12 Days of Embellished Ornaments: #5

Day 5 of my Embellished Ornaments set sampler!


You know those cards you think will be a breeze and so easy until you make one?  Yeah, this was one of those cards!  I was inspired by Shari Carroll’s card below, which was die cut:


I adopted her color palette of browns and greens, which I loved.  I used all Stampin’ Up colors and supplies of course – Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso with bits of gold glimmer paper.

I think this card ended up taking me an hour BUT i do love it!  For the round ornament, I punched a 1-3/4″ vanilla circle punch to go behind it.  The little vanilla ornament I punched with a 1-1/4″ circle punch.

I used some gold cord and linen thread to hang the ornaments and also the wooden snowflake embellishments.

   After it was all done I thought I’d never do it again but now that the arrangement is done, I can see making up more of them.

The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso Ink and is from the Wonderland stamp set but anything long and skinny can go up there on the strip of vanilla.

I’ll have to mail it in a padded mailer since the wooden ornaments and buttons are bulky.

Here’s my basic supply list:

I’ll take off tomorrow but will be back with #6 on Monday!

Hope you find time to Stamp Something!
