Triple Ornaments


The Jingle Belles challenge this week is to use 3 elements of something, so I've dug into my stash and used some SU! Mosaic Madness stamps and a matching punch. The "ornaments" were done with white embossing powder on Pacific Point blue cardstock and strung with some silver cord onto a SU! falling snow embossed background. The MB pine needle border was die-cut with white and covered with Diamonds stickles, but the camera didn't pick up the shimmer. The top silver border is actually paper I bought at a close-out years ago. I adhered it with some Scor-tape. The Northwoods sentiment was silver embossed and matted with Pacific Point, and I added assorted sizes of silver gemstones on the card for the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have yourselves a wonderful Sunday!

What a great way to make "ornaments"! Beautiful colors...and the pine boughs and snow are wonderful!

Love these ornaments (and this SU set is a NBUS at my house). Your idea to cut in blue, emboss in white, really turned out stunningly. Of course the dots embossing is always pretty, but adding in the pine branch border, amped this look up so much. Really bright & festive. TFS & Hugs

This is a very pretty layout with the branches coming down from the top. The colors are unexpected for the tree theme, but very pretty with the snow!

Super-pretty Christmas card!! Love very much your use of the mosaic stamp and punch, these "ornaments" are just fabulous! Great snowfall on the back and the pine branches in white look so sweet, a perfect match!

I am really loving this card Carol! The blue/white and silver color combo is just beautiful! I love the "ornaments", they made the perfect ornament. I so love that pine die cut too, need to put that on my wish list. lol The silver stripe at the top is perfect! It looks almost like you have stapled it on the top, which would have been really cool. Yep, I am loving this one!! Hugs, Brenda
