Card Set: Embellished Ornaments – Island Indigo

I decided to make a Christmas card set I can give away as gifts or sell at the Tofield Farmers Market on November 13th using the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Delicate Ornament thinlit dies I just received yesterday. I was thinking 7 identical, just different colors, cards put in a cute card box should be plenty.

Embellished Ornaments in Island Indigo

Embellished Ornaments Island Indigo - FrontEmbellished Ornaments Island Indigo - InsideThe only ink pad I used for this version was Island Indigo. I was planning on making a Rich Razzleberry, Real Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, and Night Of Navy version then put them all in a cute card box with the pairing envelopes inside as well.

I wanted a few different textures and patterns on the card front since I wasn’t using any embellishments or accessories on it at all.

Embellished Ornaments Island Indigo - SideI ran the Early Espresso background through the Big Shot machine with the Boho Chic embossing folder to give it that textured look. I cheated a bit and used the one edge of the Artisan Label punch to give the bottom of the Island Indigo piece some pizzazz. For the Whisper White card stock strip, I just stamped it with the dots from the Watercolor Wings stamp set.

I put little details on the inside as well to match the card front. I used the Small Scallop cutting blade to make the little strip of Early Espresso pop out a bit more.
