It's the simplicity and silver accents that really make these two cool cards so elegant!  They are perfect for our stamp-a-stack style class because they are quick & fun to create!

The Christmas Collectibles stamp set and coordinating Christmas Ornament
Punch are a great combination!  I have other ornament stamps (the
gorgeous Ornament Keepsakes and Holiday Ornament Framelits), but I
quickly fell in love with the retro look of these cute ornaments!  Plus,
the punch makes it fast, fast, fast for making multiple cards!

Bundle It & Save—Order the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and Christmas Ornament Punch together in the Christmas Collectibles Bundle (wood) and save 15%!

Elegant Backgrounds—I started with a Whisper White card base, then added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White that's textured with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  Classy!

The focal point is a piece of 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" Cherry Cobbler layered with a piece of 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" Whisper White.

Ornament Layers—Check out the awesome silver accents!  Love it!  I stamped the ornament in Cherry Cobbler first, then stamped it again in the gorgeous Silver Encore Ink. Then, I cut out the center of the silver one and pieced it onto the cherry ornament. 

Silver Encore Ink Pad—Man, oh man, that Silver ink is beautiful!  It's very opaque and has an amazing sheen—much better than old silver ink pads I used to have years ago.  TIP: Be sure to let it dry a bit before cutting.  The thick ink takes a little longer to seep into the paper fibers, so it could smear if you touch it too quickly.

Silver Bow—I adhered a strip of Silver Ribbon behind the ornament and around the back of the card stock before popping it up with Dimensionals.  The bow was tied separately, then added with a Glue Dot.

For the second version, I used the Petals-A-Plenty Folder for the background texture.  It looks like poinsettias!

Recessed Ornament—Instead of popping up the ornament, I punched the shape out of the background and made a recessed ornament!  Cool!  I punched the Cherry Cobbler ornament out separately and adhered it to the card stock underneath, laying it on through the punched window for perfect positioning. 

For added dimension, I stamped the center snowflake detail in Silver Ink, then punched it with the 1/2" Circle Punch and popped it up.

Sentiment—Both cards feature greetings from the More Merry Messages stamp set stamped in the Silver Ink.

You are going to LOVE making these cards at the November Countdown To Christmas Class!  If you are getting a Class-To-Go Kit, I highly recommend getting the Encore Silver Ink Pad, too—you'll want to have it!
