Crystals in the Snow


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing another Christmas card I made with this month's release by Our Daily Bread designs, "Ornament". I am just in love with this ornament! I love how perfectly it fits the Spellbinder's Heirloom Ornament die and how versatile it is!

I used Midnight Madness Sketch 84 for this layout. If you haven't checked out Midnight Madness this month, you should! All the sketches are up for the whole month and you can make any one as you are able! We had a little snow Sunday here and it was blustery cold all day today, so this made me think of white and sparkle. This is what I came up with. I stamped the ornament in Stazon Silver and colored lightly with Copics. I matted the ornament with two of the same size die cuts from silver that I had left over from another project. This gave just a little depth to the ornament. I used a Cuttlebug ornament embossing folder from the Winter Wonderland Bundle, May Arts Silver ribbon and the dp is ADT Momenta Specialty Collection "Jack Frost". It's a sparkly paper. The base is Martha Stewart and the white is Gina K Pure Luxury. The bling is from Micheal's.
