All White Bauble

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and we want to see your 'All White' creations.  I'm entering the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and the The Merry Christmas Challenge 'Always Anything Goes + Christmas'.


Card blank: 5" x 5" white matt
Dies: Marianne Designs Creatables 'Christmas Bauble' (magazine freebie), Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large'
Embossing: Apple Blossom 'Holly' folder (magazine freebie)
Card: White matt and white pearlescent
Other: White ribbon

I embossed a piece of white card, trimmed it around the border, layered it onto a slightly larger piece of white pearlescent card and attached it to the front of the card.  I die cut the Christmas bauble from pearlescent card and also a circle of the same size. I attached the bauble to the circle.  I then die cut the bauble from white matt card and inlaid the pieces into the bauble.  I normally run an inlaid die cut through my Cuttlebug to ensure everything is flat, but as the bauble had some embossing I rolled it with a brayer instead so it wasn't flattened too much. The bauble was attached to the centre with foam tape.  To finish I made a small white ribbon bow and attached it to the top of the bauble with a blob of Pinflair glue.
