Retro Ornaments for The Card Concept


Hi everyone!  Wow, it's Wednesday already--the week is flying by!  I have been seeing fabulous creations using The Card Concept's gorgeous inspiration photo:


and I just had to jump on the bandwagon!  I had some pretty papers from Kaisercraft called Silver Bells, and they seemed perfect for the challenge; I would identify this as the "Clean and Layered" style:


My card base is 4 1/4" square, but I extended the fussy-cut ornaments above the fold, as it will still ft into a standard-sized envelope!  When I created this card at about 10pm at night, the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock looked like a match, but I see in my photo, the pinks are a little different...still, it's almost a match!  Aren't these silver-embossed baubles beautiful?


The musical background paper is from the same pad, and the silver embossed sentiment is from this month's Paper Pumpkin...just love that little set!  I used another ornament for the inside, along with a sentiment from Christmas Pines, also embossed in silver:


Sparkly is right!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

John Deere girl!  And what an ornery grin!

Absolutely gorgeous! I used to have all my ornaments in similar styles and colors. It was very victorian looking and fit well with the theme of our decor at that time. Thank you so much for joining in with The Card Concept this week! Please come back and join us for the last challenge of 2017 on December 6th.

Those ornaments look almost real and your layering is perfect. Great card! Ornery? Maybe a cute, lovable ornery? She looks like she could be casted for a TV show.

Such a stunner! I wondered how you'd made those baubles look so 3D but the fussy cutting and layering show them off so well. Having them come off the page is genius. Kaisercraft have such beautiful papers.
