Christmas Bauble Card

Hello my friends! I'm here today to share another Christmas card with you. It's really simple to make.I used two new stamp sets revealed on 1st November - the Winter Wonderland stamp set and the Flourishes Two stamp set

For the background I used purple shimmer paper. I stamped big flourishes from Flourishes Two stamp set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Sparkle Embossing Powder. For the edges I used VersaMarker pen and draw a thin frame around the paper. After that I heat embossed it with Silver Detail EP. I used second largest Circles die from Spellbinders to cut the hole in to the purple paper.

For the 'bouble' I stamped a big flourish with a Lavender Distress ink to a white cardstock. It's really important to let Distress Ink dry completely before you stamp sentiment on top of it. I used heat tool to speed up the process. And after that I used Anti-Static Pouch in heavy handed, just to be completely sure that EP won't stick anywhere else but the sentiment. Sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland stamp set. It is stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP.  
Now the real fun begins... Lay down a strip of  1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to above and below the sentiment. Next to them place a strips of 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. And on top of all (and above) add a strips of  1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. Remove protective sheets from 1/4" Tear-ific tapes, cover them with Reflection Velvet Glitter, burnish it in and tap off the excess. Now remove protective sheets from rest of the tapes cover them with Fiery Fushia glitter.

All you need to too now is cut a square of white cardstock, die cut a hole to it with third largest circle from SB Circles set and glue it behind the previously made Purple paper so the white border can be seen through the hole. I used VersaMarker to draw a border to the white CS on close to the purple paper and heat embossed with Silver Detail EP.  On top part I tied a silver string and a little bow.

The 'bouble' layer is glued down to the card base and purple layer is popped up with foam tape. To get a perfect placement, I put some foam squares around the hole behind the purple layer. This way I can fit 'bouble' perfectly to the hole. Now I place more foam squares around the back side of the purple layer and add liquid glue behind the 'bouble' layer and glue it all the card base.
