Ornament Keepsake

Okay…so two very different things came together for this ‘contemporary’ card this morning!  First was the color challenge on SCS today…Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Pear Pizzazz (I used Certainly Celery…just a little lighter).  Second was looking through the website of a stamper (N@ Ali) who has such a fun, clean style (very graphic!) and finding this fun layout.  You can see her card here.  So you put those two things together and this is what I got!

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White.  I added strips of Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Certainly Celery.  Nest I stamped the ornament three times…two in Gumball Green and one in Tempting Turquoise, cut out using the Holiday Ornament framelit, then cut out the different stripes and layered them.  I punched a 1/1 4″ Silver Glimmer Scallop Circle, a 1″ Gumball Green circle, stamped the greeting in versamark and silver embossed, punched with 3/4″ circle, layered and added using a dimensional.  I drew a silver line with my silver glimmer pen and added the ornament using dimensinoals,  Next I made a ‘bow’ (click tutorial tab above) using Certainly Celery 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and a Silver Brad and added to the card front.  To add a little dazzle…I punched out one 3/4″ Silver Glimmer circle and three 1/2″ Silver Glimmer Circles and added to the card front.  So that’ my different little Christmas card.  Want to see a more ‘traditional’ one that I posted today with this same set?  Click here.

Mixed Medley

Happy SUO challenge day!  It is always fun to see what the challenge is going to be.  This time, our theme is CAS Christmas cards.  And you know me…that is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!!!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White, piercing the ornament shape, layered onto Basic Black then to the card front using dimensionals.  Next I used the ornament framelit and cut out another ornament, ran it through the  Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder.  I made a ‘bow’ (click on the tutorial link above to access my tutorial) using Whisper White Organza ribbon and a Black Neutral Glimmer brad then added to the panel.  Then added the panel using dimensionals.  I punched a 1 1/4″ Silver Glimmer Scallop Circle, a 1″ Basic Black Circle, then embossed the greeting and punched using the 3/4″ Circle Punch.  These were added to the card front.
