Hi there! I hadn’t used my Ornament Keepsakes stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog so I inked that up for this Christmas card, featuring the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper. The paper coordinates with Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla so those are the main colors I used, but I also added in some Certainly Celery which I picked up from the polka dotted pattern. After I’d already glued the patterned papers down, I wished I had put the polka dotted paper in front but too late! There is also a bit of glitter on the main image – I used my Two-Way Glue Pen to apply dots within the ornament’s design and then put some of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter on it before the glue dried! So pretty in real life – sorry you can’t see it in the picture very well. Also I attached the tiny sentiment with a Vintage Trinket safety pin – I’ve had them for a while but I’ve used the brads and not the pins…gotta use the pins more as I LOVE the look on this card! I pinned it through the seam binding ribbon, which is my favorite ribbon to tie into a bow – very easy to manipulate and not heavy so this card should still be mailable. However, the number of layers on this card might make it over the weight limit!!! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed my first challenge card I’ve done since having a blog. Combining so many challenges, really forced me to stretch my creativity and I LOVED it!!! But I didn’t get my Tool Time Thursday video done yet so I’ll work on that!
