Christmas Card: Baubles on a Tree Branch

I like the combination of the new bauble stencils with the Pine Needle stencil from Claritystamp.  I used my favourite Distress Oxides on kraft card technique to create the background on this Christmas card.
Blend Peacock Feathers Oxide through the bauble aperture stencil onto a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card.
Lay the Pine Forest bauble over the top and blend Cracked Pistachio through it.
Add heat embossed gold highlights using a Versamark pen and gold embossing powder.
Mask off the bauble using the smaller circle mask that comes with Tina’s Summer Layering Circle stamps. Add a bauble in the same manner to the right in Broken China Oxide. Add the detail with Peacock Feathers Oxide and add further gold highlights.

Add a further bauble to the left of the first using Cracked Pistachio as the base and Broken China for the detail. Add gold embossing.

Go round each of the baubles with a gold metallic pen.
Fussy cut the baubles.
Blend Peeled Paint Oxide over the front of a 7” x 7” kraft card blank.
Lay the pine needle stencil over the top and go over with Pine Needles Oxide.
Repeat but offset using Forest Moss Oxide.
Add further pine needles using Pine Needles oxide and finish with a top layer in Peeled Paint Oxide.

Add the baubles to the front of the card.
Draw lines to the top of the card from each bauble in gold metallic pen and stamp Season’s Greetings (Word Chain 14) in Versamark ink.  Heat emboss in gold.
