Hi there crafty friends!

Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards I created with Queen & Company’s new Merry & Bright Ornament Shaker Kit.  The kit includes SIX ornament dies with an assortment of seven ornament tops, tiny toppings of snowmen, candy canes, green and red peppermints, gingerbread, several assortments of pearls (my personal favorite), an adorable holiday paper pad and holiday sentiment stamp set!  SO much fun!
 
 
On my first card, I used two of the ornament dies, simply die-cutting the shapes from white card stock. I adore the detail of snowflakes in the round ornament. They’re so small and delicate! Inside, I placed an assortment of pastel pearls.
 
 
To add a bit of interest around the ornaments, I adhered the negative die-cut circles from the top of the ornament and ornament top dies.  I think they make a perfect little accent! The ornaments were tied at the top with blue stretchy string. To complete my card, I stamped the sentiment in white pigment ink then white/heat embossed.
 
 
 
Next I created a clean and simple card using one ornament die with an assortment of patterned papers and silver foil card stock for the tops. I filled the shaker ornament with bright pearls and tied/hung the ornaments with silver cord.
 
 
As on my first card, I used the negative space from the ornament and ornament top dies to create small faux metal accents. I especially like the look of the dots cut from foil card stock.
 
 
My cards were so much fun to create! I think the recipients will enjoy them as well!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
