Christmas Ornament

Today's card is the one I made for the Hero Arts Flickr group Christmas exchange that Anita organised.  My card went to my friend Martha in Austin, not to far from here and she has received it so it's ok to share.


I basically clear embossed some PTI cardstock with a Hero Arts background stamp.  I then die cut a piece of designer paper from My Mind's Eye for the top portion.  The Hero Arts ornament is pieced in two layers.  The top layer is silver embossed and popped over the main ornament with some dimensional squares, and a little turquoise gem was added to the centre.

The base of the ornament was coloured with Copic markers and I finished it off with a little piece  of crinkle ribbon tied in a knot and glued in place with some glossy accents!

Thanks for visiting!  Wishing you an awesome day!
