Here is a 5 minute card I peeked at our release using Gina K's new Warm and Cozy Christmas. I die cut an ornament from Real Red CS using a Classic Circle Nestabilitie and then stamped my image with White Craft. I used the white pencil technique (I used a Koh-i-Noor instead of Prismacolor, and I had to put mine on red!) to shade just the left underside of each part of the image, and then sponged white craft around the edge to give the ball a bit of a frost and some depth. The ornament hanger is made with the SU! Round tab Punch and Threading Water punch in Brushed Silver CS, and a little loop of Gold Pure Luxury Cording and Pure Luxury Ribbon (love how the gold edge on the ribbon is a perfect match to the cord). "Merry" is stamped in Real Red inside the loop to highlight my greeting.
Very simple to make a bunch of when you're getting ready for the holidays!
Have a great day! :)
