Two more cards to accompany baubles

These are the remainder two cards I created to accompany the baubles below. This card I have used a cream pre-scored card for the base card. Then a layer of the beautiful paper that Thearica sent me and that I had used in the bauble I was giving my friend Joy. I then added a strip of gold ribbon and topped with the medallion which I made using my Spellbinder nestabilities (small circles and small scalloped edged circles). Next I inked up my Just Rite Stampers. I love that I can change the borders and create my own stamp with my friends initials. Finished with a circle of bling that was lucky enough to win earlier this year.

This card I made for my friend Anita. Once again I have used Denise's Pick Three challenge from last week to start me off on the card. One of the choices was a colour combination of Black, Red and Teal. Not colours I would even think to put together but when I got them out I thought why not. So I started with black leather craft card for the base card. Then added a strip of red paper which had been run through the Swirl embossing folder. Topped this with a piece of gold ribbon. Then out came my spellbinder nestabilities to create the medallions. Next I inked up my Just Rite Stampers again wonderful how I can change them around and personalise the stamps. I wasn't quite happy with the flower I had used in the centre of the top and bottom medallions so I covered that with a red square bling which was great for the card. Finished off with a Letraset rub on greeting.
