Embellished Ornaments

Ornament CASAre you looking for a super simple Christmas card?  If you are someone who makes a lot Christmas cards and are looking for a cool card…here it is!  One of the things I love about this card is that you can make it in ANY color combination and it will work.  There is something about pink Christmas cards that I just LOVE and so this is what I came up with.  We did this at a monthly meeting I have with a great group of women!

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pink Pirouette – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp greeting using Versamark and silver emboss
  • Cut out ornament form Silver Foil, cut out top from Silver Foil.  Add thin slivers of dimensionals behind ornament and add to card front.  Add ornament top to ornament, add Gold cording trim through ornament top and secure on back of panel.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals.

Yep…that’s the entire card!  LOL!!!
