3D Ornament Punch Art Hand-Stamped card

As Thanksgiving approaches, I prepare for the weekend after Thanksgiving!  I adore decorating for the holidays and pulling out the boxes of nativity scenes and ornaments is definitely a highlight to this season!  Creating a hand-stamped 3D Punch Art Ornament card is a fun way to add whimsy to any Christmas card!

Create this fun card with these items:
Crumb Cake card stock (#120953)
Very Vanilla card stock (#101650)
Cherry Cobbler ink (#126966)
Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack (#132181) only $6.95~WOW!!
Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine (#123125)
Rhinestone Jewels (#119246)
Perfectly You Hostess Stamp Set (#131877)
1-3/4" Circle Punch (#119850)
Stylish Stripes embossing folder (#132174)
Hearts A Flutter framelits (#130159)
Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439)
Big Shot Magnetic Platform (#130658)
Hot Glue
Score this Crumb Cake card stock but do not bone.  Run the scored sheet and the Stylish Stripes embossing folder through the Big Shot for this cute striped background texture.
 
Stamp this Merry Christmas to You banner stamp from the Perfectly You stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Cut out with the Hearts A Flutter framelits, Big Shot and the Big Shot Magnetic Platform for precision cutting (easy peasy)!
Punch 6 circles from this sheet of double sided Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack.  This  will be the same paper but the two sides.  Fold three facing one way, three the other (but make the 'lines' meet up so they are straight - this makes it easy for lining up!).
 
HOT GLUE is HOT!!  Caution!
OK so taking my Hot Glue Gun, these circles and the staggered cut Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, the Merry Christmas Punched banner... I adhere the banner first.  I then staggered the Baker's twine for a balanced ornament look.  Use a SMALL amount to hold do the Baker's Twine and it will keep it taunt.
 
Adhere the halves of the folded circles together - this will create a fun 3D ornament.  Hot glue it over the Baker's Twine for this hanging ornament look.
They WILL Be 3D!  LOVE IT!!  OK so I did add a dash of bling with our adhesive backed Rhinestones on the banner flag and the ends of the ornaments.  It is a clean and fun little card that is pretty easy to create when you break it down.
 
You cannnn mail it!  The secret is to either flip the card over so the back covers the front of the ornaments.  They will lay semi-flat and will pop up when opened.  If you don't want so send this 'inside out'... just add a piece of card stock to the front and it will protect it from the mailing machines!
Neutral, simple but fun... this card is ideal for all who love the season!
 
I'm blessed that you came by today!  Please come and visit often.  I try to post daily and hope you will visit... bring your family and friends with you!
 
As you remember decorating trees as a child... to doing so with your family now... from grand trees to Charlie Brown trees... ornaments can be the symbol of holiday joy!  Send a hand-stamped Christmas card with a fun 3D Punch Art element and WOW them with your style and mad skills - lol.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
