Ornament Keepsakes Card !

Good Morning ! 
Hope your Christmas preparations are going well ? I seem better organised this year and am looking forward to getting the tree up at the weekend ! I have been having a play with a lovely stamp set which was carried over from last years Seasonal catalogue and is still available called Ornament Keepsakes . Like every crafter I am influenced and inspired by other designers work but I usually design 99% of what I do from scratch ! However , this card , which you will have seen so many times as it has been made over and over, really caught my eye so I wanted to make my own version ! Apologies - I have seen so many versions I can't acknowledge the original designer ! 

I double stamped and used dimensionals to give a shadow effect to the baubles and added lots of sparkle and bling ! I sketched in the string using a gold and silver gel pen ! The branches were stamped using the pine tree from Lovely as a Tree ! My baubles are stamped in summer starfruit , soft sky , pool party and marina mist all on whisper white card and mounted on soft sky car stock . 
I'm planning to make a star and snowflake twinkly garland today - lots of die cutting !!! 
Happy crafting - hugs Jane xx
