Delightful Ornaments

I have to say that the Delightful Decorations stamp set was the first on my wish list when the new catalogue came out this month. I just fell in love with it, thinking it would be perfect for Christmas cards, tags and decorations. I finally got a chance to play with it & here is the result...

I just love this neutral colour combination of Soft Suede (I think it could actually take over as my favourite colour from Chocolate Chip), Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. I'm not a real fan of the traditional Christmas colours of red and green.

I think the ornaments look great resting on the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder impression, teamed with the also elegant Many Merry Messages sentiments and detailed with half pearls and gold brads. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, isn't it? :)

Love the colors and the cards. One of my favorite and want to use it for Christmas this year. Talk to me about the ribbon you used (please).

Andrea said...

Azoerner, thank you for your comment. In response to your question, I didn't use any ribbon at all. I used very thin strips of cardboard. I hope this helps!
