Framed Ornament

I began with a Cuttlebug folder that is
trimmed to 4 x 5.25 inches, then layered
over a sage green card stock. 
The green card stock has been cut to
make a narrow border.
This whole concoction is then attached
to a plain white A2 card base.

The ornament frame is from a
Spellbinders ornament die.
I used the largest and the second largest 
dies together to create the frame of polished stone.
The trick is to tape the dies in place before you cut.

The greeting was created in PSP X and
printed on plain white card stock.
It was cut out with the same ornament die.

I used a heavy gold metallic gift wrap
that has been attached to card stock using spray glue.
This was die cut using a Sizzix extended cut die.
The straight gold pieces and the hanger
were cut with a guillotine paper cutter.

The frame is raised over the Christmas phrase
using flat pieces of paper egg carton.
Most pop dots are expensive and too thick.
Paper egg cartons a free.  (big plus!)
