I've been extra careful in stitching the Noel in Kreinik metallic. Usually, I stitch the background first. However, I decided it would be too confusing to try to fit the woven stitch around nonexistent red stitches. I was especially careful to not jump across any open spaces, but rather confined my threads on the back to the stitched lettering.
I stitched the right-hand pink ornament in what I call the Byzantine mosaic stitch in Kreinik metallic. The shine on the ornament is a faint pale pink, rather than white.
