Opulent Baubles

This is another card for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge and Let's Squash It challenges using one of my favourite Christmas 'Emboss, Cut & Stamp' sets.  

I embossed a piece of white card with the baubles embossing folder and trimmed around the edge so it was slightly smaller than the card blank before attaching it to the card.  The embossing folder also die cut the bauble shape.  I attached a snippet of the lemon paper to a piece of white card and stamped the bauble before embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I put the bauble into the embossing folder to use the die to cut it out.  This was then inlaid into the card front.  I stamped the bow onto a snippet of purple textured card and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I fussy cut the bow and attached it to the top of the bauble.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Practical Publishing 'Opulent Baubles' embossing folder and stamps
     Versafine Imperial Purple ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Snippets of lemon paper, white matt card and purple textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     CAS Christmas - Non-traditional colours
     Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Use a Christmas embossing folder and a stamp
     Let's Squash It - Use a Christmas Themed embossing folder and stamps
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 390
