Hello, hello!!! Hope your week has jumped off to a good start!!! Things are little less stressful around here now that my DH is doing so much better (thank you for your prayers). Now that I've been in my new place for a week I think I know where and how I want my craft corner to be. So I have a mess again :) but that's all good amidst the mess are a few scraps I was able to put to good use.
With stores all decked out with christmas ornaments and all the seasonal holiday fragrances filling the air in department stores I just new I had to create a card. This one in particular was inspired by my trip to Target last night (have I mentioned how much I love that store). Anyhow, have you seen all those glass ornaments. They are so pretty and delicate and fancy and everything that appeals to a girly, girl like me.
So, once I got home and found some spare time, I ran to my craft room (well soon to be) and began to look through the piles of scraps I've been hoarding for ages and found a few pieces that made me think of just that, christmas ornaments. Then to embellish it I used again none traditional christmas item (except for the sentiment). The stamps I used are in fact stamps I bought a while back for spring cards. It turned out to be money well spent ;) and there ya have it a fancy christmas ornament card.
To create this one I used my oval nestabilites die, a stamp for background, double sided tape for extra fine glitter, and some rhinestones. You can even use your favorite pp for this one ;) A very simple ornament to embellish your christmas cards or to create for gifts. I have two girlfriends who love making cards but just don't have time to get crafty so I'll be making a few of these for them to add to there projects in a quickie. You can finish your ornament off with string, wire or like in my case some extra fancy ribbon for a more elegant touch.
Have you made any christmas embellies lately?!? I'd love to see some. If not, hopefully this will inspire you to create some. I know you can :)
Have a lovely evening!!
