Clean and Simple - Elegant Ornament Card

I LOVE clean and simple cards!

Sometimes you just need a little white space, ya' know?
I received the Midnight Muse version of this card in my Founder's Circle swap, I think it was designed by my friend Patty Chenail.
Hers was a one layer card front, but when I re-created it for my Christmas in September class, I chose to make the embossed area a second, popped up layer.

I stamped my ornament from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set in Raspberry Ripple on Whisper White. It's cut out with my Big Shot and the Holiday Ornaments Framelits. I added sparkle with some Dazzling Diamonds on the edge and a Basic Rhinestone in the center.

The embossed layer behind it was done with the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder. I trimmed it out with my Paper Snips and used a Sponge Dauber to add some Frost White paint to the raised surfaces.
It's popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the card front and the ornament was on dimensionals as well.
The Raspberry Ripple Ribbon bow was adhered with Mini Glue Dots in the perfect spot, right at the top!

I added another stamped ornament to the inside of the card along with a greeting to finish it off.

I hope this card inspires you with your white space. Go use your Whisper White and see what you can make!
Happy Friday!
