Frosted Designs Metal challenge-Ornaments

     Here is my project for the Design team at Frosted Designs to use Metal this week....So , I thought lets make some ornaments for my 2 (girls) dogs this year and so I got my Cricut Machine and Gypsy out and played around with the different cartridges and found this. I used Graphically Speaking for the metal banner and Christmas Cheer for the tag look ornaments in 2 sizes. I used a bright pink cardstock since I like bright colors on my tree lately and white cardstock for the banner and then cut out some medium weight aluminum the same as the banner.
 I use my light box and a embossing metal alpha template for the names and then used my Cuttlebug and folder to dry embossed the pink ornaments- which I then used 7 different colors of Stickles and colored over the embossed circles. I then tied and ribbon to hang  the ornaments  and made a bow with silver & white ribbons and glued them on the top. I  used 3-D Zots in between the two different sizes of ornaments and under the metal banner to give it more demension. Which  the inked edges in pink and silver helped a little bit more also.
It was hard to take a picture without the glare of the metal -which will make them show &glow and sparkle  really good on the Christmas tree- This one has the name IZZY for one of my dogs. On the other side is the same thing except the banner has 2011 embossed on it- which I forgot to take a picture of the back side --oops! So hopefully this was inspirational to you and maybe you might make a few of these simple yet cute ornaments for your family tree. So be sure to enter into the Metal Challenge this week over at Frosted Designs for a chance to win a fabulous prize from One Stop Card Crafts.
