Simple Ornament Holiday Card

Ornament

Happy Monday stampers! I am excited to share this card with you today…I'm not known as the girl that makes simple cards, actually it's not uncommon for me to create a card that has about 9 layers to it! I had seen this neat frame idea around the web and wanted to give it a whirl…so I made one myself and then it sat on my stamp table for about a week waiting for me to do something with it. While I was organizing the other day, I went to stack up my holiday stamps and instantly spotted the ornament in the Christmas Classics set and knew that's what I would put in my "frame".

I created the miniature bow by coloring some of my Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon with a marker, then I cut a thin strand from it, carefully snipping away any frayed edges. I also added some mini rhinestone brads for a little dimension.

I also added a little glitter pen to it, and rubbed the glitter around before it dried. I think the Champagne Shimmer Paint would work well for this too!

I'm pleased with the way this turned out, I hope it comes across nicely in the picture! I may have to try the simple route on my cards for a while and see what different things I can come up with…who am I kidding??? I can't keep away from all of those layers…I'll give it a shot once in a while;)

Thanks for stopping by!
