An Ornament Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I am playing along with this weeks challenge Red & Green. I chose to create an ornament with the Circle Stacker Die and assorted shaped dies and doilies.  Below is a brief tutorial with all the tips.

I  began by aging the papers that I die cut with ink and layered them along with the Dancing Snow Flurries.

I created pine branches on brown jute strung. I began by straightening and stiffening the string with a coating of lacquer.

Once straight, I spun the lollipop strips onto the jute string in a fashion to create pine branches.
The circle  die cut was also aged with ink and then smeared with red oil pastel to create a dimensional ball shape. The "ball" was attached to the card base with foam tape and the pine branches and poinsettias were attached with lacquer. a pine cone was created with a cutie die and lacquered to create shine. poinsettias and the bow and pine cone topped the "ball"
