MC Aug/11 Xmas Ornaments Various

I did a sample of this card quite a while back and said it would be a great card to make a bunch of... Well that finally happened. Finished 4 of each color, so have 20 cards towards this years pile... plus all the others I've been making for challenges and stuff, so well on my way and we're still August. Amazing.

So I did the lettering within the circle, scanned it, printed it out (several on one piece of cardstock) die cut with a Spellbinders circle die, sponged the appropriate color around the edges, then added the matching glitter in the little word separators. Die cut the largest Spellbinders Ornament, Stamped with Flourishes "Damask Reverse" and embossed with matching embossing powder. Embossed the background layer on matching colored cardstock. Made matching peg bows, pierced a hole in the center of the bow and through the ornament and background layer. Added the matching round brad. Assembled on white cards (4.25 x 5.5"), then added the calligraphed circle. finis...

And it fits for these challenges:
Oh La La Creations  #87 No designer Papers
Christmas Stamping  No red or green on Xmas cards (cards at top of post...)
Totally paper Crafts  #79 Xmas in August

These are just extras BIG GRIN
