Ornate Ornaments

I used the beautiful new Ornate Ornaments stamp/die set by Simon Says Stamp from their latest STAMPtember® release to make a Christmas card...
I stamped all the ornament stamps at one time on vellum with versa mark, and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I die cut them all at once, too...way to speed up the process, and colored the ornaments from behind with sharpie, mark it markers.  I adhered and layered the vellum onto white cardstock, and tied silver cord onto each of the ornament openings.  I brushed some distress inks onto a piece of watercolor paper, let dry, then adhered the ornaments to the paper.  I dotted around the ornaments with one of my Prismacolor markers (a metallic silver).  I used 4 pieces of sentiment stamps from the set to make my sentiment for this card...the sentiments were all stamped together...worked like a DREAM!!!!  Stamped them with versa mark and like the ornaments, embossed with silver.  Here's a close up...
This set is sooooo pretty, a card simply done, but I think looks pretty lovely for Christmas giving!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
