There are a lot of great tutorials on this technique, even some videos, but Patty Bennett has a great tutorial here. For my card I made my own template from the DSP cardboard, instead of using the wooden frame as shown on Patty's tutorial. I cut circles, lined them up and adhered them together to make my background, so that when I put the cardstock and embossing folder through my Big Shot (this technique works great with the Cuttlebug too), it left a lovely space in the centre.
I punched out an ornament in Pretty in Pink and also ran it through the same embossing folder, Finial Press...love this folder! Then I ran my 2 way glue pen over the raised embossing on the ornament and added Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment is from the set Home for Christmas.
To finish it I added a knot bow with our White Tafetta Ribbon (this makes the best bows!) and drew a light pencil line fromt the top of the ornament to the top edge of the card. The ferns are from a Martha punch.
Hope you like it....thanks for stopping by!
