Deck the Halls!

Good afternoon friends! I hope you are doing well today. We've had a fast moving day, and with it getting dark so early, here in the northwest....well, I feel like we should be getting into pjs and it's only 3:57! So, here's to a few more productive hours!!

This card I'm sharing today, was the card I made for the LAD sketch challenge last week, and thought I'd posted it already, but nope, it wasn't even photographed yet. So, here is my take on the sketch you can see here,in the LAD forum. I think this might be a card I make a few more of...it makes me smile!
I started off by making my card base. I used some Chocolate Chip cardstock, then a layer of Aqua Mist, and lastly a layer of a great polka dot paper from Cosmo Cricket. I stamped my ornaments from the Deck the Halls stamp set, onto Very Vanilla paper with some Ruby Red, Aqua Mist and Ripe Avacado ink. I stamped the ornaments twice, one onto the rectangle of paper, and then again on a scrap piece. I stamped my ornament hanger--or ribbon, with Chocolate Chip ink, and then added the second ornament that I had cut out, with dimensionals.
A little vintage button on each ornament with mini glue dot finihsed the ornaments up just right!

I stamped my sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink onto Vanilla paper. I used my word window punch to punch the 'Deck the Halls' out, then attached it to a Ruby Red modern label punch.

This went so fast and would be a great card to mass produce....so I think I'll bust out a few more!! Have a great evening friends!! Thanks for stopping by today!!
