Elegant Embossed Ornament

I saw this card on splitcoast and liked the antique elegance of it. This is my creation of the card that inspired me.

Here are the measurements for the card:
Card Base Very Vanilla - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Crumb Cake Layer - 4" x 5 1/4"
Cherry Cobble Layer - 3 3/4" x 5"
Very Vanilla Stamped Layer - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Cherry Cobbler Punched Border Layer - 1 3/4" x 3 3/4"

The very vanilla layer was stamped using the french script background stamp inked with crumb cake and then stamped with baroque motifs inked with cherry cobbler. I sponged all the edges with crumb cake and adhered this layer to the cherry cobbler layer and then added the cherry cobbler punched border and attached vanilla satin ribbon around the punched border piece. This layer was attached to the crumb cake layer and then adhered to the very vanilla card base. The ornament was inked with versa mark ink and then cherry cobbler ink and stamped on very vanilla card stock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Using the ornament punch the image was punched out and adhered to the card with tombow adhesive. The ornament hanger was drawn with an Atyou Spica gold glitter pen and then the gold bow and pearls were attached.

Supplies Used: Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake; Ink: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Versa Mark; Stamps: French Script, Baroque Motifs, Tags 'Til Christmas; Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Fleur-Di-Lis Border Punch, Ornament Punch, Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Gold Satin Ribbon, Atyou Spica Gold Glitter Pen, Tombow Adhesive, Half Pearls, Mini Glue Dots
