Ornament card

hi there,
very behind sorry havent posted...swamped at work. I manage office properties right next to the Quantico Marine base and with the sniper shootings at the Marine museum it has been crazy around here. We had a bomb threat that thankfully turned out to be nothing but was sure scary while they were investigating....lost a whole day dealing with that...oh well! stop whining right!

so here is one of my cards from Heartfelt Creations that was on the DT Blog this past Wednesday....

HCPC3336 Ornament Medallion PreCut Set

1298B Christmas Joy

Cut card base using cranberry cs 5.5 x 11 and folded in half.
Cut designer paper 5.25 x 5
Added organdy ribbon to side of dp and adhered dp to card base
Cut cranberry cs 4.25 x 5 for mat.

Cut black cs 4 x 4.75 Using Versamark – randomly stamped all the ornaments in this set onto the card. Using embossing powders white, gold, green and red, brushed them across areas of the card as seen. Blew off excess powder and lightly sprayed with hairspray to set the powder.
Adhered to card.

Stamped sentiment using cranberry dye ink onto white cs. Cut with nestie tag and lightly sponged with same ink while still in the die.

Hard decision where to place the sentiment LOL!

this can be a "little" messy if  you go heavy with the powders, just a touch goes a long way!!

Final embellishment of gold mini pearls.

enjoy the weekend!

This is such a beautiful, colorful card. Love it. Scary to hear about those things on TV - can imagine how you must have felt being so close to it.

I am beginning to think the world is going mad! Sorry these people have to even disrupt other peoples days. Then we have cargo planes with explosives. Good grief! Anyhow, I love this creative card and the way you layed it all out! Hugs!

Beautiful! Great technique, I've done it with Pearl Ex, thanks for reminding me of it. Glad everything turned out okay, but how stressful your day must have been. I'm sure it put you behind in your work.
