A Way With Words Ornaments

November 11, 2017

By Judi Kauffman

I was so excited when I saw Suzanne Cannon’s new die set with the lovely, open flourished ornament frame and three words: Peace, Joy, Love. It fits right in with one of my favorite projects – making lightweight, durable, flat Shimmer Sheetz ornaments to send instead of cards. They require only a standard envelope and postage. And Shimmer Sheetz is waterproof so the ornaments can be cleaned with a damp cloth if they get dusty.

My first thought was to make three different Christmas ornaments, but then I had another idea: Make one ornament with the two words that felt seasonal and fit nicely within the open area of the ornament (Peace and Joy) and use the third word (Love) for an ornament suitable for birthdays and anniversaries, baby showers and Valentine’s Day!

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!

Here’s how I made the card:
