Heartfelt Gold and Silver Ornament

Good morning!
I've turned the ornament die into a 3-D ornament making 4 each of the
 gold and silver.  Full instructions below.
I've also made a card with the ornament die, you'll find it below as well!
I had a blast using these stamps and dies, everything is just beautiful 
in the Oh Holy Night collection.

Heartfelt Creations products used:         

Other Products:
Gold metallic textured card stock, Silver metallic textured card stock, Gold half beads, Gold drilled bead, snowflake silver charm, Silver thread, gold trim shimmer ribbon.

Cut 4 ornament base die cuts from gold textured card stock and cut 4 inner decorative ornaments from silver textured card stock.  Score and fold each ornament part in the center.  Glue the half side of one to the half side of another and continue doing this until you meet on the last side with the first side…make sure you string some thread between halves to use as a hanger and also to string a bead on at the bottom.   Let each side dry thoroughly before gluing the next piece on using little clamps to keep ornament parts tight while it dries (especially when using the metallic paper as it has a sleek back). 
Once everything is dry, take all the clamps off and start gluing the silver ornament parts inside the gold.  Again, make sure each side is thoroughly dry before gluing the next one on.  Now decorate by placing adhesive backed gold half beads on the center of each snowflake design in the ornament.  Next place drops of silver Nuvo on each little scroll end.  Add a nice big gold bow at the top and at the bottom string your thread ends through a gold bead and then tie a silver snowflake charm under the bead, make it tight against the ornament.  Put a little glue on the knot for the charm and when the glue dries cut off the ends of the threads right to the charm.

Since I was in the gold mood my card is full of it too!

Card size: 5 3/4 X 6” Start with an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cream shimmer card stock for the base (even though the card measures 6” across you can use this size card stock as the front is narrower) score at 6” and then glue a piece of decorative paper 5 X 5 1/2  to a panel of gold 5 X 5 5/8  to the front leaving 1/8 border around the top, folded edge and bottom,  then place the plain edge die from Classic Borders on the cut edge of the front to die cut and make a decorative front to the card.  Cut a piece of gold with the fancy Delicate Border and glue to the back of the front curved edge to match curves. Cut another piece of decorative paper 2 3/4 X 5 1/2 and die cut the left side with the plain Classic die (keep the piece you cut off for the back of the front to make the edge look nice while card is open).  Glue the decorative paper to a gold panel 5 3/4 X 5 5/8 and cut another gold decorative border from the Delicate Borders to cover the paper’s cut edge (plain curves against the gold) embellish “seam” with cream pearls.  Finish the inside with the large sentiment from the Noel Sentiments, stamping with VersaMark on cream shimmer and embossing with golf fine line powder. Round the edges with a punch and glue to gold panel.
Back to the front: Die cut Ornament base from cream card stock, inside ornate ornament from gold card stock, Festive Holiday die from gold card stock and Decorative Oval die from gold card stock.  Stamp using Tuxedo Black Memento (if using Alcohol Markers to color), the Holy Family, 2 pine cones and the Silent Night Scroll, die cut each with coordinating dies and color.  Pinecones are: YG07, YG63,YG67,E53,E33,E35,E37.  Scroll is: E42,E43,E44,Y32,E50,E51,E33,R24, candle on scroll: E50,E51,E53,Y32,YR23,YG07,YG63.

Glue the gold Decorative Oval onto card front close to right side but not overlapping gold edge.  Glue Festive Holiday die cut to card front on left side of Decorative Oval at an angle so that Festive Holiday hangs out over folded edge.  Pop up scroll onto (make sure CANDLE is vertical, not the scroll) and over the bottom portion of Festive Holiday die cut.  Pop up cream base of Ornament onto card front making the middle rounded part of ornament match the rounded part of the Delicate Border (it will partly cover the scroll).  Glue inside intricate ornament onto base and then the Holy Family.  Add cream pearls to centers of snowflake designs and larger ones top and bottom.  Pop up pine cones at the top of the ornament then add a small gold wired bow to the top of ornament over the pine cones.

Matthew 2:9-11 tells of the wise men and their gifts to the King of kings, Jesus.

When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
