Ornaments abound!

I know this isn't a traditional Christmas card color but I loved the concept of the gray and red together.  A few tips that will help you recreate this card: 1) The Framelits can be used all at the same time on the Big Shot platform allowing you to run it through, just once, for all three different ornaments. 2) I used two pieces of ribbon on this card. The first is 3 3/4" long and the raw edges are tucked to the back. The second piece is 8" long and I tied a bow that is attached on top with a glue dot.  3)  The paper piercing tool and essentials pack allowed me to create a straight line of holes to mimic strings for my ornaments.
