When Is A Card Not A Card?

When it’s an ornament!

Peace Card

Wait…it’s an ornament in a holder?

Peace Card

No, it’s a card.

Peace Card

World Map Background Stamp #130342
Wonderful Blessing single stamp #134779

Naturals White card stock
Midnight Muse card stock
Vellum card stock
Silver Glimmer Paper

Midnight Muse Classic Stamp Pad

Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder
Heat Tool
Circles Collection Framelits Dies #130911
Midnight Muse 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon
Stampin’ Dimensionals

Ink the World Map background stamp in Midnight Muse ink and stamp it off two or three times before applying to the Naturals White card stock. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to layer the stamped map piece onto the Midnight Muse card stock base. Leave the top mostly open so the ornament can slide in and out.

To achieve the colored/embossed image on the vellum layer, ink the Wonderful Blessing stamp in Versamark and apply Midnight Muse ink right on top of that before stamping onto the Vellum card stock. Quickly heat emboss using Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Use the Circle Framelits and Silver Glimmer Paper to frame the opening in the card and on the ornament.

Finish it off with Midnight Muse 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon. This project was designed by Alanna Wharf, a member of Stampin’ Up!’s Artisan Design Team.
