I've been dying to use my new Marianne's Christmas Ornament dies and this was the perfect challenge for them. I took some Art Emboss medium weight Pewter which I normally use in my free machine embroidery and die cut three shapes; two of the more open designs and one of the slightly more solid design. They cut beautifully and, because the pewter is quite flexible, came out of the die easily. I attached some metallic black and silver cord to the top of each ornament and then mounted onto a piece of black card to which I had put a strip of red liner tape around the outside edges and added metallic flakes to. I then used Diamond Glaze on the inside of each of the ornaments to give a nice shiny finish and mounted this onto an A5 ribbed black card base. The sentiment is from Stampin Up Contempo Christmas and embossed in detail silver e/p. To finish I've gone round all the edges with a silver pen.
