Bright Colours Festive Bauble Christmas Card

One of the card making magazines I subscribed to just before Christmas came with a selection of freebies to make your own Christmas cards. As well as the free gift on the front cover, there were the usual printed papers in the middle of the magazine. These are thin pages printed on both sides - which seems a bit pointless as you can usually only use one side - and related images that you can cut out.

What was unusual was the colour scheme - pinks, yellows, blues and purples, not normally colours that are associated with Christmas. I used one of the printed papers showing Christmas baubles to cover a card blank and cut around some other baubles and used adhesive pads to raise them off the card. The sentiment in the middle is also from the printed papers in the magazine, stuck onto card and mounted again with an adhesive pad. It's a bit different from the other Christmas cards you might receive!

I'm sharing this with Sparkles Christmas Challenges as this month they've asked crafters to use non-traditional colours.


  1. Good use of your freebies. Caroline, makes a very bright and cheerful card. I agree with your comments about the papers in magazine, would be better to gave less and better quality paper!
