A New Combination....for me !!!

 Morning all, hope you are all enjoying this May Bank Holiday Monday.

It's another Christmas card made, but this time a new combination. I thought I would combine beads with iris folding. Whenever I've done iris folding I've always been at a lost at to what to put around the edge of the iris folding. Then I had an eureka moment and decided to add beads. I had a pattern that was quite small, so I enlarged the pattern on my photocopier so that the smallest circle was just a tad bit bigger than my aperture (for the iris folding).

I have kept the colour palette simple with golds, creams and whites.

Hazel has asked where I get the patterns from. I buy them from "Annspaperart" and "creatiefzijnmet" which is a dutch company. Also you can buy patterns from "The art of craft" which is in this country. Hope that helps Hazel.

I made the top of the bauble out of gold mirri card and scored lines on it.

See you again soon, and thanks for stopping by. x
