Christmas Ornament Medallion

I’ve promised my facebook fans that I would post pics of my interpretation of the Christmas ornament on the cover of Stampin’ Up!’s holiday catalog.  So, without any further adieu, here we go!

Holiday Cover Christmas Ornament

This is my first attempt.  It was very easy, just time consuming!  I did not have the exact paper that was used for the rosette so I just used what I had!  I think it looks nice.

This is my 2nd creation.  As you can tell right away, I used a totally different paper for the rosette.  What you may not notice immediately is that I used a gold metallic cord rather than linen thread to dress it up a little.  Then, I lined a shadowbox frame with more of my DSP and I framed the Ornament Medallion!  What a great way to preserve this beautiful handmade creation!

I dressed up the back (of the ornament being hung, not framed!)   You can use this space to sign your artwork or use to convey a message to the recipient of your gift!
