Tiny Ornaments


I made this Tiny Tree card recently with snippets of leftover green cardstock and a SU! mini tree punch. Today I made a similar card with the SU! mini ornament punch and some leftover strips of red envelope paper (also from SU!). I simply glued each one down on a piece of white card, then die-cut it with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die. The large ornament is a Holly Ornament die-cut from Heartfelt Creations that I outlined with a fine marker while it was still in the die. I added a SU! silver-embossed sentiment and a few red gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty and tied it all up with 2 different thicknesses of silver cording. I may have to make some matching tags with these leftover snippets because they really catch my eye!

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground #245 where it's always a requirement to use your leftover snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend of wonderful weather as we are here in PA!

LOVE this card Carol! It's so fresh and very Christmassy too. I need to read your post again - if your stuck all those little red ornaments on individually I'm bowled over!

Oh good grief Carol - I also hopped over to check out the trees card and am amazed at the precision with which you added those punches out trees and now ornaments to your cards! Phew.

WOWzers, Carol! This card is so pretty and I am amazed at all those tiny ornament punch outs you adhered on that layer! It looks like DSP! Such a fabulous Christmas card! Your main ornament is eye catching! Love how you traced it while still in the die! I simply love it! Oh and I love that you keep reminding me of those stitched panels! LOL I know, I know....I have to dig mine out and use them! TFS this beauty and I hope you are having a nice Labor Day weekend! Love & hugs!

WOW, Carol! I did the same as Di and reread your post. You must have so much patience to stick all the ornaments on individually! A stunning card! I also popped back to see your tree card - beautiful! xx

Great work Carol, all those little ornaments are fixed down with such precision. I like the touch of silver and the stitched die cuts.

I love the pretty hydrangea in your last post as well.

I thought this was a greek looking die cut from white card and laid over top of red card. Then I read you had punched and placed all this baubles individually.
Well done, Carol. You have so much patience and it paid off as this is a fabulous card!
