Ornamental Envelopes Quick Card

Hi Friends! The card I'm sharing with you today uses the "Ornamental Envelopes" bundle. To be honest, though I liked this bundle when I first saw it in our mini catalogue, I hummed and hawed over whether or not I ought to order it. Well, I did and guess what? I LOVE it. The images are so much fun to work with and the dies are phenomenal, especially for our envelopes! Here are some samples:

The first card I made with this bundle is the card that I'm sharing with you today. I wanted to use fun 'retro' colours so I went with Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Bermuda Bay. 

What a cool little colour combo, hey?

Card details:
  • I first stamped the ornaments onto Whisper White card stock using Versamark ink and then embossed in white. 
  • Next, I sponged on Bermuda Blue and Real Red inks, wiping off the residue with a paper towel (this is the emboss resist technique). 
  • I used the coordinating dies to cut the ornaments and set them aside. 

  • I stamped the ornaments again, onto another Whisper White card stock layer. I just used a Basic Black marker for the dotted lines. Then I took the negative ornament die cut to use as a stencil so that I could sponge the ornament circles. My this just added a nice little outline behind the die cuts.
  • I glued the ornament dies cuts on top, stamped the corners and sentiment. 
  • A little ribbon and some embellishments finished off the card nicely!

The sentiment that I used on today's card is from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set. This stamp set has been around for a while now but lemme tell ya, I've used it a TON. It's a classic holiday set to have in your collection because it's ideal for cards, tags, gifts and covers the gamut with all the different sayings.

  1. This does look like a nice set. Your ornament card is gorgeous. The white on top with a hint of colour is so unique.
