Ornaments

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year–for many different reasons. However, I have to admit that I have a fondness for ornaments. Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a collection of Christmas ornaments–from German blown glass, vintage glittered balls, figurals, pysankas to everything in between. There’s something about sparkling ornaments hanging on a tree reflecting the colored lights that speaks to one’s soul. It’s the perfect embodiment of the spirit of the holiday and the fascination of the child inside of all us that will never grow up.

Today’s card project is inspired by my love of ornaments. It’s also another card made experimenting with my Cricut Imagine. The ornament layers were printed and cut with the Cricut Imagine Art Cartridge entitled “Snow Angel” at 4″. The layers of the ornament were then assembled using Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimensionals to create depth and visual interest. The base cardstock and ribbon are both from Papertrey Ink’s Blueberry Sky color way. The card mat is a 4″ x 5″ piece of glittered cardstock from Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) “Winter Wonder” paper stack. The sentiment is a clear acrylic stamp from Papertrey Ink.








I hope that if you celebrate Christmas, your tree is filled with beautiful ornaments that remind you of family, friends, and most importantly, love. As always Crafters, keep the adhesive and scissors nearby–because there’s nothing that can’t be made a bit better with the proper tools.

  1. I love how you use every day (well every day during the holiday season) items as inspiration! With little ones in the house I only have four ‘no touch’ decorations; but I’ve always loved the beautiful glass ornaments. You’ve made another stunning card. TFS! 🙂
