Classy Cards N Such - Color Burst Ornament

Good Morning,  Friends.   I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.   It was great having 
the family over and as usual,  I ate way too much Pumpkin Pie Cake.  Yes, I had whip cream with it, 
also.    ~grin~

 I have made an unusual card for Classy Cards N Such to share with you today.  This is the first orange and  purple Christmas card I have ever made, but I must say I like it.   Okay, what do you think?

I started with a white card base.  I cut a piece of white and used Ken Oliver Color Bursts in OrangeUltramarine Blue and Violet for the next layer.  Then color bursts are real easy to use.  I just sprinkle and spritz.  There are many tutorials on You Tube that will show you step by step how to use them.   I then cut a top layer and used the Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One to cut the open space so the color burst would show.  

I used the Memory Box Lydia Ornament die with white card stock and placed a piece of the Color Burst paper that I had left over to layer behind the ornament.  I cut a piece of silver card stock to make the hanger for the ornament.   Next I used some orange ribbon for the bow.

I used the Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments and chose the  Season's Greetings stamp to use on the bottom of my card.  I used Silver Detail embossing powder to emboss the sentiment.

The highlighted items came from the Classy Cards N Such store.   Be sure and check out the store, Beverly might have something special going on today.   If not, you can always use the code Shirley-10 for a ten percent discount. 

Thank you, for stopping by today and we hope to see you here again soon.  If your out there doing Black Friday shopping, be careful and I hope you find lots of bargains.   Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Wow, such a totally different look with these colors, but it kind of looks the way a brightly lit tree would look, when viewing it "out of focus" - I LIKE IT TOO!! Very cool!! That is certainly a neat way to change up a card and give it new insight!
