Simple Star and Bauble Card


Can you believe it's only four sleeps to go until that chubby chap comes a calling lol!  Are you all ready for the big day.  I was thinking I am but have just thought of a few more things I've just got to get so am off to join the crowds of Christmas shoppers this afternoon .
My card today is a quick and simple one  coloured with distress pens.  I've made it in two colour ways but the process is the same. 
Supply List

Silver Tinsel Twine

Colour one wreath completely with distress pens and a little water and the large stars on the other 
Add a few sequins in your chosen colours to a few of the baubles and then cut out the wreath and large stars 
 
Colour a small piece of tinsel twine with a red alcohol pen 
Cut  the following out of white card:  one 3 3/4" square, one 5" square and then cut one 3 7/8" square and one 5 1/8" square of mire card in your chosen colour.  Stub cut the corners on all pieces.   
Use the border stamp to add detail to the four sides of the large white card square. Colour with distress pens and then mat the white and gold squares together. 
Stick the tinsel piece in place, mount the wreath on foam pads and stick it centrally to the white card.  and then stick the assembled card front to your card blank to finish
