Just Ornaments


I had a few more Christmas cards to make and wanted to keep things fairly simple. I used the same stamps and layout for these two cards but changed the ribbon, paper and inks.
The following are the measurements for the card stock layers:
Ornament Panel - 4 1/4" x 3"
First Layer - 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Second Layer - 4 1/4" x 4" (after punching border)
Card Base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

In order to make sure the stamped images were straight I used my stamp-a-ma-jig (love that thing) and stamped from left to right. For the embossed ornaments I stamped the images with versa mark ink and embossed each one before adding the next one. Be sure to use your embossing buddy so that the embossing powder only sticks to the inked areas. If you wanted to "step it up" you could add rhinestones or pearls to the ornaments.

Supplies Used: Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Brushed Silver, Brushed Gold; Ink: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Black, Versa Mark; Stamps: Tree Trimmings; Other: Gold and Silver Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Fleur-De-Lis Border Punch, Frost White Shimmer Mist (Green Ornament Card)
