Hello! Ornaments are a classic, holiday icon. The Queen & Co. Holiday Wishes Kitwhich features 6 different ornament shaker die shapes, loads of adorable shaker toppings, festive paper pad, and stamp set filled with sentiments.
My first card uses 3 pattern papers from the Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad. They were layered over a white notecard. My ornament shaker was created with adding the red/white candy toppings from the kit and finishing it off with a silver topper and twine bow.
The stamp set included in the kit has many sentiments that can be stamped for a sentiment banner. This is one of my favorite ways to add a sentiment! To embellish, a few white Rubber Bubbles were added.
My second card is more interactive and features a "hanging" ornament through an opening in the front of the card. I created my ornament with pattern paper from the Merry & Bright 6x6 paper pad so that when the card opens, both sides are "finished". The ornament is more of a chipboard type element. I die cut many ornaments and glued them together.
To create the notecard, a standard circle was die cut from both a white panel and the notecard itself. This way I could string the ornament from the top and sandwich the ends between the layers for a finished look. After adding a few score lines and a stamped sentiment, I lined the inside of the card with the fun retro striped paper.
