Christmas Ornament

This ornament die is just stunning! I love how easy it cuts and the intricate design is just beautiful. I decided to go with colors that were a little more elegant than the traditional red and green! The ornament was cut using red cardstock. I chose a matt finish metallic paper behind it to show off the detail. 

Taking the same red paper I embossed a strip using the harlequin design to repeat the diamond pattern in the paper. A few touches of pearls, a bow and have a very easy Christmas card!

I heat embossed the sentiment with detail white.
This card is tent style and finished size is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4
Thanks so much for looking!
