Baubles and Branches

I love the baubles from the Holly Bells and Santa Baby set as they are a great size for smaller cards for batch making for Christmas. 
I had stamped the baubles many times and cut them out ready to fix to the cards.
For the first one I stamped the leaf stamp from Thistle Butterfly with green ink
making a circle for the wreath. The baubles are attached with pads so they are raised.
For the second card I added a sentiment to the middle.
The holly branches are ideal for hanging the baubles, I distressed the edges with Vintage photos.

A similar card with a variation of the baubles.

Many thanks for visiting

I too love baubles - there's just something about them at Christmas. Your first card is my favourite with the way you added gems to the baubles' flowers & also as berries for the wreath. A brilliant idea to make a wreath from the Thistle Butterfly stamp & to use several generations of stamping. I think it's the colours you've used for the whole design that just delights my heart!
