Christmas Gleaming Falling Ornaments Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
Today I'm sharing a really quick & simple card design that I demonstrated on my weekly LIVE Class this week. I also play with the new Delicata Metallic Inks, which I've found to be far superior to metallic inks we've had in the past because they provide great coverage and resist smearing. Check out the card details below.

Christmas Gleaming Falling Ornaments Cards

You don't need a lot of layers and frills to make a truly beautiful holiday card.  Today's card design was inspired by a swap card I received from Judy Garza. I CASEd her lovely design and experimented with some different color combinations.  Let's see how it comes together…

Background Basics—I started by stamping a large Christmas Gleaming ornament in Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink in the upper right corner of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Next, I added the small ornament in Pretty Peacock directly below it, and the other large ornament in Blueberry Bushel below that.  I added a second column of ornaments by stamping the Blueberry Bushel one onto scrap Whisper White cardstock, punching it out with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack and laying it in the position I wanted it.  I added a copper ornament below and a Pretty Peacock one above.  I adhered the background to a Pretty Peacock card base.

Shiny Ornament—I popped up punched out ornament with Dimensionals, then colored over the image with Wink of Stella glimmer.  Next, I tied a knot in the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive Reversible Ribbon and attached it with a Glue Dot.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Christmas Gleaming sentiment in Mossy Meadow onto Whisper White scrap, then cut it out and popped it up.  So simple & sweet!

Two Cool—For my second version, I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base, and added ornaments in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink, Seaside Spray ink and Gorgeous Grape ink.

Finishing Touches—This time, I used Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon for the knot and the sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana.

Three Cool—This is the original swap card that I received from Judy Garza.  She used traditional Christmas colors on a Thick Whisper White card base with no background layers for a really clean look. The ornaments are stamped in Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink, Garden Green and Real Red.  The sentiment is also stamped in Real Red.  She finished her ornament with a knot in the Garden Green Double-Stitched Ribbon.

Inside The Card—Judy stamped the inside with more Christmas Gleaming images in Real Red and Garden Green.  What a pretty border!
