Damask Baubles Christmas Cards.
This is why I end up with loads of UFO's! When I've got stuff out, I tend to make a huge batch, rather than just a couple.
These were done using Stencil paste, and then adding Heat Transfer Foil with a laminator.
I did 6 on white card, then another 15 on black card, then matted them onto A5 card bases of the opposite colour.
Some were done with one colour of foil, which was the easiest way.
That's fine as long as you remember not to breathe while arranging it, and don't have any static on your fingers!
Apologies if some look a little blurred, I think it's the holographic effect confusing the camera!
After a bit of trimming to fit the card front, I matted them all up, then added a greeting using up some small peeloff greetings.
Not sure if they show up, but on these I added some small acrylic gems to some of the dots on the baubles, then decided I didn't like it, so didn't do any more. You can see them more clearly in the very first picture.
Next plan will be to try this stencil using paste & glitter, or probably by mixing glitter into paste first, that way when it dries, you don't get any glitter shedding.
I also have a second stencil I bought, called Mistletoe Tree, so that will get an outing soon as well.
