Delightful Ornaments

In a couple of weeks I will be doing a workshop with some elderly people and so I thought we would make a small Christmas card (3 1/2" x 3 1/2") using the new ornament stamp set and punch I bought recently.  I have made a few different ones to see what I like the best.

Here are all three:

Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Come to Bethlehem
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Cardstock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Punches: Ornament
Other: Markers, Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Here they are in more detail.

First card:
This first one uses very vanilla cardstock, although it is probably hard to tell in the photo.  This is probably my personal favourite as I think it is a bit more elegant with just the very vanilla and cherry cobbler and without the gumball green.

Second card:
With this card I thougth I would include two different colours of ornaments and use whisper white card.

Third card: 
This final card also uses whisper white and has the ornaments the opposite way around.  I have also added the the string to hang the ornament from with matching markers.  I wonder if it spoils it a bit.  I think adding some Baker's Twine would be good, but I don't have it in gumball green and it would be a bit fiddle to do with the elderly group, but probably effective.  I will have to try that one too sometime.

Which one is your favourite?

Thanks for dropping by and for your comments.
