Holiday 2016 - Word Ornaments

Hello crafty friends, 

The first card I'm showcasing today using a fun set of dies from Die-Versions called Word Ornaments.  Sadly they are discontinued, so I can't link to them. 



I used a combination of red and green foil card stock to die cut the ornaments and fussy cut the ornaments' backing.  I arranged the ornaments in a tight circle to form a wreath.  My initial plan was to just use the ornament, but the card was lacking something, so I added some die cut greenery and some enamel dots. 

This second card is one I also posted on the Die-Versions' blog as my Design Team project.  I'm so happy that it turned out looking as elegant as i hoped it would.   



I created an ornament shaker window with tiny gold stars and beads inside and a beautiful red glitter card stock Season's Greetings die cut on top.  Here's a quick video of the shaker card in action...

  1. Mary-you always do beautiful work, but these are above and beyond! I love both of them. The ornament wreath is a great idea, and I can see how a version of it could be made even without the die. The shaker card is so pretty and love the interactivity of it, while still being so elegant. I hope you are starting to feel a bit better.
