Delightful Ornament

This card was the one that I created for a Christmas 10 4 $10 held back in November. I liked it so much that I used it for most of my own Christmas cards this year.

The card starts out with a base of Confetti Cream card stock. It's hard to see in this photo but the upper half of the card which is Baroque Burgundy, has been run through the Big Shot in the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. It is attached to the card base along with a strip of Always Artichoke. A 5/8" strip of Kraft CS is stamped with the Sanded background stamp inked with Sahara Sand ink.

Stamp the ornament in Baroque Burgundy ink and punch out with Ornament Punch. Wrap a snippet of silver cord around "neck" of ornament and tape to the back. Tape another snippet of cord to the back and attach the other end to the back of the Confetti Cream mat with tape. Attach this to Always Artichoke and then Craft. Attach to card front with dimensionals if desired, otherwise use the double sided adhesive. Stamp "Christmas Greetings" on the card front with Chocolate Chip ink.

Stamp Sets: Delightful Decorations, Grateful Greetings (both from Holiday Mini Catalog), Sanded (for Kraft strip)
Paper: Baroque Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Kraft, Confetti Cream
Ink: Baroque Burgundy, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Ornament Punch, Petals a Plenty embossing folder, silver cord, silver brad, 1/6" handheld punch, Big Shot
