In this instance the first, is the first time I have ever made a Christmas card in January. I once made one in July for an on-line challenge but my my Christmas card making usually takes place in somewhat of a panic around the middle of November so when Sandra suggested on the Chocolate Baroque forum that some of us form a Christmas card group to encourage each other to make at least one or two cards a month and so spread the load, I decided to sign up and have a go. Sandra even came up with a list of suggestions for themes, the first one being Red and Gold. I know that it is now February but I did just about get this made in time, I just didn't get round to doing the blog until today.
I did actually make two but I took a rubbish photo of
the other one so I haven't bothered to put on here. This beautiful bauble is from a Chocolate Baroque set called Pears and Baubles. I stamped it onto red card with Versamark ink and used WOW Metallic Brass Sparkle embossing glitter to emboss it . I trimmed it down and then double mounted it on gold mirri and red card. The corners on the base card and the sentiment, both CB stamps, were stamped with Versammark and embossed with WOW gold powder. I stamped three corners of the card and added red gems to the centres. The main image was placed centrally with a ribbon bow added, and the sentiment trimmed and mounted on gold card and fixed overlapping the image panel in the fourth corner.
I am pleased that I have made a start and seriously intend to try and keep it up each month, hopefully before the last day or two next time.
