On the 8th Day of Christmas....

Some lovely shades of purple instead of the traditional red and green. Here we have my 2 favourite purply shades...Perfect Plum for the card base, and the bauble is Vintage Violet. I've used the branch from 'Peaceful Wishes', and stamped a background in Versamark. Then I've used the same branch, this time inked in Handsome Hunter, to stamp a bough for the bauble to hang from on Confetti White cardstock. To make the bauble, I stamped and embossed 'merry & bright' (from All Year Cheer I) in silver on a scrap of Vintage Violet cardstock, and punched it out using my 1 3/8" circle punch. To make the bauble hanger, I used the Double Rectangle punch and cut around it, and then attached it behind my bauble. A piece of Silver Cord, so it can hang from the bough, and an extra bow finishes it off.

  1. oooh, I love it Marelle! I was trying to think of a way to do the hanging attachment for an ornament about this size, and once again you've come up with the solution :-D
