Another version using Embellished Ornaments

This is another version of the card I shared yesterday. I've been trying different layouts to find one I will use as my Christmas cards.

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Embellished Ornaments

I saw a card on Cindy Wilkerson's blog that I knew would be my Christmas card this year. I changed it up a bit. I used Cherry Cobbler for the card base and Very Vanilla for the insert and layer on the front. The new corner punch created the accent on the upper right corner. The "branches" were created using the single tree from Lovely as a Tree. Silver foil and cord were also used. The Embellished Ornaments stamp set, Framelits, Red foil paper, and Christmas DSP are included in the October Product kit. Contact me today for more information.

I'll come back here now and then, but please check out my facebook page for the latest information and pictures.
