Festive Baubles

We had our usual craft night last night, this week we all played with heat embossing, using a set of magazine freebie stamps, which match my Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments dies.  Here's what I came up with.
 I used red, hammered, metallic card for the baubles, and embossed with three different powders, then die cut the shapes with the matching dies.  The snowflake mat was created with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set, then it was just a mat and layer job, using foam pads to raise the base layer from the card, and to raise the baubles up, to give depth to an otherwise simple card.  I used some nice, chunky baker's twine to "hang" my decorations, embellishing with bows, and I finished my card with pearls.
