This card idea came from a presentation at convention (I think it was Bonnie’s).

She was showing us the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set and matching Framelits in the Holiday Catalog.  On this particular card she used mulitple pieces from the set and showed us how to stamp them and set it up so we could cut everything with one pass through the Big Shot.

When you are at convention (or other events) they show what the person is doing by putting it up on a  screen and if you want a picture of it you have to be fast before they change it or they move on to something else.  So needless to say the pictures aren’t usually the greatest and so looking back at them later I have to remember why did I want a picture of that.  So while this isn’t the greatest picture it does show you what I’m talking about for setting up this card.  You want a strip of card stock that you are going to stamp all the images on and glue the small piece of Designer Series paper on one end.  Then layout out all the framelits and cut everything.

The circle is punched out with a circle punch – I used a 1″ punch and a different stamp than what Bonnie used.  And my card is similar but not exactly the same.  I wanted to also show the piercing templates – so there is piercing around the card (but not through the greeting) and also around the designer paper ornament.

This month you can get the Festive Piercing Template pack (which includes the template that matches these ornaments) if you purchase the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set (or stamp/framelit bundle) plus the Candlelight Christmas Designer Series paper.  More information is on my website –

Have a great day!
