Merry Chirstmas

Hello crafty friends,

Today I have two cards showcasing the beautiful Whisper Madonna Ornament die from the August 2015 release.  This die is simple and elegant and I wanted to do it justice by creating simple and elegant cards.

For my 1st card, I started with a white 5" x 6.5" card.  I trimmed a piece of blue glitter paper so the card would have a 1/4" border.

Next I positioned my die onto the blue glitter paper and ran it though my Big Shot. The die cuts the ornament out, but I inserted the ornament back into it's spot. I was going to call the card finished after adding a white ribbon bow at the beginning of the ornament stem, but I felt it needed something else.

I reached for my Holiday 1 Complements die and die cut the words "Merry Christmas".  I added them to my card following the curve of the ornament.  As a finishing touch (this time), I added three white pearls :)  

For my 2nd card, I wanted to give the illusion that the ornament was hanging from a tree.  I found the perfect pattern paper in my stash.  I wanted more than one ornament, so I reached for the Whispers Holiday Word Ornaments die and die cut the Peace and Noel ornaments.  I arranged the three ornaments on my card (6" x 6") and added white ribbon bows to each one. As a finishing touch I added some glitter dots for some sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards, they were fun and easy to make.  This is a great die to work with.  Thanks for stopping bye, leave me some feedback or links to your projects using some of these die.
