Pewter - Ruby Rock-it

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).
