Ornaments 2017 Style

This year's ornaments I made to Deck the Halls are using a die from Cheery Lynn Designs called Christmas Ornament #4. I purchased this die several months ago when I had a gift certificate to apply to my order and just yesterday started working on them. I really like them too. I used both glitter paper and foiled paper that I had in my stash and this die cut perfectly every time. I was so happy with it.


Now this ornament die does not mesh up on each side so since I wanted to cover both sides with the design I had to cut out one on the foil or glitter side and then flip the paper over and cut out a die on the other side. The pieces that fell right out were then added into each side using Scor Tape but any double stick type of tape would work. Then I added a little bit of gold thin thread between the sections before I placed them together. Very easy and fun design.

The glitter paper I used is from Stampin' Up! and the Deco Foils used were Emerald Watercolor and Summer Rainbow.

I am entering this in the Dies R Us Challenge #86-Christmas Carols. My carol I chose is Deck The Halls.

Well, thanks for the visit and I hope your weekend will be a great one. I love to read your comments too. They mean so much to me.

God bless,
Verna

Just beautiful! I'm especially liking the 2nd from the left...the way that the colors blend look so very realistic, just like the old ornaments from long ago. I'm so pleased this die cut well for you, and if it cut nicely using glitter paper, well, WOW! Good job on this one, Verna. It's a gorgeous card. TFS

Thanks for the great tip about turning the paper over to make the front and back "mesh up" LOL Duh! I am not a paper engineer, so those types of types are so helpful to my brainlessness! Your ornaments are gorgeous and would make great tags on presents and then keepsake ornaments! LOVE THEM, in all their shimmering, sparkling glory! xx
