Bright String Ornament
by Michele K. Henderson


It's time for bright Christmas greetings with the new String Ornament from Poppystmps! This easy breezy string ornament is a terrific addition to your Christmas dies collection! I paired it with a few old and new Poppystamps holiday dies, Holly Leaves and Berries, Jumbled Merry Christmas, and Valley Snowflakes to create a vivid, eye-popping Christmas card!  The background was created with white embossing paste and the Simple Chevron designer stencil from Memory Box.


I created this card in bright, bold colors to look like an animation cell, bight and flat. I added a tiny "moon" shape to look like a light spot, but the string ornament could be decorated in so many wonderful ways!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post for your chance to win the String Ornament for you collection.
