On top of the base papers, I cut a circle with a tail using Sure Cuts a Lot software and hung the Heartfelt Creations ornament from the circle. To make this embellished circle cut, you can just think of the circle as a clock face and cut it at 9:00, then make a straight line from 6:00 in a clockwise direction. The ornament was made with Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3335 Elegant Snowflake Medallion Pre-Cut Set and Heartfelt HCD 705 Creations Holly Ornament Die. I used Silver Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest. I also cut the holly leaves with the HCD 705 die.
The title is made with an oval tag from The Robin's Nest Animal Tag Sticker set. I love when I can use a sticker set in more than one theme. The numbers are also The Robin's Nest: gold glitter letters.
I cut four scroll shapes using Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Die and put three under my circle shape. I then trimmed the top two curls off of the last shape and used it under my title. This is a great way to repeat a design and make it the right scale for your needs. It is also a great way to stretch your dies to cut more than one shape! And while we are talking about dies, I want to give you a tip on how to use the beautiful detail dies you find at Heartfelt Creations. Cover the die with clear packing tape, so that the sticky side faces the cutting edge. Run the die through your die cutting machine with some scrap paper and you will now have the NON-stick side of the tape facing up in the die cutting side. This will make removing your paper from the die a breeze!
