3D Ornament Merry Christmas Card - 52 {C}CT September Colour Challenge

This week at 52 {C}CT we have this fab colour combo for you.

For my card I've used Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red and Very Vanilla.  I also used some of my new SU! goodies.  When I saw the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set in the Autumn/Winter catalogue I thought the stamps were so beautiful, then when I saw the matching Framelits dies I knew the bundle was a "must have"!    

I cut a piece of Candlelight DSP and matted it on a Riding Hood Red layer and adhered that to an Early Espresso A6 card. I stamped 3 ornaments, die cut them, scored them in half and glued them together to form the 3d ornament  I stamped the sentiment, matted the layers, added square gems to the corners of the Espresso layer and added a strip of pleated satin ribbon.  

For inside the card I cut a Vanilla panel and added a strip of patterned paper - the reverse of the one that I'd used on the front and stamped the "Wishing you a beautiful season and a new year of peace and happiness" sentiment.  I stamped and die cut another ornament and glued that to an Espresso circle for the envelope flap to finish off.

The other DT members have got wonderful cards to inspire you so after you've checked them out I hope you'll join in with our challenge, I'd love to come and see what you create!

ooooh, I so want this set now!!! Loved it when I saw it in the catalogue but it's even more fabulous than I thought (or may be it's just that you are so brilliantly creative Ruth!

What a very elegant card Ruth. You always finish your cards so beautifully too and the coordinating inside and the envelope are a great touch. Vicky x
