Red and White Ornament Card



The challenge at Bloggers Challenge was ornaments. I guess this may be a bit of a stretch, but I used an ornament as the focal image on a card. It is a swing card and the ornament does hang on the card. It's fun to twist the ornament around several times and watch a person's expression as he/she opens the card and the ornament spins around. The color choice was based on the Play Date Cafe color challenge of red and white. I wish you could see the paper in person. The red ornament is made from very shiny metallic cardstock. The white is paper I received from Paper Temptress. It is absolutely luscious. The base card is some red shimmery cardstock I had in my stash.
This card also fits the Created By Hand challenge. The theme is Christmas countdown. To me the hanging of Christmas decorations definitely denotes the countdown to Christmas.
