CAS Swinging Ornament Merry Christmas Card

This is another 'bits from the box' card I've completed.  The stamped and die cut ornament has been in the box for a few weeks and I dug it out together with a lacy square die cut shape that has been in the box for ages!

I stamped the pine bough onto the lacy square and then punched two small holes so I could tie the ornament to the bough so it would swing.  I applied glitter glue to the bough and when that was dry I tied the ornament on with gold sparkly thread.  I stamped the sentiment and popped the lacy square up.

Inside I simply matted and layered a sentiment.  For the envelope flap I used markers to ink a stamp from the SU! Ornament Keepsakes set and used circle punches to mat and layer.

I've still got quite a few bits in the 'to be completed' box that need dealing with.  I'm sure I'll be adding to it all the time and I don't anticipate it will ever be empty.  I plan to keep it more under control from now on though - I'm going to try at least!  I don't want it to get to the point where I can't fit the lid on again!
