Ornament Punch Card

I really love making Christmas Cards, and usually I try to find one design that I love and use it for all of my cards.  But this year I had so much fun creating with Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper, that in no time I had several different cards all made from this same pack of paper.  What also made this years cards so much easier for me to make was the addition of the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine to my inventory of Stampin' Up! products.  By embossing the card fronts on most of my cards, I was able to create a base layer that added such wonderful dimension and texture. 

For today's card I used a piece of embossed Cherry Cobbler cardstock for my card base.  A matte layer of Always Artichoke and Deck the Halls DSP were decorated with four punched ornaments.  I punched one ornament in Always Artichoke and layered it with an ornament of Designer Paper that had Always Artichoke in most of the design, and another ornament in Cherry Cobbler and Designer Paper with Cherry Cobbler in the design as well.  Glimmer brads gave the ornaments some added sparkle and I used dimensionals to pop them up.  Always Artichoke seam binding created a nice finish to the card, as well as my stamped sentiment layered at the top.
