Christmas Ornaments Card

My local Stampin' Up Demo, Chris Galbraith does a fantastic job.   One of the fun things she does is she puts just a little something as a thank you in my bag with my order when I pick it up.   Last month (or was it the month before) it was a sheet of Designer Series Paper from the Festival of Prints paper stack that's 6 1/2 x 4 1/2.   I had that sheet of paper sitting on my desk for a while and decided to get inspired by it to make a card.   Here's what I came up with.  I actually made three cards using that little sheet of printed paper.   Now I want to make more.   I did have that paper pad in my order that month, so I really aught to get busy. 

The colors in the print are Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  So I pulled those out and a red to coordinate.   I used Raspberry Ripple.   The crumb cake base is stamped with the Stampin' Up Linen background stamp (Crumb Cake ink).  The Very Vanilla layer is embossed using a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  Add a little ribbon to the top of the die cut ornaments and then a pearl in the center medallion of the round ornament.   

The inside is kept simple.   Just a strip of DSP and I used an EK Success border punch for the small scalloped trim.

Stamps: Stampin' Up (Ornament Keepsakes, Linen background)
Ink: Stampin' Up (Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake)
Paper: Stampin' Up (Festival of Prints DSP, cardstock)
Tools: EK Success (border punch), Stampin' Up (ornament die cuts), Cuttlebug (embossing folder)
Accessories: Stampin' Up (Ribbon), pearl


  1. This card just seems so elegant with this color scheme for Christmas. I really like the rounded edges too

  2. You are so sweet! Of course I could give a rumpled up piece of used paper and you would come up with something wonderful to make out of it!!!!! You are amazingly talented! TFS and for the shout out.
