Delightful Decorations Ornament Card

This is the card I made for the Card Swap at the Stamp Share yesterday. I think the layout is from one of the Card Sketches from SplitCoastStampers a while back. If not then it's an original!!! Doubt that though!!

The background is Very Vanilla layered on top of Real Red card stock. The patterned paper is from the Stampin' up! "Merry Moments" designer paper package. I wasn't sure about mixing the stripes with the snowflakes and dots paper but it worked. I think it was because the colors all go together or maybe I just caught a break on that one!! I really liked both papers and wanted them go together on the card SO much.

This card had a lot of pieces to it but it was SO worth it. The bulb is from the "Delightful Decorations" set and I punched it out with the "Ornament" punch. Such a great idea Stampin' Up! had making that punch! I LOVE it and it sure makes me want to use that set more because I don't have to cut the bulbs out by hand!!

I stamped my bulb using Real Red craft ink and embossed it using clear embossing powder. I made two ornaments and on the second one I punched out a 1" circle. I added a brad to the center and taped it in place on the bulb using a Dimensional. I added a dot of Crystal Effects and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the top of it. I wanted the center to have a little sparkle to it.

I would like to use this for our Christmas card this year but the ribbon would make the card cost more to mail. And with as many cards as I mail out it's just not economically feasible.

I thought it was a fun card to make. All 17 of them! 15 to swap, one for the display board and one for me! And I do like the colors, it's a very festive looking card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
