Today I made a Christmas ornament card. I was inspired by the Colour of Hues #3 theme to use cream and gold on your card.
Seems I’ve slightly over exposed my photos on this grey Melbourne day so my cream looks a bit white. Think I need to invest in a photo box or a better overhead light.
I watched a Jennifer MacGuire video the other day, where she made a card with an ornamnet on the belly band. I loved that idea and just received a new Stampin Up order which included the ‘Dove of Hope’ stamp set and matching dies that I knew would be perfect for this technique. I also used a panel of the ‘Plush Poinsettia’ DSP which I coloured some of the flowers with my gold marker. I die cut the dove components about 6 times for each piece to give them enough depth to be able to hang properly on the tree.
I loved how this looked so made another one but used a differnt looking panel of the DSP which I coloured with red.
When I post these cards, I think I’ll need to use a padded bag to look after the ornament.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
