Christmas cards - Aqua with white hanging baubles

Two Christmas cards to share today, both basically the same, just a slightly different sentiment on each one :-)

I cut a background panel from Bazzill 'Sparkle' and used my south-west corner punch for some tiny detail.  Then I die-cut the hanging baubles (Memory Box die) and stuck them down .... this is easier said than done, the die is so delicate it stretches a bit when you're trying to stick it down!  I actually cut four, but only got two finished cards in the end :-)  I have bought some glue pens to try next time, my usual Herma just doesn't deal well with intricate dies.

I do love the aqua/white combination and this is a nice simple card - if I can get the things glued down more easily ...... more experimentation needed :-)

  3. These are really lovely - I always use the Sakura Quickie glue pen for very intricate stuff
