Home for the Holidays-Ornament

I've been in such a creative mood lately. I think it's mainly because I love making Christmas Cards and also because Close to my Heart Has so many fabulous Christmas stamps in their catalog this year. 

This stamp set is actually the October Stamp of the Month called Home for the Holidays. This card is the first of three cards my Hostess Club will be making this month.

The paper used is from the Yuletide Carol Paper Pack. The background was dry embossed. 

The Merry Christmas is from one of the stamp sets that come with the NEW Close to my Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridge, Artfully Sent. The bow was make form the Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon.
And, of course, what's a Christmas Card without Glitter!!!

The inspiration for this card started with a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I chose not to cut off the left side of the oval because it is a card that my club will be making and I wanted to simplify the making of the card.
