Another Day, another Christmas card.

Well, as you can see, I went for an easel style with these. They use a Sweet Poppy Stencil, called Snowflake Bauble, with Stencil Paste and glitter.

After the stencil paste was added, I sprinkled each of the three baubles with a different colour glitter. It's reasonably easy to do, just make sure you tip the excess in each colour away from the other designs.

When I'd completed them all, they were put aside to dry overnight.

I decided they needed a bit more sparkle, so added toning  acrylic gems to each bauble.

This Crafts Too embossing folder,- which appears to be discontinued, as I just tried a search, but it's 'currently unavailable' everywhere- has a variety of Christmas Greetings, some Embossed, some debossed. You could use it whole, or as I have here, and cut the greetings into strips.

They've been matted onto black, and a very thin border left, then mounted with foam pads to make the 'stopper' for the easel card.

The base paper I used is from the reduced packs I bought in Hobbycraft recently. See post here.

One last card made with the Baubles stencil.
