Video: Foiled Christmas Ornament
Hello there, Michelle here and today I have a card and video to share using the Ornament Fancy Dies in a slightly different way, with hot foiling, ink blending, and die cutting.
Here is the video showing how I made the card:
(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please watch HERE on YouTube.)
I started off by hot foiling the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Three Holiday Messages Hot Foil Plate onto Nautical cardstock using Champagne Hot Foil. I took one of the Ornament Fancy Dies, placed it on top of the foiled sentiment and die cut it out.
Whilst die cutting, I also die cut the ornament topper from Gold Glitter Paper and foliage in the Winter Folaige Stamp & Cut XL set from Meadow and Pine cardstock. I cut these down a little, as I only needed small pieces to add around the ornament. I added ink blending to them with Pine Core ink and a Small Ink Blending Brush.
I added ink blending to the ornament with Nautical Core ink (with a Medium Ink Blending Brush) and Pitch Black Core ink (with a Small Ink Blending Brush). I also added ink blending to the front panel of my A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card base cut from Nautical cardstock.
I adhered the foliage to the card base with Precison Glue XL using Tweezers to help with placement. I adhered the topper to the ornament and tied gold thread through the top and tied in a double bow. The ornament was then adhered to the card using foam tape. To finish off, I added a few gold gems.
I love how the sentiment fits perfectly inside the ornament and it is a fun way to use the ornaments in a different way! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day!Click on products to shop:
