Hello everyone! Hope you have been enjoying a wonderful week! Here in NC fall has suddenly bloomed in all it's glory! This is my favorite time of year here! However, when fall comes, Christmas is right around the corner! While I hate walking into stores in Aug. and Sept and seeing Christmas things out already, for us card makers, we DO need to start early if we make all our own cards! LOL! So I have another Christmas card for you today, made with this month's wonderful set from Our Daily Bread designs, Holiday Ornaments. It is made to fit the Spellbinder's Holiday Tags. I love using my Grand Calibur for things like this because all can be cut at the same time! I used three of the four designs and embossed them in gold on Papertrey Vintage Cream. I used Brilliance Galaxy Gold to lightly ink the edges, and I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the background. I mated that with Recollections brushed gold and basic black and mounted on a cream base. I punched two Martha Stewart holly edges from black and tied gold cording on to the tops of the ornaments.
I love quick cards for Christmas because there's always so much to do, and this was pretty quick, no coloring and no designer paper to match up. Hope you like it!
