Damask Christmas Card

So, since I missed the challenge for Black Tie Fridays this past week; I was committed to entering the challenge this week.  When I got home from work today the hubby was taking a nap so I took advantage of the situation and decided to make a card for the new challenge that came out today.  So, I looked it up and Challenge #6 is Black and Brown with 3-D Inside.  Jeez, that's quite the challenge.  I had been wanting to experiment with some new Stampin' Up! materials that I had bought recently so I did.  I used the Ornaments Keepsakes stamp set along with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits to cut out the ornaments.  On the front of the card I attempted to fade from black to light brown with the layers (it's kind of hard to tell).  On the inside of the card I used four ornaments that I cut out, folded them in half and glued them all together for a "3-D Effect."  So, here goes... Black and brown card front with a 3-D Ornament inside!

   Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Soft Suede
   Stamp Set: Stampin' Up! Ornament Keepsakes and Season of Joy, Ditto Damask
   Framelits: Stampin' Up! Holiday Ornaments
   Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake
   Twine: The Twinery Flax
