Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday Die Day!
This week I'm featuring Charming Round Tag.
This is one of the Charming Christmas Collection die sets
designed by Becca Feeken.
It's a 9 piece die set that includes 4 interchangeable insert pieces and an 
insert cutting rim to create many designs to the tag shape. 
Also two charms and an ornament topper to complete the set.

The approximate measurements are:

Ornament Topper: 0.60 x 0.90 in 1.50 x 2.30 cm
Mitten Charm: 1.00 x 1.70 in 2.50 x 4.30 cm
Reindeer Charm: 1.65 x 2.30 in 4.20 x 5.80 cm
Decorative and Word Inserts (4 pcs): 2.30 x 1.00 in 5.80 x 2.50 cm
Insert Cutting Rim: 2.30 x 1.00 in 5.80 x 2.50 cm
Ornament: 2.65 x 3.00 in 6.70 x 7.60 cm

I've chosen to use Noel and the ornate insert inside the ornament,
also the ornament topper and reindeer.
Cut from a mix of ivory and gold mirror card.

For my card base I used a square of the Anna Griffin paper,
available in this pack here.
Next die cut a circle from the middle, pop this to one side.

I then used Classic Circles SM and LG to create a very narrow circle
from gold mirror card.

Place the die cut circle back into the aperture (the paper is double sided
and this is the pattern on the reverse).
Affix the narrow circle as a frame.

With the die cut ornament, place the gold behind to create a drop shadow
and fix the ornament topper in place.

I inked up multiple mini poinsettias.
Barn Door and Forest Moss Distress Inks.

Tied a piece of gold string around the ornament and placed onto the card front
with 3D Foam Squares.

Positioned and affixed the mini poinsettias in place,
added the reindeer and gemstones to finish.

It's a sort of Summer/Christmas card!
