Ornament Card/ Ellen Hutson Hard Candy Christmas

Ellen Hutson Hard Candy Christmas Card and removable ornament

Hello Friends

The new Ellen Hutson stamp Hard Candy Christmas designed By Brandi has a a vintage charm to it. For my card today I decided to make a removable ornament git card. What I mean is that the candy jar can be removed and put on a tree as an ornament :).

I stamped the candy jar on a white card stock and added very little sharing using a light gay marker and cut it out using the coordinating die. I love the fact that this die set has a die that cuts the inside of the jar so you can fill the jar with candies and turn it into a shaker card as well. I also cut the jar using fun foam as I wanted this jar to be filled with candies and glitter. Make sure to poke a whole on every die cut jar so later we can thread a string for hanging the ornament.

I made the jar quiet thick with multiple layers of card stock as I wanted this ornament to be very sturdy. After the jar was all assembled and filled with candies and glitter, I kept it aside to completely dry. I stamped and colored all the candies with various colors of markers. The coloring was very simple. I also die cut a small bow with gold glitter card stock using an older Mama Elephant die set called the Rainbow High.

Jar Ornament

To make the card was very easy, I took a white side folding card and adhered a red and white stripy pattern paper which I had in my stash from a very long time ago. I also die cut a frame using Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Stackable Dies (say that three times)!! , in white and adhere it on the patterned paper. I wanted the color theme and the card to be very simple as the focus was on the ornament. I had stamped and die cut a few candy canes which i adhere behind the jar. The jar was then adhered using glue dots as this will be easily removable by the recipient. I stamped the sentiment with multiple colors and added some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. to match the bow on the jar. To complete the ornament, I added glossy accent over the jar and added the glitter bow on it. I have a video showing how I made this cad on my Youtube channel.
