A Christmas Ornament

Ever since the Wonder of Christmas set was released in October I have wanted to create an ornament with the beautiful double skate image. Of course, I had to create a vintage tag to present it to the recipient. I had so much fun with this project!


To create the ornament, I stamped the image with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and cut with the coordinating die. I also die cut three more skate images from white cardstock. I got out my prima watercolors to color the image(#'s 24, 86, 93, 125, and 128). Once dry, I glued the multiple layers together with Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue, punched a hole in the top and created a hanger with gold cord.

I pulled a kraft tag from my stash of freebies from crafty orders over the years. I knew I was saving them for a reason. I began by placing the vintage doily stencil over the top and inking with antique linen distress ink. It is faint, but adds just the right amount of texture to the base. Then, I inked up the script background with vintage photo distress ink and placed my tag on top of it and pressed down. Next, I added more layers with the going postal set using walnut stain distress and real red inks. 

To finish it off, I added some gold cord and red ribbon to the top and attached the ornament to the front with three glue dots. I affixed the ornament cord to the back with some vintage style washi tape. I think the tag is a pretty way to present the ornament.
