Mistletoe Ornament

     Yesterday, we finished the entire alphabet prompts and today is the last of the daily challenges which have been running for an entire month at Beccy's Place.  Today we get to do "Anything We Love."  I loved the Mistletoe which came in this set from Beccy's and had to use it before the challenges ended altogether.

     However, I wanted to try something other than just another card so I turned it into a tree ornament!

Colors from Color My Heart #321, 3rd column
plus Gold on the twine bow.
     I printed the mistletoe image onto CS twice, added glitter to the mistletoe berries, then after it dried, cut both of them at the same time with a die from QuicKutz.  I wanted the ornament to have a bit of weight so I cut six more of the same shape from white CS.  I sandwiched those six pieces between the two image pieces and glued them all together, adding the ribbon hanger to the center of the layers.

     If I do another one I think, instead of gluing the layers, I'll try weaving narrow ribbon through the holes and I can tie the ends together to make the hanger.  It'll make it a bit more decorative and I could even add a splash of bright color simply by choosing the right ribbon.

     Note especially for Beccy: Playing this month has been so much fun and I look forward to your 30 Days of Cards each November.  Thank you so much for all you do to make the daily challenges fun and fabulous!  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

You are so very welcome NC, it's my pleasure. I enjoy this challenge just as much as everyone else, it always gives me so much inspiration! Thank you for being a part of it, without everyone entering it wouldn't be an event.

Great idea to create an ornament with die cuts NC, it would looks great on the tree or decorating a beautifully wrapped gift. I love the idea of threading ribbon through the loops of the die cut, that would look awesome too. Beautiful work!

Nana, you really fooled me when I opened up the link...the only thing that shows on the photo in the post is the ribbon to the tag and I thought okay, I think she's missing some colors. Beautiful tag. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare and I hope everyone opens up the link or they would be missing a beauty.
