Day 2 Adornment

I have two Christmas cards to share with you today. Today I want to introduce a beautiful stamp: Adornment

First card, I use a non-Xmas tradition color. It doesn't always need to be red and green and gold. Blue and white. I die cut a circle and stamp Adornment with Sahara sand and the sentiment with midnight black, then adhere on die cut labels of pattern paper. Stamp the Bead border twice and the dots also from Crystalline 3 times with cloud white in the bottom card base. Adhere the focal point on card front. Add liquid pearl.

Here is a close up of the liquid pearl. It's really pretty.

This one is a tradition color. Red. A quick and easy card. Perfect to mass product during the most busy season. The note card is from Making memories I pull out of my stash. The red scallop border is all on the card. This ready to use note card saves a lot of time. I die cut a circle. Stamp the Adornment watermark ink and use white embossing powder. Stamp the sentiment. Adhere the circle on card front. Tie ribbon and twine.

Close up of the ribbon. Add a twine makes the embellishment really pops up.

Close up of the embossing adornment. White against red, wow, I just love the striking color.

These cards are stunning, and you are right, Christmas can be just about any color at all. I don't think I have ever seen a wreath quite so gorgeous - great job.
