Red pearls used to make Holly & Berry Christmas Card

October 19th, 2011

Hi Everybody

Wanted to show you all these  gorgeous new red mixed pearls which I absolutely love. I find it hard to buy bigger size red pearls, so these pearls are ideal as berries for holly cards and because they come in different sizes they look more realistic when you mix them up. Also if you look closely you’ll see that they have a beautiful sheen to them much better than a simple matt finish.

This week we have a fantastic offer on these, SAVE OVER 30% on mixed size red self adhesive pearls.

I had this Christmas card idea in my mind over the weekend, so I have managed to find time today to make the card. I bought a Sizzix Die from Craftbug to make my holly leaves, it also comes with a pretty swirl pattern as well. The design is called Sizzix Bigz Die – Flourish, Holly & Mistletoe.

Instead of using all the same size pearls I’ve used different sized self adhesive red pearls to give a much better and realistic effect. The ribbon I’ve used is red grosgrain ribbon which is 7mm wide I’ve stuck the ribbon down randomly to create a nice pattern.

I’ve stuck some small green stick on gems on either end of my ‘Merry Christmas’ banner I think it finishes it off  really nice.
