On the Ninth Day of Chrismtas my true love gave to me "some Christmas baubles" card
Guess what only one month until Christmas. I hope you are all further along with your Christmas shopping than I am.
This card doesn't look as good here as it does sitting on my desk. The photography leaves a lot to be desired.
To create the baubles I have just punched out on scrap two 1 3/8" circles. Then lying them on my Whisper White I have used my daubers to ink one hole in Baja Breeze and the other in Riding Hood red. Using the swirl from Spotlight on Christmas I have then stamped in opposite colours onto the bauble leaving my mask in place. To create the circle to stamp on I used my Nestabilities Large Circles. I am really looking forward to the summer mini coming out so that I don't have to resort to using something non Stampin' Up! to get this effect. The sentiment is from Snow Swirled and has been stamped using Riding Hood Red - I think it would look better though in white.
