MERRY ornaments Christmas cards

Here's a pair of very MERRY ornaments Christmas cards.

No colouring,
OK, just a little, with a Wink Of Stella glitter brush,
no die cutting, 
... I let my Silhouette Cameo do all (most) of the work,
with me gathering my glue to assemble the pieces.


No, you're not seeing things, they are different greens.  I had several part sheets from earlier projects and thought I would use them both, then decide which green I preferred before I head off to make some more.

The only change I made to these cards (apart from enlarging) was to add a backing panel to the die cut front.  This was so I could write inside without the look of the card being spoilt by handwriting being visible between the design elements of the front.  I also added a matting layer inside, apart from looking nicer, it makes it sturdier when standing up too.


The white snowflake decorations for the ornaments looked a bit stark against the red, so I smothered them with a Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush.  It worked a treat, muting the white and adding a luscious sparkle too.
