Ornament Card and Day 2 of 12 days.

There is alot to see today on my blog and coming up over the next 12 days. So don't foget to stop by. :-)

It's my day to be the Card A Day postee. Here are two cards using the same file of mine. and created in different ways. I love the versatility of this file and I love how these ladies always make me shine.  The first is by Kelly. Here are a few words on how she created this beautiful card.

I used the Ornament Card Front (CD00625) file from Chris to create this Christmas card. I love this file because there are only 2 cuts to make, one for each layer. And you could just stop there and have a beautiful card. I decided to add some extra details to mine. The background was embossed with the Large Snowflake Cuttlebug folder. I used a gold paint marker to add pen stitching around the outside and to color the tops of each ornament. Using my i-rock, I attached some red, green and gold gems to one of the ornaments. I added green, red and gold Stickles to a couple of the other ornaments. I also added a clear rhinestone that I colored with the gold paint marker to the other ornament. I just love all the sparkle!

And this version below is from Angie. and her notes on the card and how she created it.

What a fun card!  I used #CD00625 cut from red and green cardstock.  I used the ornament topper from #CD00627 cut from gold.   I cut the ribbon and string off of the topper and mounted over the red.  I used a gold leaf pen to add some dimension to the strings.  I decorated the ornaments using punches:  holly from fiskars and snowflake from Emaginations.  One of the holly leaves was punched from the green paper that was clear embossed to make it a little dark to create some shading.  Added some purple bling and tiny red bling for the holly berries.  I pop dotted the snowflake.  Added some green ribbon and stamped the greeting (unknown/unmounted stamp) using white Staz-on. 

Wow just fantastic. I love to see these cards created with my files. It is like Christmas.
