CAS Christmas April 2018 - Ornament

Hello friends.  Playing along with this month's challenge at CAS Christmas where they are looking for an ORNAMENT on your card!


I used an ornament die from AliExpress and a scrap of cardstock I had used Lindy's Magicals on to come up with my card.


I die cut the ornament twice with just plain white cardstock and also the scrap of Lindy's Magicals (Tibetan Poppy Teal) so that I could inlay the pieces.  I dry embossed another layer of white cardstock with the SU! Pine Branches ef and then added the ornament over top of that.  The sentiment is from PTI's Beautiful Berries: Winter and was stamped with Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink.

 
I wish I knew how to capture the sparkle and shimmer of the Lindy's Magicals, but you'll just have to use your imagination instead.  I really LOVE the way this one turned out!

There are some absolutely GORGEOUS cards from the DT and also in the gallery already, so if you're looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, make sure you check out the CAS Christmas site HERE.  This challenge is open until the 24th.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  4. What a gorgeous ornament card, Marcia! Your Lindy's Magicals ornament is just BEAUTIFUL!! I love the colors (and they must look more sparkly and shimmery IRL)! You also worked on the details so well - dry embossed the pine branches, inlaid the ornament, and inked the sentiment with the festive shimmer silver. Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful card at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx

  6. Striking card, Marcia! Fabulous job with the Magicals... I was not so successful with my attempt and had to use a DIY shimmer spray to get the sparkle I wanted. Love the colours and the embossed pine background. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas. xx
