Ornate Christmas Ornament

I love to put up Christmas Trees.  It's just another way to express myself artistically.  I hope to have a bigger home someday, and add more.  I have my largest tree in my living room and wanted that tree to SPEAK  the true meaning of Christmas. It's loaded with clear lights, burgandy and gold embellishments and lots of Nativity Ornaments. This year I'm adding these regal cross ornaments.  I think they will fit the theme perfectly.


I created this Ornate Cross Ornament using a stamp I purchased at a stamp show a couple of years ago.  The manufacturer is Holly Berry House.  They sale lots of medallion style stamps that would be gorgeous when stamped in repitition, cut and pieced together like I have above.  In addition, mine are double sided.  It took me a while to get them done ( I started them last year), but it was worth the time, and now I have a handmade ornament to pass down.   I'm going to shop for some gems to finish them off.  And I'm thinking some gold trim as a hanger will be perfect.  You can view more of Holly Berry's  gorgeous cross stamps HERE.
