Today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE #145 is a theme challenge...CHRISTMAS/WINTER.

I went with Christmas and used a new release ANTIQUE ORNAMENTS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

This is a 5x5 card with a Spellbinders Circle Label cut out of the center (second from the largest). I cut it out BEFORE I folded it. That frame is made using the largest and second largest Spellbinders Circle Labels.

The ornament I stamped four times, colored each one, cut them out, sponged edges and folded in half long ways. Then I glued the sides to each other.

I punched out the top circle with a 1/8" hole punch. Then I used five small jump rings to hang it. I punch a 1/16" hole at the top so it would be covered by the frame (the frame is adhered with dimensional tape....leave a small gap where the jump ring hangs at the top).

STAMPS:Antique Ornaments (Clear Dollar Stamps)
PAPER:Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, Copics RV14 Berry Blast , YG23 Kiwi Delight, YR04 Orange Whip (from Clear Dollar Stamps)
ACCESSORIES:Spellbinders Circle Labels, Cuttlebug, Tim Holtz Blender Tool, Jump Rings (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Scotch dimensional tape

What a fabulous window treatment! LOVE the 3D ornament (another technique I will have to find time to try!) and the window looks wonderful with its frame too! Can't believe there are so many details on a CAS card!
