Dangly Ornament Tent Card

I was very happy how this dangly snowflake tent card turned out.  I thought I'd try a similar card but this time with a dangly ornament instead of a snowflake.  I made the A6 sized card base with Pool Party CS, used circle dies to cut out the aperture and frame and adhered Winter Frost DSP to the back panel.  I stamped and die cut two Island Indigo ornaments, pressed one onto my VersaMark pad, sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder over it and heat embossed.  I sandwiched silver ribbon between the two ornaments with Dimensionals and taped the ribbon ends behind the aperture.

The sentiment is from the SU! Teeny Tiny Sentiments set - but it isn't teeny 'cos I printed it from My Digital Studio (MDS) and so was able to enlarge the size!  MDS is so easy to use and I'm chuffed that the software came with stamp sets that I don't own in rubber format - like Teeny Tiny Wishes.  It's fab that I can choose colours and sizes for my images and sentiments too.  I finished off the front with a silver ribbon bow and rhinestones.  

Here's a closer look at the sparkly ornament.  I LOVE that particular ornament stamp, it's so gorgeous and elegant!

Here's the back of the card and the envelope.  Again I used MDS to generate the sentiment, using a beautiful greeting from the Delightful Dozen set - another set I don't own in rubber format but which was included in the software.  I added the ornament from the Something for Christmas set so it hangs from the swirl - perfect placement without the need for a Stamp-a-Ma-Jig!  A fab feature within MDS is the drop shadow - I added that to the sentiment and loved the end result.  A simple stamped and die cut ornament on the envelope flap completed the card.

What a stunning card, that backing paper is pretty good too. Father Christmas will be getting a SU wish list from me this year thanks to your beautiful work.
