3D Ornament...

You know those times when you sit down to stamp and can't think of a single thing to make? I hope I am not the only one who has those...LOL! All I knew was that I wanted the card uncluttered and featuring a 3D Ornament. So, I pulled out my Ski Slope DSP from last year (SO thankful I bought 3 packs of it, it is my all time favorite!), and punched 8 Ornaments. They all got folded in 1/2, glued back to back, then added to a scrap cardstock Ornament for sturdiness. Then, I was stumped. I had ideas, nothing. I went through my scrap drawer, and found the previously scalloped Old Olive strip, as well as the Petals A Plenty embossed Chocolate Chip scrap. I decided to cut some Real Red to mat between them, and that was it! The flower on the Baja Breeze base is from a retired Christmas set, and actually was colored with the VersaMarker, and stamped onto the card as it had a circle image around it. I finished it with Merry Christmas in Chocolate Chip in the bottom right corner. It's plain and simple, but when doing all different Christmas cards, that's what I was going for!!! I do have some more elaborate cards to post tomorrow, I hope that will make up for these last two simple ones.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!! I am enjoying crackling fires, a fresh Christmas tree and nighttime Christmas movies with my little girls. I hope you are all enjoying this special season as well!


  1. This card is amazing!! I love that 3d ornament-it looks so neat!

  2. Oh, this is very clever and I love the colors you used too!

  3. This is so cool Naomi!! I was just thinking...I used this paper this year as well! I am trying so hard to use things up...because you know I want to hoard this paper!
