Glamorous Kanban glittered bauble Christmas cards

I made these three Christmas cards from a single Kanban background card sheet, featuring a selection of ornate gorgeously glittered baubles, teamed with some bright red glitter card and papers from Kanban's Cosmo Christmas & Deck the Halls paper pads. The middle card is a 10 x 7 inch card, the other two are 8 x 8 inch square (corners rounded with a corner chomper).
The Festive Baubles card is so stunning, I felt it deserved to take centre stage rather than remaining in the background. I cut out the three sets of baubles and mounted them using silicone adhesive to add a bit of dimension. I finished the cards with ribbon, Craftwork Cards card candi and sentiments mounted onto rosettes, cut from gold mirri card using a Tim Holtz die.
The Festive Baubles printed & glittered card sheet that I used to make all three cards is pictured below:

Really inspiring AND encouraging - I was going to make Xmas cards every 25th month - ha, I was - haven't and will suffer greatly for it in lead up to Xmas!

Thanks Shirl - I need to get a wiggle on with my Christmas cards too, it's fast approaching, isn't it!
