2014 Holdiay Card Series Card 1

This is the first card in my 2014 Christmas/Holiday Series.   I made this card to have the ladies at the assisted living facility make in their card class this week.     

This is a beautiful card that is sooooo easy to make.  Unfortunately, I don't believe these stamps are still available, but I do love them.  I think this card can easily be recreated using similar stamps. I'll make one and post it here.

I stamped the scrollwork in black across the top of the card. Then I stamped the ornaments in Goldrush, New England Ivy, and Ruby.                                                              

The Merry Christmas sentiment is also stamped in black on a white daisy shape I cut from the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  I cut the White Daisy at 2.25 and the Ruby layer at 2.5.
I layered the White Daisy directly to the Ruby and then raised them up with 3-D Foam tape.  I embellished the card with clear sparkles, but I think Bitty Sparkles would do better.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Goldrush, New England Ivy, and Ruby. The layers were placed directly to the inside of the card.
