Simple christmas cards,

simple set of christmas cards, made with white card, baubles from a set i got in Pennys (Primark) last year,

i inked around the edge of the cards with Cat's eye chalk red ink, and then periced the top of the baubles with my pokey tool and tread some red spakley thread through them. i got the thread in a fabric shop, its for a sewing machine,

next i put faom squares on the back of the baubles and stuck them to the cards, the big one in the middle and the two smaller ones at different levels on the card, then i added the greeting at the bottom.

next I'd to stick down the thread, i used Anitia's tackey glue and put some on the underneath of the thread with a lollypop stick, and stuck it down, then i added silver snowflakes and red gem dots in the middle of them, i put three of these on each card.

in the set of 5 i made two tent fold and three normal fold. I'm not sure if i like them or if they are too simple, heres some photos of the thread, i love it, i'm not sure if you can see it but its hologramy, its fabby fab but a pain in the ass to stick down, :)

thanks for any comments and thoughts,
