12 Cards of Christmas - Card 12

Here I am, just in the "nicker" time again! I've left my favourite set - Contempo Christmas - for last. I think this set is the most versatile of the new Christmas sets on offer. I've also snuck in an extra bauble (from Delightful Decorations) on these cards. After all, once you've bought the punch, you need extra variety in baubles, right?!
Did you notice how I've stuck 3 baubles together to make them dimensional? The kids and I are going to be making some more of these for our tree (and for their own little tree that they have upstairs!)
I love these colours together - all from the Subtles family, but I've used the three colours with the most oomph from that range - Rose Red, Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist. The background stamping is done with a stamp from Confetti. These background stamps are so versatile, and so easy to stamp. I pull them out all the time.
Finally, I've added some Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of sparkle. I just applied 2-way glue over the areas that I wanted to bling up and then sprinkled the glitter on top.
Well, that brings me to the end of the 12 cards...although you've really had value for money since I've showed you three cards every day and four cards on one of the days, so I should be calling it 37 cards of Christmas...I hope you've found some inspiration in there somewhere!
I still have some more Christmas projects to show you over the next week, as well as my own Christmas card for this year, so don't go too far away!
