Ornamental Christmas

I'm charging forward in the quest to fill my Christmas card box for next year!
I've got 4 cards to share today using pretty much the same design but with some color and ornament stamp changes.
The pretty ornament stamps are from the retired Waltzingmouse set - 2011 Holiday Ornaments. The ornament die is from 2011 Heirloom Ornaments Nestability set.
The Merry Christmas stamping on all of them is from Inside and Out Holiday by PTI. 
The embossing folder is Beaded Garland from Tim Holtz/Alterations/Sizzix, a new acquisition!  
I used Ranger Distress Inks in Wilted Violet, Barn Door, and Evergreen Bough on the ornaments.
The sentiment strip is from Wonky Stitches Die set from Avery Elle.
I brushed Clear Glitter Wink of Stella over all of the ornaments but it never shows up in photos!
There is a lovely shine to them in the light - hopefully you can see it in the close ups below.

I had the perfect sentiment for the inside of my ornament cards
also from the Inside and Out Holiday set from PTI -   
Like ornaments, 
thoughts of special people 
BRIGHTEN THE SEASON 
and warm our hearts.

All 4 of your ornament CAS designed cards are so beautiful, Julia. I love your dry embossed background, pretty ornaments and sentiments. We were on the same track...I just posted my Ornament card and ended up making a total of 10 cards with just using different faux enamel ornaments. Feels great to add 10 new cards to my stash and I am sure you felt the same adding 4 more beauties to your stash:-) WE do have fun! Hugs.
