CardMaker-Quietfire Blog Hop - Joyful Flourished Ornament

Welcome to our blog hop with CardMaker magazine!  

I hope you're enjoying our hop!  If you're new to Quietfire Design, please feel free to look back through our Quietfire Creations blog where our Design Team has lots of wonderful and diverse projects for your creative inspiration. 

I'm Suzanne and I'm a calligrapher and love to design stamps and dies and digital files with a calligraphic flair for your enjoyment.  Please feel free to follow our blog - sign up is >>>>> this way in the sidebar!

I'd like to thank CardMaker Magazine and their Designers for sharing their time and creativity with us. It's very exciting! CardMaker is a joy to work with!

I want to share this project with you using one of the brand new Quietfire dies and bring a little Christmas sparkle to your creativity. 

Here is what you will need to complete the project as I've made it:
A Way With Words Love Peace Joy Ornament
Elizabeth Craft Designs Sprig with Berries
Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter in Copper Rose, Vintage Pink and Soft Green

Bazzill cardstock in Tutu Pink and Vintage Pink
White cardstock 
Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets
Scrapbook Adhesives Micro Adhesive Dots and 3D Foam Squares


  1. Form a side-fold cardbase from Tutu Pink measuring 5 x 7-inches.
  2. Cut a panel measuring 4 x 4-inches in Tutu Pink and mat it with a slightly larger panel from Vintage Pink cardstock.
  3. Die cut the flourished Ornament, Joy and the sprig from white cardstock covered in a double sided adhesive sheet on the front of the diecuts. Remove the release paper and apply glitter, then rub the glittered surface to bring out additional sparkle.
  4. Attach the diecuts to the pale pink panel as shown using micro dots.  Designer Tip: Roll the dots between your fingers if you need them to be even smaller.
  5. Attach this panel to the vintage pink panel and mount them on the card base using foam squares.
