Stampin' Up Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card II - Christmas Bulbs

I'm lovin' Stampin' Up's Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin kit.  I just had to fussy cut the bulb trim print on the one card base in the kit to make individual Christmas bulbs.  Here's a picture of the alternate Christmas card I designed from my kit:

The only extra items I used from my personal stash is the SU Basic Rhinestone Jewels, a SU Iced Rhinestone and the SU Silver Cording.  

I partial die cut two labels using Stampin' Up's Deco Labels Collection Framelits from the white with green stripes card base and the Envelope using the two largest framelits.  I adhered the white with green stripes label to the top of my card base using MonoMulti Purpose glue. The  Cherry Cobbler Envelope label was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I placed a Stampin' Dimensional on the back of the hand cut ornament and adhered the end of SU's Silver Cording under the Stampin' Dimensionals and then to the card base.  Then I  taped the other end of SU's Silver Cording to the back of the card base. 

I stamped the holly leaves on the leftover paper from the Mistletoe and Holly die cuts and fussy cut them out.  I punched holly berries from the Envelope in the kit with the Owl Builder Punch.  The holly leaves and berries were adhered to the top of the bulbs with MonoMulti Purpose glue.

I then added some bling-bling from my SU personal stash to decorate the bulbs.

I punched a scalloped oval from the green with white stripes card base using SU's Scallop Oval Punch.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the Envelope, embossed  it with SU Silver Emboss Powder and punched it out with SU's Oval Punch.  Both pieces  were adhered to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a couple SU Basic Rhinestone Jewels on each side of the sentiment. 

Using SU's Silver Cording, I tied small bows and adhered them to the top of the ornaments using SU's glue dots.  I roll them up and tuck them under the center of the bows.
