Avocado Arts and an ornament

christmas ornament

Yay! Its Avocado Arts day! Today everyone has projects to share with you using the December set, Brrr! and the Nerdy Snow Peeps.

This year I have decided to re-design our Christmas tree. My hubby likes to call it the department store tree, but I can’t help it. There is something so fun about creating a beautifully themed tree! This year I have large and small glittered snowflakes and burlap ribbon. I am wanting to add music somehow, sleds. I love sleds! As I looked at my stamp set, voila! There it was, a sled! Time to make ornaments!!

Instructions:

  1. Die cut Classic Scallops LG from red cardstock. Add Stickles to each scallop.
  2. Die cut/emboss Standard Circles LG from patterned paper. Ink edges. Stamp with snowflakes.
  3. Stamp trees twice, one with light brown ink, the other ink dark brown ink.
  4. Die cut/emboss same die template with a different piece of patterned paper. Free hand cut a hill. Ink edges.
  5. Adhere to large circle. Add Stickles to the upper edge.
  6. Stamp sled onto patterned paper with dark brown ink. Cut out. Foam mount to hill.
  7. Adhere to the red scalloped circle. Punch hole in the top. Tie with twine.

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team to be inspired!

I really love this ornament! Something about neutrals and red gets me too. Now I just need to find a source for burlap ribbon - I love that look!

Now, I like that ornament and would probably like your tree with the burlap ribbon.

OHH! I love this ornament--esp. those trees! That is exactly what they look like in my hometown (IN). LOVE that you used burlap ribbon on your tree! BEAUTIFUL!
