Christmas Ornament Swap using Hang Your Stocking and Christmas Pines

This is the ornament I made for the Ornament Swap last night at Technique Night.  

For my ornament I took the stitched circle and sewed it to the Scalloped Circle.  I did stitch it by hand. There are 96 stitches around that circle, in case you were curious!!! LOL

I cut out a total of 4 round scalloped circles. One is sewn to the round focal one and the other three were glued to each other and set under a heavy book to keep flat until it dried. Once it was dry, I glued the stitched piece to the backing pieces and added a ribbon in between for the hanger.

I cut a 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and centered it in the "Banner Triple" punch.  I cut another piece that was 1" and just punched a sliver so I could use it as the roof.  

The circle for the bird hole is a scrap from punching out a "Cookie Cutter Christmas" Santa.  

The leaves are from the "Berry Builder" Punch.  I used some card stock pieces that were left over from the "Falling Snow" embossing folder.  

I used 3 branches from the "Christmas Pines" die.  I sponged everything with Pink Pirouette ink.  

The words are from the "Oh, What Fun" set.  I embossed them in white.  I also mixed up some texture by using white glue and white craft inker.  It's kind of snotty feeling and it takes a little white to setup.  I didn't want to heat set it because I didn't want the embossing ink to melt to where it was no longer raised.

I added a snowflake from the "Hang Your Stocking" set.  I added pearls all over the front.

I had some round white "berries" from a holiday pick and I put 3 of them on the ornament.  The center one was there to hide where the pieces joined.  It looked funny alone, so I had to add two more to balance it out.

This was fun to make.  It had a lot of pieces to it and I don't think I'd like to make any more of them but one never knows!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
