Ornament No. 3

Wow! A third post for today. What was I thinking? But they all involve the ornaments I made with the glitter paper from Stampin' Up! I had some negatives that I thought would work into great ornaments too, so that is what I did. I used them for this design.

In the first ornament I made I needed a red snowflake design so I took the negatives from the red frame dies and tried my best to center that snowflake right in the middle. It worked great. I did that for both of the red glitter paper negatives so that I could once again make a two sided ornament. And, I simply glued two gold circles together and placed them in between these snowflake die cut circles. Now this was four layers so it was too hard to use a regular paper punch to make a hole so I instead got out my old eyelet setter and a hammer and added my punched hole that way. The ornament was finished by adding a green rhinestone gem to the center.

Hopefully, you can see the design better with this next photo. And, believe me taking photos of glittery objects can be a real hassle. But I finally got a couple good ones. The gold layer is recessed behind the die cut snowflakes.

Dies used:
Die-Namics MFT-948 Single Stitched Line Circle Frames
CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Fri-Dies Funky Flakes

I am entering this ornament design in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-ABC-Anything But a Card
Crop Stop Linky Party #21-Anything Goes

Well, that is all for me today. Tomorrow I will get back to Halloween or Thanksgiving card making, but this was sure fun to work with these. I hope you had a great day too.

God bless,
