Ornament Christmas Card

It's my turn once again to post on the Card A Day Blog. The theme for this week is Christmas ornaments, and here is the card I created.

The materials I used for my card are:

  • Ornament, cut out from my Cricut and using the Sure Cuts A Lot program.
  • 8.5 x 5.5 inch piece of white card stock, folded in half for card base.
  • 5.24 x 4 inch background paper from the Cloud 9 Design Seasonal Paper Stack
  • Bow made out of yellow organdy ribbon, using a Bow Easy to create it.
  • Color Box Petal Point pigment ink, dark green petal pad.
  • Foam Squares
  • Viva Decor Pearl Pen, gold
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities Beaded Oval Dies
  • Cuttlebug

To create my card, I started by adding my background paper to my card base, then after inking my oval die cut, I attached it to my card base. I then glued together my ornament front to the back, and I applied it on top of the oval with foam squares. Then using my Viva Decor Pearl Pen, I applied dots around the oval, and in various places on the ornament. After making a bow with my Bow Easy, and ribbon, I applied it to the top of the ornament. I stamped the inside of the card with a greeting. 

Thanks for checking out my car, and please let me know what you think of my card, by leaving me a comment.

Latest Operation Write Home Christmas Cards

Time is quickly closing in on the deadline for sending Christmas cards for Operation Write Home. Here are the latest cards that I have created, and I will be sending them off next week. I hope to get a few more whipped up before then, and if I do, I will try to post them as well.

This first card I made using the Spellbinders Die, Holly Motifs, That I purchased at Stamping Scrapping, one of my favorite online stores, where I find myself getting into more trouble than I!

These next three cards, I made using one of the Spellbinder Dies, Lacey Circles, and stamps from the Just Rite stamp collection, Holiday Cheer Set, also purchased from Stamping Scrapping. I thought these were just the cutest little dies, I just had to have them.  

Next up are cards I made with stamps from another one of my favorite online stores, Outlines Rubber Stamps. I just love these stamps, and often find myself getting into a bit of trouble when I visit there! I guess I love!

After I am done with Christmas cards, I will be starting on Valentine's Day cards. I can already feel the!
