Guess what??????? SURPRISE!! It's not a card! Woo hoo!
I actually made a multi-layered ornament for my tree.  Although it is colored with distress inks in an ombre fashion, (darkest on the bottom layer and lightest on the top) it did not show well on camera. 

Here's a closeup of my ornament. The single stamp used to create this snowflake is Holly House Originals - Breckenridge Snow Diamond. I stamped it 7 times and cut out different aspects to create the layers. The bling on all layers of the ornament really makes it sparkle and shine. It's my fav part!

Santa loves my ornament and wanted to tell you so himself. Ho! Ho! Ho! 

And here's a tip for ya! To make sure your ornament hangs properly, use a tiny attacher to connect your ribbon pieces before adhering the ribbon loop to your ornament. Once it's attached, twist the ribbon into place and staple it once more to make sure it will always show in the front position.


  • Holly House Originals - Breckenridge Snow Diamond
  • Ranger Archival Ink - jet black
  • Recollections - 110 lb white cardstock
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Broken China
  • Nicole Heat tool
  • Elizabeth Crafts spring action (fussy cut) scissors
  • Glamour Glitz - crystal oval hotfix 8mm x 4mm (bling)
  • Sparkle style Acrylic gems - 6mm round cab crystal
  • Glossy Accents
  • American crafts ribbon
  • Tim Holtz tiny attacher, round ink blending tool
  • Terrifically Tacky Tape
  • The Paper Studio - round foam tape

I just LOVE the dimension! Don't you? Each layer is raised on foam tape.
