       Step 1. Take a piece of vellum and stamp the baubles onto it using perfect medium or versamark ink pad. As the ink stays moist you can stamp the whole sheet at once. I did 12 medium baubles and 10 small baubles from the bauble and swirl stamp.

     Step 2. Cover with CS frosty dawn embossing powder and heat set.


       Step 3. Once you have heat set the powder colour the baubles. I used CE iridescent shimmering watercolours and CE gilding polishes in shades of blue and purple.

       Step 4. Once they are all coloured, cut them out.

       Step 5. Cut a piece of card to 5.5x5.5 inches and draw two circles onto it, to give a guideline for the wreath.

       Step 6. Stamp a sentiment and some snowflakes in the centre. Use second generation ink for some of the snowflakes by stamping off the paper and then onto your design.

      Step 7. Take the icicle stamp  from the winter scene set and stamp along the top edge of the card. Emboss and heat set.

      Step 8. Place the baubles around the circle and once you are happy with the position glue them down.


       Step 9. Cut a piece of CE foundation card to 12x6 inches and score along the short edge half way, mount your design onto it to make your finished card.
