Black & Gold Delicate Ornaments

I just love black and gold together.  These delicate ornament framelits are in the upcoming Christmas catalogue - which you can order from starting tomorrow.  Yeah!!

  • The Basic black cardstock card base was layered first with gold foil cardstock and then Whisper white cardstock embossed with Gently Falling embossing folder.
  • A piece of Gold and white Vellum was adhered at the bottom of the card, and  some 3/8" gold glitter ribbon was adhered at the top of it.
  • The ornaments were die cut using the new Delicate Ornament Thinlet dies.  First I die cut a basic black solid ornament, and then I die cut the more intricate ones using gold foil.  I also die cut the pieces in the middle using Whisper white cardstock.  I used the new Precision base plate, a little nervously I must say, to cut these dies.  To my amazement it was quite easy.
  • Thank goodness for the new fine tipped glue pen.  It was a cinch to apply glue to these delicate pieces without getting glue all over the place.
  • After adhering the delicate pieces onto the solid black background, the centers were added.  To complete the center, I added a metal trimmed pearl.
  • Some gold cording trim extends from the ornament top to the top of the card.  I also tied some as a bow around the neck of the bigger ornament.
  • The larger ornment was attached using dimensionals, overlapping the more narrow one.
  • The sentiment is from "Wonderland".
Tomorrow all these wonderful products can be ordered.  In the meantime add it to your wish list.
