Ornament Cards

>> Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Hi Everyone!
Jennifer blogging here for you today to share a few Christmas cards I made.  I was bound and determined to use some of the many vellum sheets I have.  I guess you could say I challenged myself to use it and here are the results: 

These aren't your typical cards.  The card base doesn't have a fold.  Instead, lifting the vellum and the white cardstock (stamped with the Silent Night Sheet Music (506P) ) allows you ample space to write a personal message to the recipient on the colored cardstock located underneath. I used the same style for both of these Ornament cards, but changed up the colors a little bit. I can't decide which one I like better!  Here's a close up of the red and gold one.

  With a CAS design, these cards are great for mass producing.  Other than cutting all the cardstock and vellum, basically this card was just a few basic steps.  First, I heat embossed the Christmas Ornament Greeting (844K) on the vellum. Then, the Silent Night Sheet Music (506P) was stamped using red ink on the white cardstock layer.  A brad was then added at the top of the ornament to make it look like it was hanging, and it's what holds all of the layers together.  The final touch was to add a red ribbon tied in a bow to decorate the top of each card and then adhere all of the layers to a piece of cardstock that measures 4.25" x 5.5".  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

Thanks for stopping by!
