Homemade Christmas Ornaments and Cards
Our homemade Christmas ornaments always reflect our lives. Of course, if your making an ornament or card for someone, you may change it up a bit for their personality or yours.
Our western life and faith gives a taste of who we are and what we love to share.
We hope the ideas below spark some ideas.
Ornament is made with a clear bulb and rub on letters. Easy peasy…I love attaching the ornaments onto a gift. Just brings a little sparkle.

Simply stamp your image onto your glittery white card stock. Mine had an image on it but you sure can use an embossing folder to create your own.
Punch out image
Chalk as you like
Layered using dots or pop ups
Painted my letters with White craft ink
While still wet you can add some dazzling diamond glitter.
I placed letters to look like NOEL and used pop ups for them too.

My sister got into this homemade card making and she loves it! Especially Christmas! I just got this in the mail today and it made my day!
Ornaments are pretty easy now a days with the clear bulbs. I especially like the flat ones as you can fill them easily and put the rub on letters on easier too.
Rub ons are pretty popular…here is some ideas.
Making something special is always rewarding and a great expression of LOVE!
Love deeper, talk sweeter,
