Baubles For Christmas Card Club

Good morning.  I am a couple of days late with my Christmas Card Club entry this week, and usually I am a day early.  My excuse, well it's a reason not an excuse, is that my nephew and his children were here for five days and I did no crafting while they were here.  But we did have a super time.

This time Margaret has asked us to use baubles on our cards - very Christmas-y.

My Cards

5 x 7" base card
green card stock from stash
Frosty Swirls embossing folder - Creative Expressions
Noble Double Pierced Rectangles - Creative Expressions
Baubles image - LOTV
Sentiment stamp - not sure which company

5 x 7" base card
red and silver card from stash
Snowflake Lattice embossing folder - Creative Expressions
Precious Ornaments dies - Memory Box
Baubles brass stencil - Sweet Poppy
sentiment - computer generated
red gems - Hobbycraft

Both cards very easy to put together. I hadn't planned on two cards but after making the first one I found the silver glittered stencils in my snippets box already mounted on silver mirri so I decided to have a go at another card.  Not a roaring success but not too bad.

Hope all is well with you. Take care.
