Bauble Card

Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be
Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee
That Monday evening you would still be here with me.

Sorry, for some reason I woke up thinking about this song and just had to share!

Today I have a Cas card for challenge #2 at Addicted to CAS!

For my card I chose to cut a 3d ornament out with my Cameo using a Silhouette Studio cut file.

After cutting out all the ornament pieces and glueing them together I ungrouped the selected shapes in the Silhoutte program and removed all but one ornament piece. Then I removed the dashed lines from the middle of the ornament so all I had left was the shape. I enlarged it and then cut it out of white card stock so I could use the negative image for the front of my card.

I cut that piece 4" X 5 3/4" and used a paper piercing tool to poke the dots all around the edge.
I added a piece of bakers twine through a hole at the top and under the top of the ornament. Stamped my sentiment on the card stock and used Pop Dots to attach it to my 4 1/4" X 6" card base.

I tied another piece of twine around the top of my 3D ornament and glued it in the middle of my negative space. Then added a little pearl at the bottom.

Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned paper - Christmas Toile Collection II by Flair; Silhouette Studio cut file; twine - Candy Cane by Trendy Twine; pearl - Hero Arts; paper piercing tool - Bazzill; stamp - Studio G: ink Tuxedo Black by Memento; Pop Dots.
