Christmas Baubles card two
Hi everyone, another take on the Christmas Baubles image for this card and another way to use the image. The download has a transparent background which means it can be printed on patterned paper and used for paper piecing. I printed three sheets of gingham patterned paper, put them back through the printer and printed the baubles image on top of them all. I then cut and pieced the various patterned pieces around the baubles image printed on white card. The background is the offcuts from each of the three gingham sheets arranged to give a patchwork effect and I've doodled stitching around these and another piece that was cut on one edge with a scalloped blade for the centre panel. The plain image is cut with the largest of the Labels one nestability dies, the edges doodled and sponged with ranger distress in black soot. I stamped around the edges with various small stamps from a Woodware Christmas sentiment set. Apart from a piece of white ribbon under the die cut there is absolutely no bling or glitter on this card which must be a first!!!! TFL.
