3D Baubles

It was our usual crafty night last night, and after tea and date and walnut rock cakes, we all made cards using multiple die cuts, folded to make dimensional toppers.  I used bauble dies for mine, but others had great results with tree and star dies too.
 I used two Embossalicious folders to add texture to some red metallic card and some soft gold pearl card, which I matted onto dark green on a DL card blank.  I must get into the habit of making more DL cards, I think they look nice and elegant.
the baubles were cut with Spellbinders dies, each one cut five times and glued together, from Crafts House, Plum Pudding papers, which have a beautiful pearl finish.  I used baker's twine to "hang" my decorations, and embellished with Papermania bows and red gems.
The finishing touch was a sentiment stamped with a Papermania stamp on kraft card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
