Claire's Stampin' Up! 12 Days of Christmas Day 12 - Tree Trimmings

Here we are at day 12, my last card of the series. Time for some glitter don't you think? This card uses Tree Trimmings, one of the sets from the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue. These products are only available until November 30th, so get in quick!

Tree Trimmings

I have used the Rock and Roll technique on the feature bauble and then added some Dazzling Diamonds to all three baubles using my Two Way Glue Pen. Before I adhered the feature bauble with Dimensionals (and before I added the Dazzling Diamonds), I masked the two base baubles and stamped the En Francais background stamp over the top in Sahara Sand (stamped off once). I also stamped this background without stamping off) on the base card layer (and let's just pretend I stamped it straight OK?).

Now this I really really like Claire. Love the layering and the distressing around the edges. Bringing the Baja Breeze into it, really gives the card a lift I reckon.

Very gorgeous Claire. I'm having a glass of red whilst looking at your blog and that background stamp looks straight to me!!!

WOW!!! You sure finished off with a super stunning card! Claire how do you do it? REALLY!!?? This is amazing, I love the background and the bauble is divine, ohhh it's all soooooo pretty, and that paper! I haven't seen that in real life. Outstanding!!!
