Christmas cards

How cute do these look ?? I've just finished playing with some Heidi Grace papers and my brand new Christmas Bauble lasercuts to create these non-traditional Christmas cards.

Each bauble was coloured by pouncing a chalk ink pad over the top. Then, to give it some shine, I did the same with my Versamark pad, coated them with some clear embossing powder and then heated the embossing powder to melt.

** Note: when heat embossing lasercuts (particularly fine detailed ones such as this) TAKE CARE not to overheat. Because the edges have already been burned during the cutting process you will find that those areas begin to smoke. If you overheat it may catch alight.
