Christmas Ornaments

Here's a trio of cards using the Delightful Decorations stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. There's a ornament punch, too so no more hand cutting these "guys".

This is the first card: inspired by a fellow demonstrator (regretfully, I didn't get her name at the from the Open House event). The Snowfall Window Sheets were fun to "play" with. Love the concept of using the paperclip for an ornament hanger. The message is also from the Holiday Mini: Four the Holidays stamp set.Love the Rhinestone Brad in the center of the left ornament. Pop those ornaments with dimensionals.

Here's another version from Sharon: The ornament and edges of the Real Red CS has touches of the new shimmer paint (also in the Holiday Mini). The message "ends" were created using the new Ornament Punch.

Here's my version made for a past swap. Use the Boho Blossoms Punch for the "center" of the ornaments (which are the same stamp used for the background).

Things needed to make this card: (for this photo, the message was changed to be using Versamark with white embossing powder)

Here's how to use the paper clip for the ornament hanger. Use an entire paper clip or cut one in half (as shown). Use dimensionals, attach to card.

LOOK at all these ornaments!
