Pop Out Ornament

Hi Stampers,

This blog is going to drive crazy!!! I had a whole tutorial done on this card and it has given me so much trouble that I am only showing the finished card.
I started with 2 pieces of Wild Wasabi cut to 8 1/2 x 5 and scored. I used the Top Score Board and on the second piece also scored for the Gatefold. Then fold it in a W. Using the Nestibilities I Cut out the center for the inside of the card. I also took a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Purely Pomegrante and cut out a scallop frame. I saved the piece that I cut the frame out of for the background on the front. For the center I used these new Acrylic Ornaments that have etching on them, from Sparkle n Sprinkle. I used the Versamarker and inked just the center flower and embossed with Cordial Red EP, then I used the marker again and did the outline in the center and embossed it with Irish Spring EP, then I coated the whole ornament with Versamark pad and embossed with Halo EP.
For the front I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the background. The verse is from Sparkle n Sprinkle also, and I embossed it with Cordial Red, and layered it on a scalloped Wild Wasabi, then on the Purely Pomegrante from the center of the frame I cut for the center of the card.
I will upload more pictures tomorrow, to show more detail.

Have a stampingly great day!

What pretty cards!...and what a great fold for your designs. I really like how the ornament is hanging there and the sentiment on the front is very pretty with the layers too!
