Today’s post is the last of our projects we created at our Play Day a few weeks ago. It was created by Naomi who very generously shared it with us. In saying this, it is very easy to create but I had so much trouble creating it that it just about took me 2 weeks to get it right. I know, you are shaking your head in disbelief. Maybe I just wasn’t in the “zone”!
It is perfect for chocolates, a little bit of jewellery or little nick knacks for that special person for Christmas or in fact by changing out the DSP, etc any occasion.

Today’s card is our 2nd card we created last Sunday. I am loving this card & thankfully the ladies did too. They especially loved how you can use your ornaments to create an entirely different card.
Again we used the Delicate Ornament & Embellished Ornaments Bundle. While creating this card, I suddenly realised that there was a small flower in the middle of one of the Ornaments – thank you Stampin’ Up!. We stamped the image a couple of times in Real Red for the flowers & again in Old Olive for the leaves before fussy cutting the images & layering on top of each other. I love to use my stamps different ways & love to show the ladies the same.
We actually coloured the Rhinestones with a Yellow Permanent Marker.
Our technique last Sunday was all about “Inlaid Dies“. I love, love, love doing this & thought this card was perfect for this technique.
I was so happy when I saw “Wondrous Wreath” had returned in the new Catalogue. I hadn’t purchased it when it first come out but after seeing so many gorgeous cards created using this set, I knew I just had to get it.
Although, in saying that, I have used it a little different. Add a little bit of the gorgeous new “Merry Moments DSP” I think we created a lovely Christmas Card. “Christmas Card” you say, no it isn’t too early & the ladies thought it fantastic that we start our cards so early. I am going to try & do at least 1 up until November.
