Atlantic Hearts Sketch #338


My favorite color to create Christmas cards with....purple!    Purple snowflakes are my absolute fav...but I decided to play with the Custom Ornament Thin Cuts again!  I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.


I promise the sketch design is there....I just covered up a large portion of it with my ornament!  My card is super simple to create.  I cut my the Wisteria print from the Mix In paper pack to 1 1/2" squares and matted them onto Wisteria cardstock.  For my ornament, I first embossed a panel with the Stitched Circles Embossing folder, then die cut.  I added just a teeny bit of bling, by cutting my ornament topper in Silver Foil and adding the hanger with Silver Embellishing Thread.  My ornament is popped up with thin 3-D foam for added dimension.  A wisteria ribbon bow and a sentiment from For the Tree finishes it off!
