Ornaments on a Branch

This pine branch was my latest die purchase. I cut it out of green. (Two branches came with it. I'll use the smaller ones later.) I embossed the background with a retired Sizzix embossing folder and matted with matching green cardstock. I used an old QuicKutz die to cut the ornaments out of patterned paper. I then cut them out of cardstock to glue the paper onto for added strength. I also cut the ornament hangers out of silver and added them to the tops of the ornaments. I mounted the ornaments on foam squares. I used pieces of silver cord to "hang" the ornaments from the branches. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Several people asked me about the die I used on Thursday's card. I got it here.

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

This is a great idea for the pine branch (which I happen to have). I only wish I had that nifty dotted embossing folder!

I think I have that branch, too (the original). Love it here with the ornaments and embossing. Two more Christmas cards done and both so pretty!

Love this card...especially the branch that falls “out of the frame!” Very creative...I, also really like the background embossing!
