Embellished Ornaments Merry Christmas Cards
I'm loving this year's fun Christmas color palette that includes a variety of bright & cheery greens! In this case, I used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper to determine the combination of Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler! It's a fun, fresh look that is so trendy for the holiday season!
Buy 3 Designer Papers, Get 1 FREE—Presents & Pinecones DSP is included in this month's Designer Series Paper Special! Don't forget to stock up on all your favorite DSP by October 31!
Background Basics—This card starts with a 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" piece of the Mint Macaron pattern of Presents & Pinecones DSP layered onto a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. It's mounted onto a Whisper White card base.
I created another popped up layer with a 2-3/8" x 3-7/8" piece of striped Presents & Pinecones paper on a 2-1/2" x 4" piece of Cherry Cobbler.
Ornament—I stamped the longer Embellished Ornament image in Emerald Envy onto Whisper White card stock, then die cut it with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits. It's popped up with Dimensionals, then decorated with a single Rhinestone Jewel in the center. I also added a couple Rhinestones on the bottom right of the striped layer.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a sentiment from Star of Light in Cherry Cobbler onto a 3-1/4" x 1/2" strip of Whisper White, then fishtailed the ends and used SNAIL to adhere it to the ornament.
Finishing Touch—I added a beautiful Cherry Cobbler bow from the 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon Combo Pack with a Glue Dot. I LOVE the texture of that ribbon! So easy to tie, too!
Mailing TIP: If you are wanting to mail this card, you may need to cut one of the popped up layers, or replace the bow with twine.
Two Cool—My second card is a horizontal version using the other ornament from the Embellished Ornaments set. This time, I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler and topped it with the Emerald Envy taffeta ribbon.
The sentiment is stamped in Emerald Envy over to one side, fishtailed on that side and tucked under the ornament.
