Christmas House Ornaments

Hi Everyone,

I've got a quick last minute ornament or gift tag for you.
Start with your Simple House Ornament cover both sides in the paper of your choosing. I added a bit of shimmer using my clear shimmer pen.  I tried to capture it in the photos, but it's so subtle.  

Apply a thin layer of white acrylic paint to both sides of your Snowflake Border.  You won't need the whole border.  I placed mine on top of my ornament and got a basic placement idea and then trimmed it accordingly.  
Once your paint is dry emboss the snowflakes using Fractured Ice Embossing powder. 

Color your Tim Holtz paper doll using Distress Markers.  I also added some stickles for sparkle. 
Glue your snowflakes to your house(be sure you don't cover the hole in the top of the ornament).  Add your people using some foam tape for dimension.  Add stickers from the Tim Holtz Christmas clippings stack.  A little bakers twine and your ornament is finished.   

I liked this so much I made a second ornament using the same process, but these snowflakes are embossed with Charred Gold.The paper doll had a tiny jingle bell added to his hand.
Have a very Merry Christmas,
