3-D ornament card

I've had the idea for this card in my brain for several weeks but hadn't found time to sit down and do it. I was at a craft fair last week and during a lull I put it together. I loved it, so did a customer and she bought it before I thought to take a picture. I know this one isn't the same because I didn't have my embossing gun with me at the craft fair but it's pretty close. I used Real Red and the Brushed Silver cardstock. The sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings set. I like the way the silver embossed looks on the silver cardstock. The ornaments are from the Delightful Decorations set. That's the one I love with the matching punch that makes it so fast. I stamped and punched 9 in all, 7 for the 3-D part and the other 2, one has a rhinestone brad in the center and the other is mounted on Stampin' Dimentionals to raise it up a little. I guess you could send it in an envelope but the receiver would have to poof it back up. It would be great as a tag on a gift. Hey, I'll be back in a minute, gotta run with that idea!

OK, I'm back. I got a gift tag made and pictures taken so I can post it also. I used the Brushed Silver cardstock again and cut out the tag from the Two Tags die. I stamped all the Delightful Decorations on white with Real Red ink. I tied a piece of elastic silver cord around the "To: From" tag and another on the 3-D ornament once I got them all stuck together. Now I have to find a very special gift to put this tag on!

Those of you who know me know that I pretty much always procrastinate and I hate to go shopping, especially when there are tons of people out like there always are in Dec. I like to go at 6AM when there aren't many people out. I am making quite a few of my Christmas presents (in my spare time) so hopefully I can get the actual shopping over with soon. I've been throwing logs on the fire these days since it has been getting down into the lower 20's and teens here lately. We have been having Jan/Feb weather lately! That's another thing I don't like, cold weather. Burrrr!

I love that punch and stamp set, you've shown so many ways to use it, I can tell you don't like it much, huh? I love the to/from card.
