Sparkly, shiny Christmas ornament...

When my sister came to visit a few weeks ago, she brought along a few of her dies for me to play with. One of them was this ornament die from Marianne Creatables.  Since purple is my favorite color, I just had to make some cuts with it from purple glitter paper.


This is the card I made with it. I backed the die with some shiny silver embossed cardstock and then used the "Precious Hearts" die by Memory Box to cut a bow and the "string." I added a sparkly silver enamel dot to the center of the bow.

My sentiment is a wooden stamp from the $1.50 bin at Michael's, and I used a Martha Stewart Pine Needles Edge Punch on my sentiment mat which helped create the illusion that the ornament is hanging on a tree.



I also used the MS Pine Needles punch on the inside mat. This inside sentiment stamp is by Penny Black.

I am entering this card into this week's Winter Wonderland blog challenge: Twinkle, twinkle (all things sparkly and bright).














I made some cards like this in more traditional colors, too, and here are a few pics of those:




Finally, I ran out of the red and purple sparkly die-cuts, so I used one of my own ornament dies (Lifestyle Crafts, I believe) to cut another ornament for a couple more cards like this:

Even though I made 10 of these ornament cards, I am still a bit behind on my self-imposed Christmas card schedule. I really need to get busy and make some more!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
