Another Christmas Card

The Spellbinders Ornament die is again used for this card.
I love this die, it is so easy to decorate and the end
result is so impressive.

The embossing folder used for the background is from Cuttlebug.
I used a glossy white paper.
It was layered over a dark green that has
been trimmed to a narrow margin using 
layering rulers.

The ornament has been cut from a polished stone
piece from my stash.  I have a stack of various
polished stone pieces ready to use.  It is a rather
messy technique and it is also addictive.

The bronze metallic looking embellishments on
the ornament have been made using a bronze gift 
wrap that has been attached to card stock using
spray glue.  This is another thing that I do in 
huge amounts at once because of the mess.
I have a file with all kinds of gift wrap
attached to card stock for die cutting and backgrounds.

HINT - shop now for glitzy shiny gift wraps for die cutting
and backgrounds.  The gold especially is usually to be found
only at Christmas.  I use it year round.  The gift wrap is so so so  much 
less expensive than the scrapbook store gold paper.
