Here is the inspiration pic and verse and a full view of my card. I used the Day/Night and Winter as my inspiration from the verse and the ornaments from the photograph to come up with this card.
I started with a white A2 card base and added a Vintage Flourish Pattern Die cut. I topped that with a Vintage Labels Die cut which I cut in white. I sponged in the blue and added some glitter glue to the edge.
Next I stamped the ornament twice in Blue ink and added the sentiment on one of them. I then fussy cut the sentiment and embossed it in clear embossing powder. I die cut the ornament and embossed it with a clear glitter embossing powder to make it sparkle. I added silver cord to the top of the ornament and attached it to the card. I added foam tape to the sentiment and added it and the bow to the ornament. I used white card stock to cut the greens and the poinsettia which I glittered before making the top assembly. The ornament was topped off with the greens and flower. That's it, a simple and straight forward card.
