I like the sketch - it can be simple or dressed up, but I decided to let the pretty Christmas ornaments shine! I was inspired to use primary colours by the challenge at Inkspirational - INK#116 and I'm playing along with Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#209 where the theme is CAS.
To create the centre ornaments which have some sparkle, I first inked with Versamark and then the colour, stamped the image and heat embossed with iridescent embossing powder - I do love this look. For the remaining ornaments I simply stamped the coloured image. I used the matching punch to cut out the ornaments. I used the MISTI to stamp the sentiment - it makes stamping multiple images so easy - they are all perfectly lined up! I adhered the two plain ornaments flat to the card and used dimensional gel to attached the sparkly ornament. On the inside I cut mat layers to match the ink used and on the white panel added a greeting and some snowflakes.
I think I might make some more cards based on this design - it's quick, it's easy and it'll mail easily too. Here's a photo of all the cards together:
