We are having a Bold & Sassy Color Duo this week at Dynamic Duos! The featured colors are Poppy Parade and Lucky Limeade. I just happened to have both colors in my stash! Don't worry, if you do not have the posted colors....make your creation with the closest shades that you have! All products are welcome in the challenge!
I created my card with help from the sketch this week at Merry Monday. I flipped the sketch and used my ornament in place of the square.
I kept my card on the clean and simple side, in part to show off the lovely ornament and my double bow! I can't decide which I like more, the bow or the ornament! I am a huge fan of bows....but must admit, I am bow impaired! The vast majority of bows you see on my cards are made with a Bow Easy. It was the best $5 I ever spent! I don't recall where I purchased it....but many stores sell them online.
My ornament was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped with the coordinating stamp set, Ornamental Cheer. After stamping, I ran the ornament through my Xyron machine to get a even layer of adhesive, then covered with prisma glitter. The shimmer is hard to capture in the photo, but the ornament really shines in person.
Ornamental Cheer is a collection of stamps that coordinate with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. You can make quick and easy Christmas cards or even decorations for your tree! Here is a photo of the full set. The images with lines around them indicate there is a Cricut shape to coordinate with the stamped image.
I added a single strip of ribbon to finish out the inside of the card.
