Delightful Ornament in 3D

I just love the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder found in the Holiday Mini. I've been using it so much with my holiday cards. It adds beautiful texture; such a pretty effect with little effort. Combine it with the adorable Ornament Punch and Delightful Decorations set(also in the Holiday Mini) and I have yet another festive card with minimal effort.

* Started with a Real Red standard card base
* Ran a piece of Whisper White and my Petals a Plenty folder through the Big Shot and layered that on top.
* Using a Sponge Dauber, I added some Frost White Shimmer Paint and a little Soft Suede to the embossed poinsettias.
* Grabbed my Ornament Punch and popped out an ornament in the lower corner. Offset the punch slightly and popped out a sliver more (this will give me enough room to place my 3-d ornament and allow the card to open)
* Inked up one of my ornaments from the Delightful Decorations set and stamped 3 images in Soft Suede onto Whisper White.
* Punch out the ornaments with the Ornament Punch. Added a red Fire Rhinestone to the center ornament. Fold other two ornaments in half and adhere half to the back of the center ornament - the 'back' half will adhere to your card base. I hope that makes sense
* With card closed, adhere your 3-d ornament through the front punch onto your card base.
* My sentiment from Many Merry Messages was inked in Real Red onto Whisper White. Using my Photo Corner Punch, popped out the edge to kreate my flag 'tails'. Of course I had to distress the edges with a bit of Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber
* A 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain faux double bow finishes off the top.
* Inside the card, I used my Merry and Bright Rub-Ons (Holiday Mini) to kreate a quick message on a Soft Suede Punched Ornament.
* With my Signo White Gel Pen, I dotted in a hanger and bow. TIP: If you have trouble getting that gel pen rollin', simply roll the point across the back of your hand until the ink begins to flow a little. The oils on your skin will help it to get started.
