Merry Christmas

Hi, Joy here today.  This week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is to use Christmas Die Cuts.  I'd like to show how you can make your die cuts as little ornaments.   Let's get started.  Here is my card.

First from white card stock die cut 4 of the medium ornaments from the Spellbinders die set called 2012 Heirloom Ornaments -- which is on SALE!  If you use the coupon code Joy-10, you will get an additional 10% off -- now that's a deal! 

Now cut 8 of the smaller ornament out of white card stock. Stamp 1 of the medium die cut ornaments with the medium stamp, and 2 of the smaller ornaments from the JustRite set called Noel Christmas Ornaments, and color with your favorite markers. I used Copics.

Using a small drop of Art Institute Adhesive, and spreading with a paint brush, glue 4  die cuts to each other ending with the stamped one on top. You will then have a thick, but not heavy paper ornament.  Coat the top colored ornament with an even thin even layer of the Art Institute Adhesive, and Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Crystal Ice Ultra Fine Glitter.  Some gold twine was attached, and then the ornaments were put on some of the paper from  Authentiques's Tradition Christmas paper. I put the year on the back of the ornament.

Why not join the challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.  You could get a jump on your Christmas cards and maybe win that nice prize!  Go to the Classy Cards 'n Such blog and look at the details.
