Today I have the pleasure to share with you a versatile project, one that doubles as a card AND an ornament!
The card itself is simple – a white card base and a kraft panel. Now for the centerpiece – the ornament!
The ornament has a pretty simple creation process – I die cut the Holiday Branches set once out of each shade of green in the Foliage layering pack. Then, using my green ombre ink pad, I stamped the branches, using the lightest strip of ink in the pad to stamp the lightest die cut, middle strip of ink for the medium green, and dark ink for the darkest green paper. This is another great way to get more out of your supplies – use your ombre ink pads not only for ombre, but for the individual colors.
I embossed a sentiment in white on a black circle, and layered the stamped die cuts around the circle, topping the branches off with gems and a heat embossed paper bow. To make the centerpiece an ornament, I adhered a piece of string behind the circle, then covered it up with another black die cut circle for a clean look.
To add this to the card, I used my adhesive to add two strips behind the circle, then balled them up with my fingers. This helps the ornament to stick to the card base, but the adhesive won’t be permanent. You could use temporary adhesive if you wanted!
Thanks so much for stopping in today and I hope you enjoyed the ornament!
