So, when I saw the gorgeous Raisin Boat Merry Nature stamp set my mind started thinking of other ways to use it.
What do you see in this picture? I see two gorgeous trees, an evergreen and a birch. I see a couple of quotes and some sentiments. And... Yes, wait for it.
I see some branches. If you put that evergreen tree on its side, why not? Then it's the perfect place to hang the gorgeous Victorine Original Snowflake Ornament. Am I right?
I will admit that I tried stamped the Merry Christmas directly onto the Gingham DP. A word to the wise. That did not work. So what's a girl to do? Throw the card - the nearly finished card (gasp!) - in the trash. Definitely not. I simply stamped the sentiment onto a white piece of CS and sponged Antique Linen ink around the edges to match the sponging on the image piece and then I adhered it right on top of the Merry Christmas that didn't look very good on the DP.
I added a rhinestone to the center of the ornament and wanted to add some balance to the card, so I also added a few of the rhinestones in the lower left corner as well.
You might also notice that there is just a partial bit of black showing below the red striped DP. That is not a mistake; that was intentional. Just another little creative tweak to this particular card.
I hope you liked my card.
Thanks for stopping by today!
