Card A Day Blog Post: Christmas Ornaments

It's my turn again to post to the Card A Day Blog, this weeks theme is Christmas ornaments. Here is the card that I made for my post.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then added a piece of green card stock  paper cut to 5.25" x 4" to the front of the card. I then added a piece of patterned paper cut to 3.50 x 5.25 to the top of the card stock. 

For my ornament, I cut out the pieces using my Cricut, and the Sure Cuts A Lot program. The file for the ornament came from the Merriment collection, from Lettering Delights. I cut my pieces out of red, green and yellow card stock, then glued them together. To embellish my ornament, I used Thin Lines Dazzles, Red Jewel Sticker Dazzles, and Green Jewel Dazzles,  from Paper Wishes. I adhered the ornament to the left side of my card front. For a little extra sparkle, I added 3 Red Jewel Dazzles to the right side. On the inside, I stamped " Merry Christmas " in green ink.
