Sparkly Beautiful Baubles

In yesterday’s post I said I saved all the little pieces when I die cut the two baubles. In today’s post I’ll show you how I used those pieces. I used the same Detailed Baubles Thinlits Dies along with the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, Circle Punches, Feathers & Frost stamp set, Black Foil sheets, and Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. 

Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Baubles handmade Christmas card with glimmer paper by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Tranquil Tide card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 2″ x 7/8″
  • DSP cut to 2″ x 3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Feathers & Frost stamp set:

  • sentiment in black ink onto the 2″ DSP strip

Cut using Circle Punches:

  • one end of the DSP strip using the 1″ punch
  • one end of the Basic Black CS strip using the 1-1/4″ punch
  • NOTE: I held the punch upside down, then inserted the paper down into the hole and out the side.

Die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies:

  • pine sprigs (3 each of the longest and middle size in the die set) from a scrap of Tranquil Tide CS

Die cut using the Detailed Baubles Thinlit Dies:

  • 2 ornaments from a scrap of a Black Foil Sheet
  • 1 ornament from a scrap of Tranquil Tide glimmer paper*
  • 1 ornament from a scrap of Merry Merlot glimmer paper *
  • * I used the 2 glimmer paper ornament outlines on yesterday’s card, which you can see here, and saved all the little pieces for today’s card.
  • NOTE: I find it easier to die cut glimmer paper with the glitter side down. If you do that, be sure to cut the black foil ornaments face down as well, so all the pieces will line up correctly.

Assembled the Beautiful Baubles card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • two black foil ornament outlines glued onto the DSP layer
  • black foil ornaments filled using the glimmer paper die cut pieces, gluing each piece in place
  • sentiment glued onto the Basic Black CS strip, lining up the punched ends, then glued onto the DSP layer
  • die cut pine sprigs glued onto the DSP layer over the tops of the ornaments
  • DSP layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
