Challenge - Red and Gold
I selected a red card which I cut 4.25x11 and created the fold at the top. I added a layer of gold foil paper with Merry Christmas all over it. I cut a Cuttlebug ornament from the same red paper. I added a Prima gold flower and a pearl daisy confetti flower to the centre and held it all in place with a mini gold brad. I placed 3D foam tape behind the hanger and the center of the ornament and adhered it to the card front. I placed a piece of gold thread through the ornament hanger and then pulled the ends through a hole I made in the card with a push pin. I strategically placed the hole to fall under the bough. I cut the bough from pearl card stock with the Impression Obsession die of a branch/bough (DEI021-N). This die requires the metal plate adapter plate to get a clean cut. I glued it down with quick dry adhesive from a bottle with a very fine tip.
