metal embossed ornament card

I think this card turned out so well! I used Make-the-Cut software, my cricut, the embossing tool and mat from Cri-Kits.com and Lettering Delights "Trim The Tree" graphics file to create this card. The card is 8.5 x 5.5 and I cut the large ornament at 3 inches, the wide ornament at 2.5 inches and the long ornament at 2 inches. I used the metal and embossing tool and mat from Cri-Kits.com to emboss the insides of the ornament and then cut the ornaments out with my Cricut and the standard blade. I double matted the card using a piece of dark red cardstock from Archivers and a piece of white cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes Folder and my Cuttlebug. I also created mats for the ornaments and used AC Cardstock's foil (different colors), I also used the AC Cardstock in silver foil for the hangers. The sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge's "Reindeer Kisses" stamp set and the mat is Spellbinders "Label #4" set. I hope y'all try out the Lettering Delights graphics to create cricut files, they are easy, fun and inexpensive!

I love the look of bright shiny metal! I made a frame using it but haven't been brave enough to put it on cards lol. Now I have to try!
