Tutorial for Christmas bauble card

For all of you (that actually read my blog) that are in need of some inspiration for Christmas card ideas-here is a lovely card that I recently cased from somewhere (I can't quite recall where) but I have seen a few variations on this idea
Project Recipe:
Stamp sets: Peaceful Wishes, Short and Sweet
Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou,
Paper: Soft sky, Blue Bayou, white
Acessories: Stamping Sponges,2-way glue pen, dazzling diamonds (glittery sunstance) silver pen, snail adhesive, 1 1/4 inch circle punch
Technique: Reverse Masking

Measurements of card:
White front piece-8x12cm
Blue Bayou backing 8 1/2 cm x 12 1/2 cm
Soft Sky card 21cm x 15 cm, folded in half

Step 1: Using the circle punch, cut out 3 circles from a piece of card to form a template (make sure the template is the same size as the piece of card that will make the front of the card)(8cmX12cm is what I used.

Step 2: Place the template where you want the baubles to be situated on your card. Using Soft sky ink, sponge over the template until you have covered the area well. Keeping the template in place, stamp the image using the Peaceful Wishes stamp, also in Soft Sky ink.

Step 3: Go over the stamped image with the 2-way glue pen. Sprinkle the dazzling diamonds dust onto this, and shake off any excess. Then simply add the sentiment(using Blue Bayou ink), and also the bauble strings (using a silver pen). I have also added a little more interest by stamping randomly (using Soft Sky ink) on the soft sky card.

Step 4: Finally, mount the card pieces together-and wha-la you have made a lovely Christmas card.
