Most of the ornaments on my Christmas tree are home made and I love them. None of them look like the ones on my card for Merry Monday
. These look more like some of the old ones that I got from my parents.
Using a set from SSS, I heat embossed the ornaments with some discontinued powders from the craft department at my local grocery store. They're not the best but they did give that antique look that I was going for. The background looked a little plain so I stamped the stars from the CP Stamp of Approval box in Delicata Gold. Gold thread hangs the ornaments above the My Craft Spot sentiment.
ETA: This card won a honorable mention at Merry Monday.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope your weekend is going well.

Stunning.. I love the embossed ornaments and the antique look you nailed it. Thank you for joining us over at Merry Monday this week.ReplyDelete
They had embossing powder at your grocery store? Must have been Walmart.....or Meijer. But I have never seen it at either of those. Anyway....I love your background here, it really makes those ornaments POP!!! Great color choices too, this is just a wonderful card!ReplyDelete
It was at Meijer, Judy, but I don't think they carry it any more. It's not that great of embossing powder.Delete
Absolutely gorgeous Bobby. Love the blingy ornament colours and those gold stars finish this card off perfectly. It's a winner!ReplyDelete
Love these "antique" ornaments, Bobby! The gold stars make this card extra pretty!ReplyDelete
Shimmery, sparkly baubles, Bobby ... with a yummy retro twist ... they're fabulous set amidst all those gold stars! Fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)ReplyDelete
