AI Float Cuttlebug Embossed Ornament
Whew, that's a long title, lol! This piece is a combination of several different things that have inspired me over the past few days. I found this ornament template recently while surfing some blogs - I have no idea where. If you recognize it, please let me know the blog addy so I can give proper credit. Then, someone posted a card recently using the AI Float technique from an old Technique Junkie newsletter. Again, have no clue who it was, but it stayed in the back of my mind.....mostly I keep seeing things and thinking, 'hmmm...that would look great Cuttlebugged and embossed!' I pulled out an AI Float piece I'd done back when that issue came out and thought it would be perfect for what I had in mind.
First, I covered the piece with Versamark and clear embossed. Then I ran it thru the Cuttlebug, hit the high spots with Versamark and gold embossed. I traced the shape onto the back of the piece and cut it out. More gold ep on the edges, some ribbon, a sentiment (Oxford Impressions) stamped on a scrap and - poof! AI Float Cuttlebug Embossed Ornament.

UPDATE! I found the artist who posted the ornament template (thank goodness for Google Blog Search!) Here is a link - Eclectic Visions of an Altered Journey.
