This weeks card of the week is made by John Lockwood, we grabbed his instructions from his blog from the following link johnnextdoor.blogspot.com (it’s quite a long way back – Deer Baubles – Sunday, 5 August 2018)
I started by cutting the outer die in my Time Flies die set which was designed to be a pocket watch but also a Christmas Bauble ( I love making sure you can do more than one thing with a die). I then added clear acetate to the front and ran tape all around the circle on the back. Next I cut the 2 dies in the Deer Scenes die set and added one to each bauble over the foam tape. I then added a little snow and another layer of foam tape (so that the deer die cut was sealed in) following this with another layer of acetate.
This makes a bauble that is independent of the card backing; you could make them swing if you want.
Finally I added the Ball Chain die cut in silver and wrapped the end around the bezel of the bauble. I arranged these on an embossed backing just adhering them at the top and having them overlap.
Finally I added a small poinsettia cut in vellum with a diamond in the centre of each and a few gems on the backing!
