A Merry Little Christmas

I'm back from a much needed vacation and ready to start posting again!  Here is another simple Christmas greeting using more dies from the Poppystamps newest release.  The more I play with these wonderful dies, the more I love them!

I cut apart the Diamond Background die so that I’d have two rows of diamonds for a delicate border at the top.  I used the Lovely Tendril die on gold cardstock and adhered that to the card front.  The Clarissa Ornament Outline and Background  pieces were cut from  dark blue cardstock and I layered them for an embossed look.  I then threaded some gold twine through two gold jingle bells, and tied it around the top of the ornament.  I used the Pine Sprigs die to cut three sprigs, one light green, one darker green and one gold, and gathered them behind the ornament, then used mounting tape, adhered the ornament ensemble over the gold tendril.  I used a glitter brush to add highlights to the leaves on the ornament and on the border.  The “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” stamp was the perfect touch to finish the card.   

This is one of three cards we will be making in my upcoming classes at Ultimate Hobbies on Wednesday, October 30th, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Hope you enjoy, and so glad you stopped by!



I love love gold!!!! Is a fantastic card :)
