Holiday Ornaments Cards with Elena

Hello crafters. This is Elena sharing a trio of Simple Christmas Cards. December is officially here and we are busy with Christmas preparations, so making simple cards is an option to get several cards at once.

For my cards I used Square Textured Card Blanks approx 5 ¼ x 5 ¼” size. This time I used Gilded Ornaments Dies from the Holiday 2017 collection.

I didn’t cut the whole circle only the ornament motif (insert) through the card base directly creating a window card. I like the secret frame it creates, and I put a circle made from the same set inside the card for a visual dimension.

For 2 of my cards I used the same dots grey paper. The only thing that differs these cads is the insert used, there are 3 different inserts in the Ornaments set, so I used one for each of my cards and and I mixed pearls and crystals to embellish the ornaments.

I topped it with a die cut bow and a crystal. And placed the pearls on the arches of the ornament. For my third card I used dark blue pearls and the snowflake patterned paper inside

I used the same sentiment for my cards, stamped t in black and placed one of it on a foam pad.

Elena Olinevich

I am Elena Olinevich from Belarus (Eastern Europe). I have always been a creative person since I was a child. Then it was a long period when I have been busy with sales and marketing industry, and only after my first child was born I realized that I needed something more.
I have become a full time artist and scrapbooker in 2010 and I am very happy that I decided to change my life. My crafty job brings me more than only the joy and self-esteem. It provides me with the supportive followers, talented students and teaching the classes allow me to travel around the world.
I started as a cardmaker, but at the moment I can say that I am all kind of scrapbooker as I love fussy cutting, papercraft, mixed media with a sense to details and layering, my distinctive feature.
