Red Tinsel Ornaments

The Fabulous Flourish stamp is fast becoming a favourite of mine and I’m sure I’ll be using it on cards for lots of different occasions. This time I decided to use it on the background of this Christmas card which I’m submitting into the Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge and My Partner in Crafting Crime Challenge #13 (Shine on you Crazy Diamond).

Merry Christmas Ornaments
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Fabulous Flourish, Decorative Ornament & Three Christmas Trees.

I white embossed the flourish and sentiment on some kraft card. The ornaments are embossed with red tinsel embossing powder which has tiny flecks of glitter in it - lovely sparkle in real life but hard to capture in a photograph. I suspended the ornaments from the flourish with some yummy twine that Sue had sent me – thanks again Sue, I love using it on my cards! To finish I just added a few gems.

You are SO clever & creative, Heather! It never would have crossed my mind to orient the Flourish this way. And to have the ornaments hanging from it is genius!
