Holiday Ornament Cards

Hi Stampers! Again, I am getting a jump on my holiday cards for this season. The stamp sets found in the Holiday Mini catalog make card making for the holidays so easy. I knew the moment I saw the stamp set Delightful Decorations I had to have it. It coordinates so well with the new ornament punch. The first card I made is pretty simple so I decided that I also need to make a "kicked-up" card. I wanted to show that simple cards car great, but you can always doctor them up a bit to make them even more elegant.

I kept the layout the same for the second card and just added some embellishments and I also used my big shot to emboss the piece of Soft Suede card stock found on the base of the card. This embossing is hard to see in the photo but it adds so much to the texture of the card and really makes it a "Wow" card. I finished off the ornaments in this card with a red rhinestone brad. I love how BOTH of these cards turned out and would be happy to receive either one of them this holiday season.
Happy Stamping~
