Hi friends! A very Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you’re having a stellar week so far! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I participated in the Bearly Arts ‘Merry Craftmas’ Ornament Exchange this year and wanted to share the long faceted Christmas ornament I made for my exchange partner, Cat, in Florida! I made several long and short faceted Christmas ornaments about three years ago and thought this style ornament in a country plaid theme would go over well! She has received it and loved it, so now I can post it!

I cut the ornament base from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock along with panels from patterned cardstock from the Christmas Holiday Print and Christmas Print cardstock pads. I constructed the ornament, and adhered the panels and lots of pearl bling.

I used some red and white checked ribbon from my stash for the hanger, and added a circular sentiment stamped from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Snowflake Greetings stamp set and heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, then punched with a Stampin’ Up 3/4″ circle punch and a Fiskars 1-1/2″ circle punch, which I adhered to the top.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I’m delighted that Cat loved it and am super proud to have made a new friend in the process! Definitely looking forward to participating in the ornament exchange again next year!
