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. :-)

  6. Good evening Clare, Sadly I've been confined to bed (again) for the past week and a half but am determined to be up tomorrow to prepare lunch for my OH and myself as he has been an absolute star and very patient if the truth be told! Today's card is just lovely - thank you. Clare, I've loved your work this year and just want to add my thanks for all your wonderful inspiration. Wishing you, your family and all your many followers a very Happy Christmas. Take care
