Noel, Noel, Noel

On this hot summer's day - I have another card for my Christmas stash!
I made the ornaments themselves by adhereing some Idea-ology Tissue Wrap/Terminology to cardstock and when dry, punched them out with different size circle punches.  I stamped the Noel from Compliments of the Season Two  from Waltzingmouse onto Vintage Cream cardstock and cut them out into rectangles.  I sponged the edges of the tags, the ornaments and the panel with Ranger Distress Antique Linen.  I brushed the ornaments with Glitter Glaze - they really sparkle IRL not sure you can see it here?
Here you can see the star pattern on the Yonder Star Background Stamp.  I stamped the berries from Around Christmastime in red on each tag for a little splash of color.  I hand cut the ornament tops out of Brushed Silver cardstock and looped twine through the hole I punched in them.
I adhered the ornaments to the panel with thick foam dots so they really stand out.
My card was inspired by this week's Merry Monday Challenge -  use newsprint

Stamps:  Compliments of the Season Two, Around Christmastime, Yonder Star Background stamp - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  Festive Cream - PTI, Brushed Corduroy - SU
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Festive Berries.
Accessories:  Idea-ology Tissue Wrap/Terminology, 1 3/4", 1 3/8", 1 1/4" circle punches - SU, Glue N Seal, twine, Glitter Glaze - MFT
