Large Ornate Bauble Card
Posted by ClaireBoelema, 07 Oct, 2018
I recently demoed this shaped bauble card at Clarkes of Sussex - The Art Shop in Brighton. Since the picture went up on Facebook and Instagram, I've had several requests asking how I did it. Rather than responding individually, I thought it would be easier to do a tutorial. Sadly I haven't had time to do a step by step photographic one, but as it's a pretty easy card to make I think the instructions will be pretty easy to follow. If not then please message me and I'll try and sort out a photo step by step. Anyway enough of my chit chat, let's get going! To create this project you will need: X-cut Large Ornate Bauble Die (XCU 503957) Santoro Gorjuss A4 Ultimate Die-Cut & Paper Pack (GOR160902) Santoro Gorjuss Tag Kit (GOR171900) Santoro Gorjuss Ribbon (GOR367900) docrafts Create Christmas Poinsettias (PMA359906) docrafts Create Christmas Iridescent Stones (PMA351906) docrafts Mirri Board (ANT1641002) 13.5cm Square Card Blank (ANT1512020) Faber Castell Metallic Blue Pitt Pen Anita's Tacky Glue docrafts Stick It Foam Pads 1. Die-cut the bauble from silver Mirri card. 2. Using Anita's Tacky Glue, adhere the bauble to a sheet of the blue patterned paper from the Ultimate paper pack. Carefully trim around the bauble. 3. Apply glue to the reverse of the bauble. Place the bauble at a slight angle so that it slightly overhangs the spine of the card and sits flush with the base of the card. Trim around the bauble. If the card doesn't stand properly, then trim a small amount from the bottom to create a flat base. 4. Create a bow from the ribbon and adhere to the top of the bauble. 5. Pop out the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Ultimate Kit and mount it onto blue cardstock using foam pads. Adhere to the card. 6. Place the decoupaged Gorjuss Girl centrally onto the card. 7. Remove the red stones from poinsettias and then use the Pitt Pen to change the colour of the flowers. Place iridescent stones in the centre of the flowers. Attach to the bauble as shown. 8. To finish add stones to the centres of the floral designs on the bauble. If you do recreate this card, or if I've inspired you please feel free to share your work with me.
