Glitter Photo Ornament

This year I made these photo ornaments for the kids.

 I used white cardstock for my base, stamped and embossed with red embossing powder.  For the red glitter framed I cut it twice and ran both pieces through my Xyron.  After gluing then together and leaving the top with adhesive I sprinkled with red glitter, pushed is down to get a nice coverage and shook the rest of it off.  I did the same thing with "Joy" using gray cardstock and silver glitter.  I have pop up dots behind the frame so that their picture can slide behind.  I welded the 2011 together with Design Studio and attached it to the scroll.  There is a pop up dot behind the scroll.  For the hanger I used half of a pipe cleaner and have a button on each side of the base where the pipe cleaner goes through. 

I am entering this in Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge and they want to see Glitter on your projects.

Glitter, glitter everywhere! I love it! The rich red glitter frame, and the contrast with the silver "joy," are really eyecatching! I hope you'll join us again at Frosted Designs!
