Cabrini Ornament

I've had this die on my wish list for a while having seen Di's card and I've finally bought it with a voucher I won a few weeks ago.  As all the mirri card is from my snippets drawer, I'm hoping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop to show Di what she 'encouraged' me to buy!

I'm also entering  the Christmas Card Throwdown 'Pick a Previous Challenge from 2012 or 2013' (I have chosen the February 2012 'Red, Green & Gold' challenge), the Crafty Calendar Challenge 'It's Christmas', Die-Cut Divas 'Winter Time' and the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes'.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Dies: Memory Box 'Grand Merry Christmas' and 'Cabrini Ornament'
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Snowflake Frame', Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Green, gold and red mirri, white silk card

I trimmed a piece of white card slightly smaller than the front of the card and die cut Merry Christmas from the lower section, setting aside the letters.  I then die cut the ornament from the top.  I die cut Merry Christmas from gold card, trimming the sides and lower edge. The two sections were then attached to the card front.  I die cut the ornament from gold mirri and attached the outline of the ornament.  The leaves were die cut and embossed from green mirri and the berries from red mirri, before being inlaid into the ornament.  I embossed a piece of gold card with the corner of the snowflake frame, die cut the bauble and inlaid it.
