Sparkling Christmas Ornament

It's time for another Christmas card.  I now have almost enough cards.  I am going into 3 Christmas Bazaars in November so have been stocking up.  I think I am almost done and hopefully I will have enough or I will be burning the midnight oil to stock up again after each Bazaar.

Oh happy times

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes (c – 128051, w – 128048, p. 3 2012 Holiday Catalogue), Greetings of the Season (c - 128033, w- 128030 p.8 p. 3 2012 Holiday Catalogue), En Fran├žais (w – 109521, p. 129 2012/13 Annual Catalogue)
Paper: Very Vanilla, Naturals White, Early Espresso
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Collection Framelit Dies, Adhesive Sheets, Dazzling Diamonds, Decorative Label Punch, Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon (retired) 

The Very Vanilla panel was stamped with the En Francais background stamp using Crumb Cake as I wanted it to provide a subtle background to the focal point, the ornament.

The Ornament framelit that matches the stamp was used to cut out the center of the Very Vanilla panel to allow the Early Espresso card stock to show and provide a contrast to the ornament.  The dazzling ornament has been offset a bit so that it appears to be 3-D.

Don't forget, to sign up for my emails if you want to get in on the rest of the 12 Week of Christmas newsletter.  There are still 7 to go.  Unfortunately, I am not able to go back and resend the issues that you have missed.

Is your paper crafting wish list bigger than your bank account?

Do you live in an area where you don't have access to a stamping club?
