Chipboard Christmas Ornaments made using the Cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have some Chipboard ornaments that I made using my Cricut the Art Philosophy cartridge, and a stamp set that coordinates with the cartridge. You can dress these up as much as you want or keep them simple. I decided to use non-traditional colors because I just love the trees I have been seeing this year with pinks, purples, and my favorite aqua!

To make these ornaments, cut them out with the cricut. Then stamp the sentiments with the coordinating stamp set called Ornamental Cheer. I stamped them with Versa Mark and then heat embossed them with a silver pearl embossing powder. Next, you adhere them to the coordinating chipboard pieces. I then inked the edges and added ribbon. The last thing I did was add a little bit of tissue paper fringe that I got from Melissa Frances. Super easy!
