Hello, Birch Press friends! Today, I am sharing this elegant card featuring the Revello Ornament Layer Set. This ornament would look beautiful in any color combination. I chose to go a little less traditional with my purple color scheme, and I love how it turned out.
My initial inspiration for this card came from the new Poinsettia Garland paper pad. I chose a sheet with a foiled pattern, and I knew I wanted something shiny and beautiful to go on top. The paper is a unique color – it’s almost like a muddy gray. I cut it down to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and inked up the edges with Pumice Stone and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. The foil on the paper resists the ink. All I had to do was wipe the excess ink off of the foil with a dry cloth. I then glued this panel to an A2 card base.
I cut Layers B and C of the Revello Ornament from two shades of purple card stock. I cut Layer A from gold card stock, and then I glued those three layers together. I wanted a solid back for my ornament, so I took one of the dies and traced it onto cream colored card stock. After fussy cutting that out, I glued it to the back of the ornament. I then glued the ornament onto the card panel.
I chose a sentiment from the Christmas Ornament and Labels stamp set and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I have the matching die set for these stamps, so I used the die to cut it out. I then glued that at an angle on top of the ornament. I used the ornament topper die from the Radiant Ornament Layer Set and cut that from the same gold card stock as my ornament. Before adding this on top of the ornament, I tied some ribbon and gold thread through it.
I hope this card puts a smile on your face and inspires you to try some unique color combinations for your holiday cards. Thank you so much for joining us today.
