It's Friday again - and that means it's time for another Bah! Humbug! Challenge.
It's the last one for the month of January and the theme this time is BAUBLES.
I decided to be brave and cut into some gorgeous K. & Co. double-sided papers from a collection called Blue Awning to decorate an easel card.
The baubles were created by cutting squares and following the first steps of a tutorial for making a 3D snowflake HERE ... something I had intended doing for last Christmas but never quite managed to find the time.
Hmmm ... I think I cut my strips a smidgeon too thinly as they're a touch flimsy compared to the tutorial version, but are obviously on a smaller scale to fit the card.
After embossing snowflakes with the cuttlebug on a panel of blue cardstock, I heat embossed it with gold and adhered it as a contrasting panel.
The greeting is a simple 'Seasons Greetings' peel off sticker mounted onto more blue cardstock embossed with gold around the edges which are layered with strips from that delicious paper and more peel offs provide the bauble chains.
A large blue ribbon bow adds the finishing touch to the similarily layered centre panel.
If you'd like to see what the other ladies have been up to for this week's challenge then hop over to
Bah! Humbug! and take a peek.
Hopefully their super cards will encourage you to join in and we'll all have lots of cards to choose from this year - with no stress involved!!
