Welcome! I have another Easy to Make, Easy to Mail Christmas card for you today. I started with the little hanger trio from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits set--I have gotten great mileage out of this stamp over the last couple of years. As much as I love buttons for ornaments, I was trying to avoid adding the weight and thickness of three buttons. The ornament on the right is from Communique Curves, and the center and left ornaments and sentiment are from the Love Lives Here: Holidays set. I stamped the background with Background Basics: Twinkle using Adirondack Bottle ink on Pinefeather cardstock.
I added some glitter to the heart centers, and Christmas Red Stickles as the berries on the spruce bough. So, how do we simplify even further?
You could use gray or silver ink for the ornament hangers, eliminating the need for heat embossing. (Of course, you lose the raised shimmer.) You can skip the sewing, and use tiny red rhinestones to keep from having to wait for glitter glue to dry. The background could be left plain, or you could use a simple patterned paper there if you'd rather. In fact, I'll probably try a different version of this card using patterned paper and a different style. . . Hmmmm. . .thinking!
Thanks for visiting.
