Fab 3D Ornament

Hey there, stampers! I can't believe that it has been two weeks since my last post! Thank goodness I am on the design team at Fab Friday, so that I at least have to post every two weeks. I have periods where I stamp a lot and other times where it just doesn't happen. Such is life, I guess...

Anyway, Mindy has a great sketch for us this time! I think this sketch has lots of possibility. I know that you will all do great things with it.

Here is my take on the sketch...
Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade EF, 3" Circle Die, Holiday Ornament framelits, Simply Scored, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding
I just love these ornaments and the champagne glimmer paper. I also really love this color combination for Christmas. I have been seeing lots of these 3D ornaments and decided to give them a try. They are really easy to make. I stamped three ornaments and cut them out using the coordinating framelits and the Big Shot. I then scored all three down the middle vertically using the Simply Scored tool. Then I attached them together using glue dots being careful to line up the edges. For the ribbon border around the circle die cut, I attached glue dots along the edge of the back of the circle (probably a glue dot every 1/2") and then just looped the ribbon over to form ruffles and the glue dots held everything in place. This card could probably still be mailed as long as you flattened the ornament before putting it into the envelope.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card. Now, head on over to Fab Friday and play along with our sketch challenge! If you need any additional inspiration, please visit the blogs of my fellow design team members. They are all truly FAB!
