Foiled Ornaments

I first started off with Frantic Stampers Ornamental Swag die. First cutting the die with green cardstock, then I cut 4 more times using foiled cardstock, I just cut the ornaments this time so I didn't waste the branch part since I didn't plan on using that section, and I combined the different foils in these cards, you can get 4 sets of cards out of this, I am showing two today.

For framing of these cards I used Impression Obsession Rectangle 6 in 1 Frames die I cut it out of cream cardstock and ended up not liking the look so I just colored with my marker and then added some sparkle pen to it.

Here are the dies after I had them cut out, you can mix and match them anyway you would like this way.

I decided since the die is pretty intricate that I might just glue that directly to the DaisyD's papers I used for the background, but wanted a little dimension so I used foam tape on the back of the frame.

Here is the second card I made using the red and gold foil cardstocks for the ornaments.

I love the look of ornaments on a branch and I just loved the details in these ornaments and so quick since they are all in one die.

Two lovely cards Connie, which look very different with the frames you have chosen and the gorgeous papers. The foiled ornaments are stunning!

Beautiful foiled ornaments! Love the way they hang on the branch too! Great backgrounds as well, I think I love the blue swirly one best! Merry Merry!

I really like this. The die is a neat one, since you could use it as is, or just use the little ornaments as embellies.

I do also love your idea for using the foiled paper in different color combinations! It looks really great and is a great idea for making multiples. Really clever, Connie, thanks for sharing!

I love the look of hanging ornaments, too, and just look how many you get here and so perfect for mixing and matching. You're just full of good ideas, Connie! I always keep a stash of my 6-in-1 frames cut in white. Then I can grab and color so easily, mix and match, put two or more together. I love those dies!
