Well, this post didn't get written last night, like it normally would have, and I have a perfectly sane explanation. With a new order from the governor starting at midnight last night, in which we cannot spend time with people who do not live in our household, we made sure to spend time with family that we won't get to see until later in December. Those were precious moments, and honestly a little sad, too.
But no dwelling on the sad! There is so much for which to be grateful, and two of those things are stamping and Christmas! Project #9 in the 12 Projects of Christmas is not your everyday ornament. This Diamond Shaped Ornament is something I found in a recent email from Splitcoast Stampers. I knew immediately that I would have to find a spot for it in the 12 Projects of Christmas 2020. This 3D ornament is pretty clever, and with so many amazing ornament projects out there, I'm starting to think I need to have a paper crafting Christmas tree every year so that I can really spotlight all of them. Here is my diamond shaped ornament. Isn't it fun?
I tried to take pictures at different angles so you can see just how cool this ornament is. The shape is quite unique.
