Christmas Ornaments

The challenge this week at 52 CCT is to use gilding or foils.  I have had gold and silver gilding flakes in my stash for a couple of years that I have forgotten about.  
I decided to go CAS with the card to really show off the gold ornaments.  I made the ornaments using a sizzix die.  I then ran them though my xyron sticker maker before adding the gold flakes. I really like the way they turned out.  The sentiment was stamped and then embossing with gold embossing.  For a little extra gold, I used gold thread for the stitching.
I hope you join us in this challenge and show us your creative projects using gilding or foils.

Ornaments: Sizzix dies
