Gold Ornament 08081
Today instead of making a tag, I put a tag on my ornament on my Christmas card. I really love this big, ornate ornament die so I cut it & the bow out of a metallic gold card stock, then backed the ornament w/ a white circle die cut.  The little tag was die cut then I gold embossed the small Christmas on it & edged it w/ a gold Krylon pen.

The paper on the left was die cut using one of the smaller matting basics then I used a pierced rectangle on it. The rectangles were not the same size so I had to move it around & do 2 sides at a time to get the piercing on it. I added a couple of strips of metallic gold on either side & then strip of another pattern of the same paper on the right of them. The large white bg was die cut w/ the largest pierced rectangle & I gold embossed the Merry Merry down the side. 

Here’s the inside using some left over pieces. The Merry Merry was stamped repeatedly on the white piece using Brilliance gold.

I fussy cut a stocking shape & stamped it w/ one band of a woven plaid image then used a red Micron pen to add the borders on each band. A polka dot stamp & white pigment ink were used on the red topper, heel & toe. The woodgrain background was stamped onto a lt kraft using Memento desert sand. I added the ribbon & button and a couple of Candi dots to balance out the empty corner & I used a stitched rectangle on the white card front.

White Christmas cu 07756
Fun & easy challenge today for the Splitcoast Technique Challenge (TLC558)..either white emboss a silhouette image or use a white die cut. I went w/ the die cut option since I’ve had this beautiful die for a while but haven’t used it.
White Christmas 07754
Since the die pretty much makes the card, all I did was add a mega oval behind it. I did die cut it twice, once out of the red & once out of a very dark green, split them then joined the two halves together.Sorry the dark green is very hard to get a good pic almost looks black, but it’s a very pretty forest green.

I added a dp layer & another red layer and done! Here’s a look at the inside using some leftovers.
