Here is the Tutorial

  1. begin by creating your Card Base by trimming a piece of Thicker A4 Whisper White Cardstock to 21cms x 14.8 cms; Score the long side at 10.8 cms,, fold and use a Bone Folder to run along the fold to make it nice and crisp. Place to one side to avoid contamination.
  2. Stamp the Wide Bauble (ornament) onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Night of Navy Classic Ink Pad; Ink up a wedge of a Stampin Sponge with Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad, ink off most of the ink on the sponge, and then sponge all over the bauble; Cie Cut the bauble using the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies
  3. Using a scrap of Silver Foiled Cardstock, die cut the Bauble Top using the Delicate Ornament Dies; apply a Stampin Dimension to the back of the bauble top (you may need to cut down one of the foam pads to fit).; Loop through a piece of Gold Cording Trim and gently pull the loop tight; add some Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the Bauble.
  4. Trim a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 14 cms x 13.7 cms; take the circular stamp and tree tag stamp from the Vintage Tags Hostess Stamp Set, along with your Bauble and decide on your layout; TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR LAYOUT ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE. take your piece of sponge with the Mossy Meadow Ink on it, and make some gentle sponge marks around your layout; remove the stamps and bauble, and sponge the area in and around the marks you just made. You may need to re-ink the sponge, but ink off any excess ink onto scrap paper.
  5. Using the Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad, stamp the tree stamp tag according to your layout.; Stamp the circular Santa Stamp using the Soft Suede Classic Ink Pad; Mount your Bauble into position, and secure the cording Trim on the back of the panel using a little Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  6. Now for the finishing touches - Tuck a Snowflake Element behind the bauble using a couple of Glue Dots. Be Gentle or you will break the snowflake; Top this with a Metal Rimmed PEarl.Randomly add 3 Iced Rhinestones to the card front; Mat (layer)onto a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock measuring 14.4 cms x 10.1 cms; Finally, mount this onto your Card Base.
