CottageCutz Pocket Watch Beary Christmas Ornament

Yipee, today is reveal day for a special release  called "Homemade Christmas Gift Set" from CottageCutz.   There are 21 universal dies and 7 clear stamps in this box giftset.   Isn't this bear just darling.  You know I love my bears.  I can't resist his sweet face.
 To create this Christmas Ornament, I started with Tim Holtz Pocket Watch Die.  I cut it out about 5 times to get the dimension.  I cut the center out of four of the dies and layered one on top of the other.
 I cut designer paper for the inside and outside of the watch.  I stamped the little postal image from the Cottage Cutz Christmas Gift Set in the center.  I just love that little stamp.  I know I will be using it a lot for all my Christmas crafting.
 Almost all the embellishments were made from the dies in this gift set.  There is just so much you can do with them.  The flower was cut out three times.  I used my McGill Flower shaping tool to created the Poinsettia.  The leaves are the Winter Pine Branch.  The snowflake edging is the Winter Snowflake Wreath.  I die cut the wreath twice and cut it to fit around the pocket watch.
 The chain is created using a Martha Steward Border punch.  I just cut it so it would be rounded to look like chain and twisted it and attached the bow at the end.
 The little bear was paper pieced and some chalk applied to brighten up his sweet checks.  I used a white pen for the highlights on his nose and eyes.  Here are the dies I used:
