For today’s Embellished Ornament card, I chose to create a patriotic theme. Sending cards to our troops anytime is important but especially at the holidays when they are away from home. This is an easy layout to make any color combination for other countries or even school colors, too.
First thing is to add some snail adhesive to a 3-1/2″ white card stock square and adhere 1/4″ strips of red, white and blue card stock. I chose the thick whisper white card stock so it matched the thickness of the Real Red and Pacific Point card stock.
Position your ornament die where you like it and run thru your Big Shot.
I was delighted to discover the Stampin’ Up metallic sequins matched the Lucky Stars folder exactly! I used the new Fine Tip glue pen and added just a drop of glue, carefully added the sequin, then left it alone for 10 minutes to dry. I’m telling you, those sequins are not going anywhere! That glue (once it dries) is excellent for holding stuff on!
The greeting is actually from Happy Scenes from the Holiday catalog, which was more of a thanksgiving sentiment but I thought it was perfect here.
Thick Whisper White card base: 5-1/2″ x 11″, scored in landscape position at 4-1/4″ for a top fold card. Pacific Point cs is 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4. Real Red cs is 3″ x 5-1/4″. Silver Foil strip is 1/4″ x 5-1/4″ and scraps to banner punch and for the ornament top.
Here’s my basic supply list should you find yourself needing to order anything. Sometimes it helps to have the items listed so here they are:
