I found a snippet of textured, dark green paper (not black as it looks here) and embossed the Woodware baubles on it ion silver. I drew on the strings and coloured them with a silver gel pen. I did use a ruler as a guide as I've tried this before and found that my baubles were hanging at a strange angle.
I decided to try some dry embossing with a board which I have not done for ages. I think it gives a smart, elegant look.
I added a snippet of silver ribbon with just a knot instead of a bow. I haven't any idea if a a man would like this but I like it. I'll ask if one passes.
So having used a couple of snipppets, I can skip over to the snippets playground and have a go on the swings. I haven't managed to get there for a few weeks. And in true Di style, I have enough green paper left so I'm making another card the same!
Now I'm off to tidy my room as I've left card, trimmer and stuff all over my bed and then a gin and tonic as a Thursday night treat.
