A Christmas Ornament

Today I have an easy card for you.  I used only embossing folders and dies.  This is a 5 1/2" square card.  For the background I used  the Marianne Designs embossing folder (DS0908) on the right side and the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder on the left side.  The pretty ornament is one of the new Marianne Designs ornaments (LR0184).  These ornaments come two to a package.  It was die cut using a silver glitter paper.  For the background I used the same die but just put it through the Vegabond  using the embossing pad.  I didn't want to cut it out because I wanted a solid ornament.  Scissors were used to cut around the outside edge then the two pieces were glued together.  A perfect way to create a sparkly design on the burgundy ornament!

The pine branch was created using the Marianne Designs "Pine Branch" (LR018).  It was die cut and diamond glitter added to the needles.  The lamp post is the largest of the Cheery Lynn "Colonial Lamp posts" (B130).  A small piece of yellow card stock was placed behind the light and cut out to fit just the light.  A "Quickie Glue" pen was used to add some glue just to the yellow and super fine yellow glitter was sprinkled on.  The background was layered over a piece of burgundy card stock and added to the card.  The die cuts were arranged as shown and a small burgundy silk bow was added.

I want to let you know that tomorrow the new Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge begins.  You won't want to miss it.  Joan will be giving out some prizes to kick off the new season. 

As you know all the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.




This is such a lovely use of the dies! Just a beautiful card. Outstanding!
