Ornament Keepsake Merry Christmas - Try Stampin' on Tuesday

I'm hiding down the basement as it's hot and humid outside.  The temperature feels like it's 40 degrees (C) - a bit of a shock after all the cool weather we've been having.  Doesn't make one feel like making Christmas cards, but that is what I'm doing.

This card is for the sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here

Technique: The ornament was stamped 3 times using Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White card stock.  They were die cut using the Holiday Ornaments framelits.  Each ornament was folded in half with the pattern to the inside.  Then the halves were glued together to create this 3D ornament that lies flat for mailing.
I stamped 3 smaller ornaments on the background, by stamping off prior to stamping on the image panel.

Stamps: Ornament Keepsake, Christmas Greetings
Inks: Cherry Cobbler
Papers: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Season of Style DSP
Accessories: Holiday Ornaments framelits, 3/8" white taffeta ribbon, 1/8" silver taffeta ribbon, dazzling diamonds, white Baker's twine, dimensionals.
