Cherry Cobbler Ornament

I love using the color Cherry Cobbler for Christmas cards.  This ornament (from the Contempo Christmas stamp set) was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and then punched out with the matching ornament punch.  Isn't it nice how Stampin' Up! makes things that coordinate so well?  I love not having to cut out the ornament (or several other shapes for that matter) due to the fabulous punches.  This is a pretty quick and simple card to put together--just a few layers of paper, a little ribbon, a couple of stamps, and that's it!  One tip for adding bits of ribbon to your projects:  use the mini glue dots!  They are not messy and they are just sticky enough to securely hold a knot or bow of ribbon in place.  I also used Old Olive on this card, and the card base is Vanilla card stock.  The talented Julie Davidson made a card very similar to this and I just loved it and wanted to recreate it and share it with you, but I give her the credit for designing it.  Thanks Julie!
