I’ve had this card in my head for a week or so but just couldn’t quite finalise it to get to my Paper Pumpkin February 2017 Alternative 2. The “ornament” is actually the candle flame from the kit and thus I’ve actually made a Christmas card in March! I liked the ornament on cherry cobbler but wanted my sentiment in ink rather than heat embossing because the gold embossing powder doesn’t match the ornament. Hence this layout was created.
The gold thread is held onto the ornament with a glue dot and then wrapped under the cherry cobbler piece and secured there. There’s a slight bump where it goes under the cherry cobbler, but it’s minor. I then popped the ornament up with dimensionals and added a bow with another glue dot. Before constructing the card, I stamped my sentiment from Embellished Ornaments because the extra layer would have messed up the stamp-a-ma-jig – and of course, it’s better to do the sentiment early so that you can flip the cardstock over if necessary!
I glued the cherry cobbler piece to my very vanilla layer, standing them up on my desk so that I could be certain that they were lined up properly. Then I added this to a cherry cobbler card base.
