Sunny Studio Stamps: Holiday Style and Christmas Chapel Christmas Ornament Card by Nancy Damiano

Hey everyone, Nancy here! To create this card use the Holiday Style stamp set to create the illusion of a wreath all around the edges of the background. Using 2-3 shades of green pigment ink gives a textured and dimensional effect to the stamping. Next, stamp three Christmas ornaments randomly in the center of the card using the layered stamps to create a bit of shading. Don't forget to stamp the hangers and draw in the hooks! Personalize the ornaments with a scrip sentiment in glittery silver ink. 

Sunny Studio Stamps: Holiday Style and Christmas Chapel Christmas Ornament Card by Nancy Damiano

To fill in some of the white space and tie all of the elements together, stamp the shining stars from the Christmas Chapel stamp set randomly in the center of the card in a nice, buttery yellow ink. Last, the bold sentiment from the Holiday Style stamp set gives a warm greeting, while a scattering of sequins gives us some shine!
