2012 Christmas Card? Maybe....

Been playing around trying to come up with my Christmas cards for this year. I don't usually do traditional....this year I had papers in blues, lavender, and purples. I thought this look really this might be the winner!

I used glitter paper for the ornaments. They cut out great using the dies from My Creative Time. The tiny tops and hooks cut much nicer using the metal shim that Emma also sells in her store. I didn't have much trouble before using that, but it did make a difference and they came out easier and cleaner...they are quite tiny!

I used the Fancy Frame Stamp and Die Set for my sentiment. I just didn't use the stamp part. I cut a second one, cut it in half at the center and trimmed off the parts that would show from behind. Then layered it just on the ends, for that little pop of color. First though, I tied my ribbon around the base layer. I put the ornaments and sentiment up on dimensional adhesive.

Aren't the ornaments pretty?! I think real, they are so sparkly! I'm thinking I like how this came out and it just be the winner for this year. What do  you think? Do you traditional or non traditional colors for Christmas? Change it up this year, do something that maybe you wouldn't normally might surprise yourself!
