Draped Ornaments

I made this card as part of my 2010 Christmas Collection for the DelCastle Craft Fair. I made seven cards, some aligned better than others.

I purchased two packages of the Reflections Craft Cardstock during Michael’s Employee Appreciation Week for half price (1 pack of 8 ½” x 11” for 50 sheets is regularly $3.99 – so I got 100 sheets for that price). CTMH's Desert Sand will cardstock will also work with this project. 

I also purchased an Iris Card Storage Bin at half price. It has seven sections, so I have one bin dedicated to storage for the kraft cardstock. I will have seven kraft card designs for Delcastle. A roll of Kraft paper was $6.99 (I think I got it for half price too). I can also use the craft paper to cover my tables.
