12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by the "Inspiration Crew".
We're just a group of online crafty blog friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.
We're making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes. Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.
We hope you have enjoyed the last week of Holiday Inspiration. We have 5 more days left so there's still plenty of time to inspire your Holiday crafting. Today I created a simple card. For the card base and card top I used Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain cardstock. This cardstock is gorgeous - thick. 111 lb., and textured and so pretty for a background. I die-cut a few ornaments from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Heirloom Ornaments dies. I layered two on my card, popping one of them up for dimension ...

 
 I used some lovely gold ribbon to "hang" the ornaments and added a few sequins. I embossed the sentiment on another piece of the woodgrain cardstock. The embossing came out great on the textured cardstock. Here's a side view of the card to show how popping up the top layer adds more dimension to the card ...

 
Thanks for stopping by today and as usual please stop by the blogs below for more Holiday fun. We will be back tomorrow so stay tuned and thanks for all your support for this Holiday Event!!
