Another Holiday Ornament

I wanted to try something different with the Stampin' Up! holiday ornament this time....NO stamps and NO designer paper! This one relies entirely on the texture from embossing folders. I was going to use this as my sample for the SUO Challenges Design Team, but since I used (non-SU) white tulle on it, it didn't really qualify.

Nevertheless, it is gorgeous in real life, and I want to make more of them to adorn my tree.  The tree that we haven't even purchased, yet. Yes, we are seriously lagging in the Christmas department this year, but in my defense, I have been dealing with Dad's estate stuff, so I haven't had the time I normally would have to devote to all things crafty.

I do wish my camera took better pictures of the details. Maybe that's what I should ask Santa for Christmas. That old point-and-shoot camera just doesn't cut the mustard! There's a sneak peek of the new LARGE rhinestones that are coming in the Spring Catalog. They're the same size as the large pearls (8 mm).

And now, for your holiday enjoyment, here's a cute and funny video from Stampin' Up! wishing us all a merry Christmas: 12 Days of Christmas, SU style
