Eileen Hull's Sizzix Dies Fall-iday - Pucker Up!

This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team is making projects for Fall-idays -  creations using Eileen's Sizzix Dies with any holiday theme!

Today I've used Eileen's Embroidery Hoop Sizzix Die to make a Christmas Ornament!  I made this using a tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers where they use a real wooden hoop and real burlap.
I cut the hoop out of white mat board, then cut it again out of a piece of wood veneer that I used for the outside hoop. I cut a smaller circle out of burlap patterned paper and adhered that in the center of the hoop.
I cut a circle out of black card and white embossed the little mouse with the mistletoe on his tail onto it. Since I wanted it to look like a blackboard I didn't use my embossing buddy before inking so some of the white stuck to other places looking like chalk smudges.
I layered the black piece to a red scallop edge circle. I die cut the label and stamped the sentiment on it. I die cut and stamped the holly. Everything is popped up on foam dots. Then I adhered some vintage lace around the edge from the back and looped a piece of silver thread so I can hang it up.

It definitely looks like a chalkboard! Great idea - I'm always so focused on clearing off all of the smudges.
Neat card!
