Welcome to the third day of our Holiday Collection Blitz!  Jean Okimoto here, with a trio of embossed ornaments...and the wonderful Curled Ribbons Die that's quickly becoming a must-have!

Memory Box Products

  • NEW Snowflake Lace Designer Stencil 88576
  • NEW Curled Ribbons Die 98936
  • NEW Traditional Ornament Die 98917

Diecut Traditional Ornament and two Small Globe Ornaments from teal, lime and raspberry silk cardstock. The teal and raspberry colors don't look like teal and raspberry...but trust me, they are.

Dry-emboss the diecuts with the Snowflake Lace Designer Stencil following the manufacturer's directions for embossing on your diecut machine.  The stacking sequence used for the Grand Calibur is:

  • Gray Base Plate    
  • Memory Box Metal Adapter Plate
  • Designer Stencil
  • Cardstock
  • Rubber Embossing Mat
  • Light Pink Embossing Plate

Cut Ornaments Hooks and Caps twice from gold mirror cardstock - so you'll have three left-facing hooks.    Attach Scor-Tape behind gold mirror cardstock and diecut Curled Ribbons.

Attach the ornaments to the card.  Attach the short ribbon to the center ornament.  Trim the longer ribbon to create two short pieces for the globe ornaments.  Trim the left "tail" of the ribbon for the ornament on the left.  Attach green sequins.
