Ornament Keepsakes!

I’m back!!  I bet you were wondering where I have been, haven’t you?!  Ever since the Fair, I have just been swamped and can never seem to find enough time in the day to get everything done.

For my post today, I wanted to share a Christmas card with some of the new product from the Holiday catalog.  I especially love the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set as shown on page 3 along with the Holiday Ornaments framelits dies – aren’t they awesome!

Let me know your thoughts on the card – would love to hear them.  You can just post at the bottom of this blog post!

Step by Step:


  1. Adhere the 4” x 5 ¼” very vanilla card stock to the inside of the card.  Attach the 1 ½” x 4” Sahara sand dsp to the top of the very vanilla card stock.  Stamp one of the ornaments from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set onto the bottom right corner of the very vanilla card stock.
  2. Attach the 2nd piece of 4” x 5 ¼” very vanilla card stock to the outside of the card.
  3. Put the river rock card stock into the lacy brocade embossing folder and run through the Big Shot.  Take a piece of 3/8” basic black taffeta ribbon (approximately 6”) and run down the middle of the river rock card stock.  Adhere to the back with tape.  Attach all to the very vanilla on the outside of the card.
  4. Attach the silver glimmer paper to the 3” x 4” basic black card stock.  Put a dimensional on the back side in each of the 4 corners and attach in the center of the card and over the ribbon already in place.
  5. Stamp your ornaments from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set using basic gray stamp pad.  Cut out using the big shot and holiday ornaments framelits.  Attach as shown with stampin’ dimensionals on the back to pop up.  Put one larger pearl and 2 smaller pearls on the largest ornament. 
  6. Stamp “Happy Christmas” on the 5/8” very vanilla card stock using basic gray ink.  Using the 1 ¼” square punch – notch out the end.  Attach to the basic black ¾” x 3” card stock.  Put 2 dimensionals on the back and attach to the card.
  7. Make a bow with 10” of the 3/8” basic black taffeta ribbon and secure to top of card with mini glue dot.
  8. Your card is finished!

    Hi Shari, I'm glad to see you are back! I really like this card, it is very elegant. Having made this card at your demonstrator swap, it is relatively quick to make. It has a great WOW effect to those I showed it to. Thanks for another great card idea.
