Couture Creations Christmas Baubles

Christmas Baubles 
By Sue Smyth 

Hi all
As Christmas approaches, I love to make decorations
I can give away to friends and family

Here are two charming baubles to make with
Couture Creations Dies

Cut two bauble shapes from cardstock and chipboard.
Use a die or a jam jar lid, add a small square shape
to one edge of the circle for a true bauble shape.

Emboss the cardstock with  a Merry Little Christmas embossing folder

Dry brush with white gesso

Spray with Red glimmer spray.

Rub over with a rich gold paint.

Spray with adhesive and sprinkle with
large flaky glitter

Die Cut bauble with Christmas Bauble die from light weight chipboard.
this way the die will act like an embossing folder.
and the shapes will stay together .
Paint with gesso.

Spray with Red Glimmer mist and rub over
with rich gold paint. 
When dry add to large baubles as shown below.

Handy Hint
Dry brush ends of Christmas branch with 
gesso to resemble snow. Layer over the top 
glitter or Glitzin Glamour for sparkle
