For Ruby Rock-it this month, we were asked to create projects based on some of our December / Christmas traditions. This layout is about the pewter ornaments that I collect each year. I used papers from the Le Jardin collection, because the backs were absolutely perfect for a Christmas page!
I thought of these silver tags right away for using on a pewter themed page. To give them a little more seasonal look I embossed them with a snowflake pattern.
I die-cut holly shapes from the papers, and doodled some stitches for a little definition. (I find doodling helps give die cut shapes a little more character).
If you would like to find out more about these pewter ornaments, please visit Amos Pewter's website. The ornaments are designed and hand-crafted in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. They ship internationally (and they are worth it).
