Paper bauble

I was really thrilled that my polar bear card was selected as joint top honour in last weeks's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.  This week's challenge is to use decorative papers

I opted for something quite simple as my crafting time is still limited by not feeling well.  I cut 5 ornament shapes from my DP using a nestie, scored each down the middle and folded in half, sticking each to the other to create a 3D ornament.  I mounted that onto a green pearl base that was also cut with a fancy nestie and I embossed a christmas script stamp onto it in gold.


  1. L-O-V-E this! Double puffy heart love! I love using punches to create 3D images--this one is no exception! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT and congrats on last week--your card really thrilled me! :)

  2. Well I'm not surprised that lovely card was a winner Tara! I love this one too - the 3D ornament looks great against the gold script. Sorry to hear you're still not feeling well and I really hope you get it sorted soon. Take care, Vicky x

  3. That is so clever - really beautiful Tara! And well done on your win too honey!

    I hope you are feeling 100% better soon :(
