CHRISTMAS BAUBLE IN PURPLE




It's amazing when you think how many items you have around the house or things that are not especially made for cardmaking which you can transform or adapt into great embellisments for your cards. Here's an example of what I turned into a lovely Christmas embellishment. For this card I used one earring from the pair I bought on a sale at the beginning of this year. They were too big and round and didn't suit my face so I thought they would be a great embellishment for my cards and transform the earring by adding a bow to the top to make it look like a Christmas bauble. I matted and layered it with purple cardstock. Finally I used purple wrapping paper and peel-off greeting.

Es fascinante cuando te pones a pensar cuantos articulos tienes en casa o cosas que no son especificamente para hacer tarjetas las cuales puedes transformar en geniales adornitos para tus tarjetas. Aqui esta un ejemplo de lo que convertí en un lindo adornito de navidad. Para esta tarjeta utilizé un arete del par que compré en un remate a comienzos de este año. Eran demasiado grandes y no iban con mi estilo asi que pensé que serian adornos geniales para mis tarjetas y transforme el arete en una bolita navideña al agregarle un lazo en la parte superior. Tambien pusé 2 capas mas de cartulina morada a este arete como fondo. Finalmente use papel de regalo morado y pegatinas para el saludo.
