Christmas Ornaments

The Sketch used for my Christmas Card was Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #135, changing the sketch from landscape to portrait.  


Using one of the Design Papers from "White Pine" and choosing the Ornament die-cut from Cricut Design Space was cut for the focal point of the card, added red glitter paper to the back of some of the ornaments, added liquid glass to the glitter, and wink of stella on the other ornaments, and then adhered to panels of white and red cardstock. Took red cardstock and dry embossed it with an ornament folder, and used sandpaper on the edges and ornaments to age it.  Cut three small ornaments from red glitter paper and added liquid glass. Tied ribbon around the card and a double bow.

Pretty design, Sue. Love the double bow. I like that you changed the orientation of the card - and in the opposite direction that I changed mine. Good luck to both of us in this challenge!

Another great card! And using the embossing folder on the red background was a good idea!

Gorgeous. At first I thought your ornaments had been distressed. I always look forward to seeing what you do with the sketch. Thanks for joining us at AHSC.
