Is It The 6th Day of Christmas ALREADY??!!

Well, yes it is.....we are already half-way through our 12 Days of Christmas! I don't want it to end...it's been so much fun sharing some Christmas cheer with all of you! So..... on the 6th Day of Christmas, you get...ornaments! Close To My Heart carries these fun Dimensional Elements (chipboard) ornament sheets that are so versatile! I created the card below using one of the larger ornaments on the sheet. I sponged the ornament with Desert Sand ink, then added Bonding Memories glue, and sprinkled Prisma Glitter all over the ornament! By sponging the chipboard first, you get a sort of "vintage", "antique" look to the glitter!

So these great little ornaments a can be a wonderful addition to a greeting card or a scrapbook page....or....
You can actually create personalized ornaments to hang on your tree! The ornaments have two pieces...and solid back piece, then the decorative front piece to glue on top of the back. As you can see below, I added photos to two of the ornaments.

I sponged the top pieces with Cranberry or Garden Green or New England Ivy inks...that seems to be the fastest, easiest way to add color to the ornaments (they come white). But, you could paint them, cover them with cardstock or B&T (printed) papers, stamp on them, etc. The possibilities are endless! On some of the ornaments, I put B&T paper on the backing piece, so it shows through.
I also added some stamped images, ribbon bows, a poinsettia brad from the Mistletoe embellishement assortment, and some of our adorable Pearl Opaques Adhesive Gems for some added "blingage". Hang with a ribbon or string, and you are good to go!
The ornaments would make cute tags on a gift, as well! And at $4.95 for 6 ornaments on a sheet...that's a good deal!
Happy Ornament-Making!
