I have to admit, when I saw that the challenge this week at Addicted to CAS was bauble, I was like HUH?  I had not heard that word before!  Apparently it means ornament so I was excited for this one!  I don't think I've used this ornament from Joyous Celebrations looked pretty clean. ;) lol
I really love this embossing folder.  I brayered the inside with Old Olive ink before running it through the Big Shot.  I did this on the side that feels raised on the inside, which is the opposite side I usually put the ink on.  I wanted the inside of the wreath to be colored, not the edges.  For my bauble, I stamped it in Midnight Muse ink, covered it with Crystal Effects and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on it.  I then let it set for about 2 hours to dry before I cut it out and adhered it with Dimensionals.
Not the greatest picture but I hope you get the idea!

  1. Beautiful! I have not long got this embossing folder and haven't used it yet. I had it out today but it sort of intimidates me. I think it is so lovely, I don't want to just use it willy nilly lol. Your technique of using the colour inside is something I am going to try!! Thanks for the inspiration xx

  2. Beautiful card Shana. I love that embossing folder - it's so opulent and rich. Gorgeous.
