Along with the other two cards I posted, I sent these out. I think I mailed off 87 cards this year. These can be found on Pinterest.

I liked this stamp because it reminded me of the vintage ornaments that hung on our tree when I was a kid. Of all the ornaments that hung the ones I thought were prettiest had the circle in the center that indented and shined with gold and perhaps had some glitter for sparkle.
This picture doesn't show it, but I stamped the ornament twice, cutting out the center on the second. I stamped an extra holly portion from the ornament as well. The holly is in 3 layers and the ornament in 2.

This weekend is the first time VC Rocks has held a blog hop in December! So happy to have a chance to share one of the cards I've made for Christmas. I'll share another card later but this is my favorite of the two I plan to put on my blog. I've made 80 cards out of 14 designs. The card above is the 1 and only I'm making of this style.
Stamps: Wondrous Wreath
Framelit: Wonderful Wreath
Embossing Folder: Stylish Stripes
CS: Pool Party, WW, Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Silver Foil, Silver Fancy Foil Vellum, All is Calm DP, Quatrefancy DP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Island Indigo
Misc.: Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (for "Noel"), banner punch
I stamped off the Crumb Cake before stamping on the CS for a lighter shade. I did the same thing for the bow using Island Indigo. I put a piece of Pool Party CS under the vellum banner strip.
Now to clean up my stamp room and start addressing envelopes. :)
This isn't a formal hop. When people want to link up, they can. You can check HERE throughout the weekend to see what has been shared.
