Finial Ornament Christmas

A Christmas card with a twist, or should I say Ornament! I wanted my ornament to hang over the edge of the page, but I did not want the back of the ornament to show from the inside. I considered stamping and painting the back as well, but the texture would be different, so I opted for another approach.
I cut the ornament shape in my card by aligning the cutting plates for my cuttlebug so it would only cut the shape, and not the 
card base. I then embossed the entire card with the evergreen embossing folder. I stamped my ornament on watercolour paper and heat embossed using silver embossing powder, then painted using Zig Brushes. I added the strip of glitter paper along the edge and also cut the Merry from the same paper. I heat embossed the die cut ribbon and the stamped "Christmas" sentiment with the silver. And, as I was having sequin withdrawals, I added a few cupped white sequins and some crystals to finish. I really like the end results, and hope you do as well. Thank you for visiting today.
