ID: MC July 11 - Xmas Masked Ornaments card
4"w x 8.5"h

Created: July 31, 2011


I was in a mood for a one layer card... So die cut my ornaments in some clear plastic and used them both as a mask and a stencil.

This card also uses a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

So using the smaller ornament as a mask, stamped the small doves (Flourishes set #69) with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, then used the it as a stencil and sponged Distress Barn Door around the edges. Colored the image with some Prisma colors and added red Stickles for the holly berries and Rangers Enamel Accents black for the eyes.

Used the drop out piece from the smaller die cut to cover my first ornament, then layered the mask for the larger ornament on top. Stamped the larger Winter Bouquet (Flourishes set #75) with the black and clear embossed it and again colored with prisma colors. Used Liquid Pearls "White Opal" for the berries and when dry added some black dots with a black Identi pen.

Used one of my oldest Cuttlebug embossing folders "Snowflakes #37-1140 and my hard rubber mallet to add the texture around the rest of the card. I then used a bone folder to smooth down the area for stamping the quote (part of the "Winter Bouquet" set) with the black.

Stamped the sentiment with the black, clear embossed it and die cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags #S4-235, ran thru again to emboss and then sponged some of the red around the edges.

Used a mini glue gun to adhere the gold braided cord and twined/adhered the sentiment. Final touch to add the peg bow red bows.
