I hope you are all having a good weekend. Better late than never, I just want to post a card for the PTI Make it Monday challenge, which this week was to use a glue pad to add flock, perfect pearls or glitter to a card. Its a long time since I got my perfect pearls out so I chose to use them with with some of Dawn McVeys gorgeous stamps. I used the round candy from Candy Cane Christmas to make some baubles and stamped it onto sweet blush card before brushing the pearls on. Its a very grey day today in Manchester, so I've found it quite hard to get good photographs but this shows some of the shine that is quite marked in real life
I cut the baubles out with a1.75 inch circle punch and layered them onto white card cut with a scallop punch. I used some lovely organza ribbon to hang the baubles on and it really pops on the pure poppy card.
I was really pleased with how Dawn's Signature Christmas sentiment stamped and embossed so well on the textured card base I chose.
A little inking and rounding of edges along with some red pearls for the centres of the baubles finished everything off.
Sorry again for the poor light in my photos and thanks for looking.
