My card is pretty simple but the bling dresses it up. I was also totally inspired by the inspiration piece Tammy used. So, I cut a frame from silver glitter paper with my Die-namics Designer Labels 1 STAX and popped it up on bits of foam. I cut the ornament from my Die-namics Christmas Ornaments Die Only using Sno Cone card stock and added a silver hanger and some silver cord. The holly leaf is also from Die-namics Christmas Ornaments Die Only and I added some jewels that I colored the color of Bermuda Bay with a Copic marker. I used Sweet Tooth card stock and Steel Gray card stock for my base card and added a Blue Raspberry button under a clear button for another pop of color. The sentiment was stamped with gray ink and is from Clearly Sentimental About Christmas.
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set, along with more Copic-colored jewels:
Here are the Die-namics dies I used for this card:
