Christmas Bauble Cards

I made this cards a couple of weeks ago and really liked how they turned out, again a set of 3. I've used Always Artichoke, River Rock and Very Vanilla for all three. I think these colours look great together. Here's the first one:

Stamp Sets: Season of Joy and True Friend
Ink: Always Artichoke
Accessories: Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon, gold brads, dimensionals, Boho Blossoms Punch, 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches and mini glue dots.
Here's the second card:

For the baubles on this card I used the snow flake from the Season of Joy stamp set. I also stamped the polka dot background stamp on the base of the card a little something extra which I really like.

And the third card:

I've used River Rock for the card base and stamped the polka dot background in River Rock ink, apart from that everything else is the same.

For the bows on the cards I stuck the lengths of Artichoke ribbon on the card at the desired lengths using double sided tape. I then tied each bow individually and stuck them down using mini glue dots - they worked a treat.

I love all your cards Kellie, and I really love the effect of this one with the ribbon being used as string for the Christmas balls with bows, I am a ribbon girl :).
