Ornamental Pine meets Christmas Bauble

 Day 4 of the 12 days of Christmas, and both cards are from the Ornamental Pine stamp set, but sometimes I put different stamp sets together.

With my first card, I did just that.  I combined Ornamental Pine and Christmas Bauble.  I just love both these sets.

Here is the resultant card.

The Christmas Bauble was stamped and coloured with blendabilities.  The center of the ornament was stamped a second time, coloured and die cut using the circles framelits.  A slightly larger circle of Champagne glimmer paper became the mat for the die cut circle. The circle was attached to the glimmer paper using dimensionals.  Then in the center I placed a retired button with a rhinestone on top. This circle was attached to the ornament using dimensionals.

The ornament was then cut out and a piece of gold stretch cord (non SU) was inserted through a tiny hole at the top of the ornament.

The ornamental pine was stamped across the top of a piece of Whisper White card stock - in Old Olive and Early Espresso.

The ornament was attached to the card using dimensionals, and the cord attached to the branch with a glue dot.  A bow made of 1/8" gold taffeta ribbon was attached at the top of the cord hiding the cord attachment.
