Delicate Ornaments

Oh my!  Three months from today ( just 91 days) is Christmas.  Our first October Stamp Camp card is perfect for the upcoming Christmas season.

004This fun but elegant holiday card incorporates several new products and is copied from page 14 in the Holiday Catalogue.  The white-on-white background is embossed using the new Softly Falling Embossing Folder ($8.50, page 24 in the holiday catalogue), the wonderful Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies ($29, page 15 in the holiday catalogue), the Precision Base Plate ($25, page 14 in the holiday catalogue), and the vibrant Red Foil Sheets ($4, page 26 in the holiday catalogue.

The embossing folder for this card has the snowflakes falling gently at the top and heavy at the bottom.  The card below has the snow falling heavily at the top and lightly at the bottom.  The thinlits give a crisp cut.  Note that the set includes the top of the ornament, the hanger, and the poinsettia dies as well as three dies I did not use. The smaller ornament is cut from Red Foil and the larger ornament cut from Cucumber Crush with a red glittery poinsettia and red rhinestone.  Silver glimmer paper is used for the ornament top and hook.

003 The second sample is sponged in Real Red, and as I mentioned previously, features heavily falling snowflakes at the top of the card. The larger ornament is cut from Old Olive with a silver glittery poinsettia embellishment and red rhinestone. 

The new Precision Base Plate was used to cut out all the ornaments.  The base plate gives a slightly crisper cut, but it is quite difficult to tell the difference between those ornaments cut with the precision base plate, and those cut with the standard plates.

This is card one of the cards we will be making at the October Stamp Camp on October 1, 2, 3.  The times are from 2-9 PM on the 1st and 2nd, and from 9 am – 4 pm on the 3rd.  I hope you can make it.  This card is so festive and will help Christmas come into your heart.
