Hello and welcome...
Never work with children or animals.... or mirri card!! lol

I have spent longer attempting to get a decent photograph of this card, that wasn't showing me in the background, than it took to make the darned thing!

If you want to click on the photograph you may see the lovely detail on the baubles

As previously said, a quick card to make, the embossing folder, by Crafter's Companion, does all the work (the mirri card doesn't lol)

I cut gold mirri to an 8" square that was also the same size as the embossing folder, and ran it through my Spellbinders's Platinum Machine.  I adhered this to a slightly bigger black card base

The finishing touches were to add a black gem to the ribbons of each bauble and to die cut and emboss the sentiment (Creative Expressions) in black card and gold mirri

A verse is yet to be added, providing I can bring myself to engage with said card at a later date!  lol

Look forward to seeing you back tomorrow for our Saturday Special Give-Away Card and I can assure you not one little dot of mirri will be featured :)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope my designs have given a little inspiration.
I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message.
