15% OFF STAMP SETS THRU OCTOBER 23, 2015--See Oct. 19 post for the details.

Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies   
A Cardinal Christmas-this is an old set I had that I used for the greeting.  You could use anything-just adjust the size of the card stock to fit.
Holiday Ornaments Framelits-These were old ones that I had.  There is a new set called Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies that would work great.  (I do not have the new set)

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White card stock--This is the base.  Score at 4 1/4 & fold your card.                      
5 1/4 x 4" Soft Sky card stock                                                                                                                   
5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White card stock--emboss with the Soft Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.                                                                                                     
1 x 2 1/2 Whisper White card stock-for greeting                                                                                    
1 1/8 x 2 5/8 Soft Sky-this goes behind the greeting.                                                                               

Cut your ornament out of the Soft Sky cs-this saves on paper & the weight of the card.

You will need a scrap of white cs. & Garden Green card stock to cut out the trees & horse.

The ornament on the left -- I just laid down the trees--then lay the horse on top.  This way you can see how it will all fit.  Take the horse off & glue down the trees.  Then turn it over & trim off the extra green.  

Middle ornament I glued down the horse & sleigh.-- Turn it over & trim off the extra.  Do you notice how the bottom of the ornament is showing?  I did not worry about this because on the last ornament you see how the greeting is covering it.   If you did not put a greeting or it was in a different place make sure that you used bigger pieces when cutting.  You would not want it to show then.

I used silver foil card stock & cut out the top or cap for the ornament.  I put it on with a glue dot.  Silver Cording Trim was used to make a small bow.  I attached it with a glue dot.

Use glue dots to attach the ornament to the white embossed card stock.  Sometimes it is hard to get tape or glue to stick because of the embossing.

Happy Stampin
