Festive Christmas "Card" Blog Hop!

Time for another "Festive" Christmas card!
When I first glanced at The Robins Nest Glitter White Trees paper,
I instantly thought of a vintage glass ornament.
So hence, I was inspired to make this card.
I traced the drinking end (of a plastic) cup twice onto the paper,
then traced the the other end once.
Next I trimmed one of the 2 same sized circles
a bit smaller than the first.
Then I frayed the edges with this paper distresser.
I simply adhered each circle on top of each other leaving room
for the ornament crown (rebellious red glitter cardstock) and wire hook.
I made the wire hook from floral wire
and taped the end under the last circle to keep in in place.
I topped off the ornament with a silver glittered snowflake chipboard piece
and finished the card with a length of snazzy red bric-a-brac.
The paper and snowflake to make the ornament can be found at The Robins Nest!
Be sure to hop around and visit all the blogs.
Many of them are hosting fabulous giveaways too!
