Our Hostess for July is Carol, and she challenged us to make a Christmas card OR Project. OK, well, as I am sorting out my craft room, I pulled out this stamp and it is in the sell box.... I decided to get it out and USE it!
This ornament is 2 sided.... I had to stamp the image 10 times....I did not stamp the entire image as I got into the smaller areas. I fussy cut 8 of the layers.... : ) The image is made by Holly Berry House.
I started with the back layer- covered it with Barn Door Distress Ink. On the edges, I outlined the edge and added Poppy Jasper glitter by PKGlitz.com. And, I am very sparkly : )
I painted Iridescent Medium on the top of the next layer. Next, I added glue and Oyster Art Institute Glitter. The next layer is the one with the hearts- I added glue to the hearts and Poppy glitter. The top layer has Iridescent Medium, and a decorative brad from Spare Parts/Paper Studio.
I repeated this for the other side- and did I mention, there is a layer of dimensionals between each layer. Once both layers are complete, add dimensionals to the center of one of the backs, and a layer of glue all around the outside edges. Place the ribbon down flat after folding down in half and use Sticky glue dots multiple times- where the ribbon meets the paper, in between ribbon layers and on the other side too. Tie a bow and I put a sticky dot to the back of the bow and attach it to the ornament.
