Ornament Garland

Good afternoon all. I have several Christmas cards to show you today. 
It is frightening to think that Christmas is just a little over 3 months away.

Early in August, I was able to go to the annual Craft Show about 1 1/2
hours away in Newcastle. I was determined not to buy anything, but hey,
you know what it's like, don't you ladies, that is not a concept we crafters
understand too well...I kept finding myself lining up at various cash
registers with little plastic baskets full of "I must have it items".

Keeping with my personal policy of not making 2 cards the same, I made these
3 cards using this absolutely gorgeous die. I had the idea that I could probably 
also use the garland with other objects in place of the Christmas items.

I love Kraft with red and/or burgundy.

This card was made with grey Bazzill cardstock.

A closer look at the gorgeous die-cut, with Platinum Stickles dots.

A closer look at the die-cut, with tiny pearls, on the grey Bazzill. 
The burgundy cardstock is the same on all 3 cards, but don't
they look different against the different cardstocks.

I bought 1 metre of this 'yummy' grossgrain ribbon, 
but wish I had bought more.

Die - Kaisercraft Ornament Garland
Ribbon - The Craft Queen
Punch - Creative Memories Corner
Stickles - Ranger Platinum 
Pearls and peel-off sticker are from my junk stash

Challenges I would like to enter

Until next time, thank you for visiting.
