Christmas Ornament using Joys of the Season Candy

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I wanted to participate in the new challenge blog Exploring Cricut. For this week's challenge they are using the Cricut Celebrations cartridge and the candy image on page 111. It is mentioned that a similar image is on Christmas Cheer. I was beginning to think that I could not play along but I remembered Joys of the Season has a candy image too. I hope it is ok to use a different cartridge than the ones specified. I am sharing my project with you!
I am exploring the ornament feature in Joys of the Season. I think the different ornaments would make cute little stocking stuffers or gifts for those special teachers and co-workers.
Page 47 - Candy image. I used the ornament feature on shift and cut the pink paper at 3.25". All the cuts are same size.
Page 79 - Ornament feature and regular key, I cut a piece of vellum to show behind the pink paper and a piece of white cardstock to layer behind the vellum. I used the white cardstock because the candy paper is double sided and it would have been seen through the vellum.
Using the Ornament feature with the shift key, I cut the pretty candy patterned paper.
Using the regular main image, I cut the ornament again in the candy pattened paper for the backside.
Stamp on back is Christmas Crafts from Michael's. Added lots of inking and a green braid for a hanger.

Hope you enjoy! Here is a link to a previous card that I used the candy cut on. Hopefully it will inspire you to try the cute candy cut!
