Create a Classic Ornament Triplet card in bright pastels for a colorful, contemporary Christmas greeting.  The colors may be unusual but the holiday message is clear - and glitter makes everything better, doesn't it?  Hi, Jean Okimoto here, with another "triplet" design for you today.

Cut lime cardstock with the 2" x 3-¼" Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die.  Cut the rectangle with the delicate diamond  Classic Ornament Triplet die.

Cut turquoise cardstock with the 1-¾" x 3 Rectangle Basics die. Cut the rectangle with the solid diamond Classic Rectangle die.  Using the Rectangle Basics die eliminates guessing, measuring and hoping the turquoise rectangle will fit behind the lime rectangle.  It also forms a smoother layer for adhering the pieces.

Cut a scrap of pink glittered cardstock to fit behind the cutouts.

Cut the Millbrook Ornament cap and hanger from silver glittered cardstock.

Cut Sketchbook Joy from pink glittered cardstock - be sure to save the tiny dot that goes over the "j."

Cut a strip of violet cardstock with the long edge of the 4-¾" x 3-½" Rectangle Basics die.  Cut a strip of turquoise cardstock with the short edge of the same die.  Trim both strips to about ¾" wide.  Using the Rectangle Basics die for accent strips makes it easy to cut coordinating pieces in just the right length...without measuring!

Attach the diecuts to a top-folded 5-½" square gray card.  Add clear gem stickers.
