I cannot get enough of making cards with the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set (128051) from Stampin’ Up! (SU)! My opinion is that this set is one of SU’s best sets for the season. For today’s card share, I have coupled the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set with the Stampin’ Up! Be of Good Cheer DSP (126896).
The picture below provides a side view, including the inside, of the card.
This picture shows the dimensions of the card.
This picture is of the card’s inside.
