Baubles at Christmas card Club

Hello there! Well another fortnight in lockdown has rolled around - and its time for Christmas card club again. This time the theme is baubles.

I made another 4 cards this time - all 4 had element of flake on them but this first pair also included the use of luscious powders which work so well on black card applied along with flake to flitter powder. The stamp is a chocolate baroque one.

Foe this next pair I stamped another chocolate baroque image on black card using flitterglu and added kust flake this time - then I used an old TH die to cut the shapes before adding them to chocolate baroque backgrounds.

My mum has made three stunners this fortnight - i have had to order the stamps - they are from claritystamp.

if I had to choose one it would be the final one - so very pretty! Love them all but that one just wins it by a whisker for me!

I do hope you have enjoyed our samples. I can't wait to see what everyone else has done!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
