Joyous Noel Ornament

Are you ready for Christmas??  I've got another Christmas card to share with y'all.  This one has more muted and elegant tones for a vintage feel with a little touch of glitter.

I started with a couple of patterned papers from the gorgeous Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pack (Simple Stories) and adhered them to a strip of vanilla cardstock.  I added some Ivory Cotton Cluny lace over the bottom piece of patterned paper and taped it to the back of the vanilla cardstock strip.  This piece was then affixed to a burgundy card base.  Next, I stamped the largest ornament from the Noel Christmas Ornaments stamp set (Just Rite) on some vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating 2010 Heirloom ornament die set (Spellbinders).  I colored the ornament with some Copic markers to match the papers and then I lightly sponged the edges with some Antique Linen distress ink.  Then I pulled out my stash of glitter and added some Chantilly glitter to the three circles on this ornament.  The ornament was then affixed to the card with some Joy foam pads (small).

This card can be created in tons of different colors - just change the papers and color-coordinate the ornament.  Best of all, this card doesn't have any bumpy embellishments and it will be perfect to pop in the mail.  I hope this inspires you to make a few more Christmas cards for your stash this year.  :-)  Remember, you can save 10% by using this code, Holly-10, when you shop at Classy Cards 'n Such.
