Embossed Ornaments


Today I have a couple more Christmas cards to share with you using SU! Ornament and Mosaic punches. I had a few snippets of this beautiful metallic cardstock in my stash, so I made good use of them with some punches and embossing folders They were embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder (Snowglobe & Powdered Sugar), and backed with an embossed piece of red cardstock - done with a SU! square lattice ef. The sentiment is by SU! and the ornaments are suspended on silver stickers.


Here's the same version in blue, embossed with a Cuttlebug (CB) swiss dots folder on a piece of baby blue card stock, while the ornaments were embossed with a CB Decorative Tiles ef. I was pleased with the save on the little scraps of this precious, pricey metallic card stock and got two more Christmas cards for the stash.

I'll enter these cards into the Snippets playground #101.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a wonderful day!

Gorgeous Christmas cards, Carol. I love your embossed ornaments using the metallic cardstock. I just made a card with the metallic cardstock which I'll upload soon. It was a trial to photo it. Ugh! Looks as if you had no trouble.

Psst: There's Eggnog available behind the bike sheds if you're interested! Plus maybe a mince pie or two!

Love your sweet embossed bauble cards here.

Fabulous cards, just shows how small snippets can be turned into a thing of beauty. Err, I read about the egg nog and mince pies - sigh, it's started already :(

Hugs, Di xx

Total beauty! Since blue is my very favorite color ever I'll have to pick that second one - but they're both stunning!

Great job! The embossing makes the ornaments look like real, tooled metal.

These are stunning (and since you used snippets I hope you jumped over to Pixie's Playground with these beauties). Your ornaments sparkled and I loved the embossing on the metallic. You created such a different look to this same design, using the background embossing and the textures on your sparkling ornaments. TFS & Hugs
