Many of my Christmas cards this year have been made using various freebies (stamps and or dies) either from this year or previous years and which have been used often in combination with each other or with purchased items.  This is one such card made using a set of dies and stamps designed by Phill Martin which is from this year's selection along with some bows from a set from last year and an embossing folder which I purchased.

The baubles were stamped onto some red card using Versamark ink pad and embossed with fine detail white powder.  The sentiment was done in the same way and then the dies were used to cut out the two baubles and the red oval.  The baubles were then popped onto a background of pearl card embossed to give a nice texture.  Finally two gold bows were die cut and some red gems used to 'suspend' the baubles.
