Ornament Christmas

Here is one of the Christmas cards I made on Wednesday.  I was trying this out for my calendar, but I stuck with all white for my December page, instead.  That is kind of my "tradition."

I embossed the ornament with a Lasting Impressions brass stencil and my BIGkick.  I stippled Real Red and Soft Silver inks through the stencil after it was embossed.  I rubbed the edge of the ink pad on the edge of my white cardstock and matted with shiny silver paper.  I embossed the frame with a rectangle Nestability.  The row of dots is embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder.  Then I scored the lines with my Scor-Pal.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impression.  I love the font!  I matted the entire piece with some more silver.

Yesterday I told you about a little bit of blog candy.  One random commenter is going to win one of my completed calendars.  You can find the information in this post.  You have until midnight on Tuesday to comment on Friday's post.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

The ornament looks like it was waterpainted on. Very classic. I love it!

Very pretty card, Lynette! I don't think to use my stencils often enough. The ornament makes a very nice size to use on this card!
