Christmas Ornament Card

As promised here is the card I made yesterday. The card base is 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" made from white card stock. I have a pink mat cut at 5 1/4" X 5 1/4". The glittery patterned paper is cut at 5" X 5" and is from a paper stack I bought last Christmas, I think it was called Peppermint Forest.

The ornament was cut at 3 1/2" from the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge. I cat all the layers. I cut the little hook at the top of the ornament from white card stock. I used a clear embossing pad to get the paper wet and then added some silver metallic embossing powder by Zing. I heated the embossing powder to the the silvery metallic look. I then glued it to the top of the ornament. The pink striped trim I ran through my Xyron sticker maker and added some Sugar Cube glitter by Martha Stewart. I did the same thing to the little white star in the middle of the ornament.  I mounted the ornament to the card front using some foam tape. I added a ribbon again something leftover from last Christmas.

I didn't have a stamp for the sentiment that would fit the space I had so I printed my own on my computer. I believe this was printed at 22 pts. I apologize, I don't remember the name of the font. I think it was Brush Script.  I used Lacy Labels to cut the scalloped oval. I used the Center Point feature on my expression to cut the sentiment out at 1". I then cut the scallop again at 1.15" using my Gypsy to get the shadow. I also adhered this with foam tape.

It feels good to have the energy to start crafting again. Thanks for visiting.
