Die - Merry Christmas
Geeen Olives Distress Ink 
Red Copic Chao No37
Tacky Glue 
Decoart Crystal Glitter 
Pewter Paperatsy Paint 

Ink up an offset of white card with green ink, stamp and cut out some holly leaves.
Die cut the baubles, centre sections and leaves.  Ink to leaves with green ink and colour one base bauble, one framed bauble and star with red pen.  Colour the bauble tops and star with pewter paint and then cut two narrow strips of white card.  Put a little tacky glue on them and sprinkle glitter over while wet. 
Mat the card base, mirri card and white card top together using tacky glue or tape and position sentiment bottom right. (Don't stick in place until you have the baubles on your card.

Layer up your baubles, stick pieces together and add the mnarrow card hangers through the holes at the top. Mount one on foam pads and stick both in place to the left of your card.  Then add your holly leaves.  I used red dew drops for my berries.  Stick your sentiment in place to finish off your card.  
 I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy make, thank you for calling by, have a wonderful Christmas Eve and catch up again soon. :-)

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
