I have a nostalgic Christmas card for you today from our “Memories of Home” set on page 33 of our Holiday catalog. I chose not to purchase the bundle Christmas Gleaming this time because I really loved this tree and the great fonts and sayings more in the Memories of Home set. I still bought the Gleaming ornament punch pack. The smaller ornament stamp is in this set too. I have made other cards with the larger ornament punch, by just punching our our designer paper or punching out foil.
I had fun coloring the ornaments just like the one’s my Mom used to have on our tree when I was growing up. Back then everything wasn’t so designer or one color theme like the trees are today.
I stamped the smaller ornament and colored it and put our Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel dots on the ornaments for a bit of bling. Read on for Instructions and Supplies
