Pretty Pastel Keepsake Ornaments

Hey Stampers,

As I haven't had any time to put any Christmas decorations up yet (I am going to start on my day off tomorrow), I have been getting into the Christmas mood by listening to a LOT of Christmas music and making more cards !! LOL With all of the Christmas crafting, you can get sick or Red and Green PRETTY quickly. So, I also love making Christmas stuff with some more out there color choices. My card today uses some pretty pastel colors; a color combo of Pretty In Pink, Wisteria Wonder, pool Party and Silver !! LOVE ow it turned out too !! Have a look !!

Doesn't that just jump out at you !! Against a backdrop of all the other red and green cards someone will receive, that will just pop !! And the sparkly silver is just too gorgeous !! I picked 3 of the larger ornament images from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set, and stamped them in my pretty colors. Then I ran them through my Big Shot and die cut them with the Holiday Ornaments framelits. Beautiful !! My main layer is some of the yummy Brushed Silver cardstock ... it's hard to tell from the picture, but it really shimmers !! I embossed the sentiment from the Delightful Dozen stamp set in White Embossing Powder using my VersaMark and Heat Tool. Love how elegant the scripty font is !!

The ornaments here have 3 different degrees of dimension (LOL). The Pretty In Pink one is stuck down using snail, the Pool Party one has dimensionals and the Wisteria Wonder ornament uses 2 layers of dimensionals !! Really nice and 3D looking. Before I added my ornaments though, I attached my 3/8" Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. Love that stuff !! For my "ornament hooks" I used some thin strips of the Silver Glimmer Paper. Really adds some fun sparkle ! Some Basic rhinestones added to the Wisteria Wonder ornament completed the "bling trifecta" making this card super sparkly !! All of this got put onto a Wisteria Wonder card base and then it was finished. Lots of elements but essentially a simple card to create!

Thanks for dropping by today !! Maybe you can try to think "outside the box" in the color department for some of the Christmas cards you make this year ! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
