Dazzling Ornament

  Happy Sunday stampers!  I'm sharing a Christmas card that I made a while back and it just kept getting buried in the "to blog about" pile.  While this card looks CAS (clean and simple) there are some details that take a few more steps.

  I had some fun with the Dazzling Diamonds for this card.  First I stamped the ornament in Cherry Cobbler, then planted it face down on one of the multipurpose adhesive sheets and put the backing paper back over it.  Next,  I used the coordinating Framelits dies to cut out the ornament adhesive sheet and all.  Once I had it cut I peeled off the adhesive backing and pressed the whole ornament into my tray of Dazzling Diamonds.  Tapped off any excess glitter and Wow!  Super sparkly!

  Next, I stamped the ornament again in Gumball Green (cleaning off the Cherry Cobbler ink of course) and then cut out just the pattern in the middle of the ornament.  The paper snips were very handy for this portion of the card!  I adhered the pattern to the ornament and then added rhinestones.  I used Cherry Cobbler baker's twine to make the loop.

  For the flag/banner I stamped "Christmas Cheer" from Sweet Essentials and edged the cardstock with the Gumball Green.  This little detail keeps the flag from disappearing into the background.

  I really liked how this card turned out so I made 9 more to add to my Christmas card stash.  I hope you're getting some ideas for your Christmas cards.  It's never too early to start thinking about them; we're already halfway through September! 

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
