Versatile Sparkly Seasons Stamp Set

Even this chevron-printed circle is versatile! I used it for a pumpkin several posts ago. This time it's an ornament. I keep wondering if I should have ordered the bundle, but I'm managing just fine without it.

The ornament topper with its hook is stamped on a piece of a Silver Foil Sheet and fussy-cut. To get inside the hook, I used a hole punch. The Christmas tree branch is actually the top of the evergreen in the Lovely As a Tree stamp set, which I've had forever, since well before it was available as a clear mount set. I added the ornament bulb last, using Stampin' Dimensionals to make it pop.

Admittedly, I was a little disappointed when I realized the Boughs &; Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was larger than a normal card size (4-1/2" x 6-3/16"), but I didn't worry when my card layer didn't quite reach the bottom of the folder. If I make this card again, I won't put it on a Whisper White card base; I'd simply make the card itself Cherry Cobbler.
