Coaster Ornament

I have TONS of round coasters and decided I'd better start using them! I really like this Christmas tree image from TAC's Joy of Christmas set. I inked the edges of my coaster with Noir Palette ink and then I used my circle Coluzzle template to cut a slightly smaller circle of red cardstock. I glued the red cardstock to the coaster and then I stamped my images with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder.

Please disregard the '2008' that I wrote on this. I really wanted to put the year on it, but I don't have number stamps that would coordinate wtih this. After I wrote the year, I realized the ink did NOT match the embossing. Other thoughts for this project are to raise the word 'Christmas' up a little higher and then add a photo. I really like the black and white polka dot ribbon. I think it adds a fun touch to the project.
Supplies-
4" Coaster
heat gun
red cardstock
