Simple Ornament

I'm sitting here listening to the rain off the roof of the back porch. It sounds lovely considering normally this time of year it's hot and dry. Every once in a while I jump from the sound of thunder. Hasn't happened in a while...so maybe that part of the storm has passed.

It's this kind of weather that reminds me the winter holidays are just around the corner. We'll all be going to holiday parties, entertaining, gift shopping and many other winter activities. For those of us that make our own cards, our art gets put aside while we enjoy the winter months. We don't always have time to sit down and make that personal card.

This card is something simple that can be done in a flash. A quick embossing and punch and you're on your way. I used one of my favorites, the Swirled Ornament, for this card. I embossed the background with one of the Winter Wonderland embossing folders and punched with a scalloped punch. On the bottom I scored 2 lines half inch apart and poped the ornament up. I really like the white on white look. The blue ribbon was tied using the bow maker part of the Ultimate from Crafters Companion.
