Designers Choice Challenge - Christmas in July!

It's What If? Wednesday at The House that Stamps Built and Makiko's Designer Choice Challenge is "Christmas in July". Make a holiday card and link it up for a chance to win a great prize from Repeat Impressions! For all the details and to see the rest of the Rock Stars' cards for inspiration, please visit the blog.

I used the Glitter Star Ornament and Peace, Love and Harmony stamps on my card. I embossed the ornament in gold and cut out. I cut a hole in the white front piece and the green card with my nesties and the ornament is hanging from a thread attached in between the two pieces. I stamped the Peace Love and Harmony stamp repeatedly on the front white piece, wiping a little of the ink off each time with a baby wipe so some of it was lighter than the rest. The band is a Starform sticker placed on two sided tape that held fine red glitter.

This is how the card looks with the ornament hanging free. I am entering this card in the Christmas challenge at Crafty Sentiments.
