Ornament Keepsakes

I participated in a Christmas card swap.  How can I pass up Christmas cards?  This is similar to what I submitted for the swap.  I added the Espresso scallop strip next to the ribbon.  I had each version and the family voted on which was best and it was divided.  I went with less because the Espresso didn't make it or break it, it was just there.

I also have to say that the acetate flocked paper that was part of the DP was really, really hard to cut through.  The die I used didn't cut through it.  My paper trimmer got a cut but it wasn't clear through.  In both instances, I had to use scissors.  I have heard some say that sandwiched between regular paper it cuts well.  I wasn't aware of that tip at the time so I don't know if it works or not.

Stamps:  Ornament Keepsakes (inside the card)
CS:  VV, Early Espresso, Real Red, Lucky Limeade, Candlelight Christmas DP
Ink:  Real Red, Early Espresso (ornament stamped inside card)
Misc.:  Dimensionals, vintage brads, large paper doily, 2-1/2" circle punch, lacy brocade EF, lucky limeade ruffled ribbon, holiday ornaments framelit, scallop border punch.
