I decided to make a Christmas card in advance as I'm trying to collect some b/f the rush. When I saw the stamped heart, I decided to use an ornament with a dasher stamp in the center.
I heat embossed Dasher and then sprinkled DD around him on the ornament and added some red pearls and a sparkly brad. I then used 2 nesties to adorn the ornament framelit. I embossed the nestie b/hind the ornament with a reindeer ef as well as the chocolate chip cardstock behind. I lightly sponged the oval nestie and placed some sparkle dots around it. The dsp on the bottom is from a SU Christmas pack, but I can't remember the name. It is flocked brown and white paper. I LOVE flocked paper.
I added an ornament framelit sentiment at the bottom to which I adhered a sentiment, tiny tags, using the jewelry tag punch and added a small silver bell. Used cherry cobbler seam ribbon b/t the layers.
The ornament framelit was doubled with dimensionals b/t them, then the whole ornament was popped up with dimensionals as was the sentiment.
I think that about rounds it up. Nancy, your gallery is AMAZING and full of ideas. I was trying to make a SUO card, but sadly failed. I will be using the image inside a punch technique for a lot of different cards.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Should I start choosing my Christmas card now for next Christmas? You know we love to do that and this is high on the list already. I love Dasher in the ornament. Pretty embossing with the reindeer and awesome paper at the bottom. Of course, I love the sparkle. Super card!!!!

Madam Fruitcake, this is fabulous! I love your embossed reindeer in the background to coordinate so beautifully with your Dasher. Although I have to share that I am a tad green with envy that you have such a massive head start on Christmas cards. Sigh. Hugz to you Pamzi! Think of you often and it always makes me smile.

Pamzi this is just gorgeous. I love that reindeer embossing folder and how you incorporated it to go with your main focal point. Lucky you off to a roaring start for your Christmas cards this year. I need to do that. Love that sparkle. So pretty.

I will have to try these colors on a Christmas card. Your nesties look beautiful, Pam, and the senti over the small ornament/lightbulb is so cute! A perfect ef, use of glitter (not over-powering), and the pretty brad & gems all add up to one gorgeous card~
