Flourishes Friday Free For All

Hi, all, welcome to Flourishes Friday Free For All! I've been dying to try this project ever since I got my hands on the recently released set, Holiday Sparkle. I immediately saw the potential for REAL ornaments!!

I may have mentioned a time or two that I am an extreme Christmas decorator. I put up many trees, one of which is smaller and has the theme of "Santa Lite". By that I mean every Santa on the tree has a pastel colored or white robe. And since they're all Antique Santas in style, this little guy will fit in perfectly!

First of all I stamped the image with Gold Encore pigment ink on Classic White card stock and heat embossed with fine detail gold embossing powder. Then I colored them with Copic markers, using these collection:

Finally, I cut them out and put a hook in the loop. I did glue a metal jump ring on the back of the loop at the top to prevent tearing with use. These are gonna look so CUTE on that tree! And so easy to store--they'll take up very little room :)

So, that's it for me. Be sure to take a look at what the rest of the design team has for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
