Day 7 Christmas Post

Continuing with my 25 days of Christmas, here is today's post.

Card closed (this is what you see on the front).

Card opened up.

This card is called a tri-shutter card, and I've been wanting to try one for awhile now. This seemed like a great time to do that.

The stamps used are Delightful Decorations (from the Holiday Mini Catalog) and Christmas Punch (a level 2 hostess set). The base of the card uses Sahara Sand card stock, and the Designer Series paper is Holiday Lounge. The ornaments were stamped onto Ruby Red card stock using VersaMark ink and embossed. Two were embossed using Iridescent Ice embossing powder, and two embossed using gold embossing powder. They were then punched out using the matching Ornament punch. Two are "hung" using gold elastic cord and finished at the top with Kraft taffeta ribbon.

The "A merry little Christmas to you" was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with VersaMark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. It was then cut out and layered onto a piece of Ruby Red card stock that was punched using the Wide Oval punch.

I hope you come back tomorrow to see the next project! Let me know what you are thinking about my 25 days of Christmas.
