A Serene Snowflake Bauble

Another Christmas card from my card class.  This week we used the Ornament Punch to make a Christmas bauble.  I think this is a really effective way to use your punch and makes a really pretty card.

The Real Red front panel is popped up on Dimensionals and we made some patterned paper to show through the punched out ornament using Serene Snowflakes in Night of Navy. The panel was layered onto Night of Navy card.

The card base was covered with patterned paper from the Brights Stack with the corners rounded.  This is a great stand by set of papers to buy.  You get 40 sheets of 12" by 12", 2 each of 2 double sided patterns and they are available in each of the colour families.  The paper stacks are currently £15.50 which works out at 39p a sheet.

The sentiment was from Season of Joy and was punched out with an Oval Punch and mounted onto a Decorative Label.  A strip of 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon runs behind it.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my festive card.  Happy crafting. x
