Well its a quick change from Autumn to Christmas with the First Christmas card of September!
This looks like a complex card but its quite easy to replicate honest lol. I stared by covering a piece of card with CE double sided adhesive sheet. Next I cut 2 circles out using the outline die form the Joy die. I adhered one to the other then ran this through my Platinum using the Joy insert die. By having 2 pieces stuck together the die doesn't cut through it just cuts the carrier sheet of the adhesive.
For the bauble tops I cut the top piece form the Sue Wilson Vintage bauble set ( One of the early Festive Dies) I then attached gold metallic linx to simulate the strings.
The white die cuts I shaded using gold treasure Metallic gilding polish. I then arranged these on top filling out the branch look.
Sue Wilson will be demoing a similar technique on her Festive Die shows on Hochanda this month so tune in to see this in action.
