Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree

Sharing a CAS Christmas card I’ve made featuring Christmas Ornaments dies from Joy! Crafts and stamps from a pair of Stampin’ Up! sets.

The layout of my card follows the sketch at Christmas Card Throwdown.  I’ve used ornament die cuts for the three star elements and added in some hangers from the Embellished Ornaments set from Stampin’ Up!.

Rather than placing the sentiment on a banner I’ve inverted the V shape with a holly and berry stamp from another Stampin’ Up! set, Hang Your Stocking.  The sentiment is from the same set, which I embossed in gold to match the gold embossing on the ornaments.

Over at ABC Christmas they are looking for old or new items on your project.  My stamps are new; both sets got inked for the first time on this card and arrived in my Stampin’ Up! order from last month.  The dies are old; they’ve been in my stash for a couple of years.

I’m also entering my card in the current ‘Christmas in July’ challenge at My Time to Craft.
