Snowflake Ornament

Hi! Today I am sharing an ornament I made using a tag and a snowflake from My Scrap Chick.

I used my ornaments on our Christmas tree, but you could use them for package decorations or in your windows.

Here are the images I used.

Snowflake Layers  and Ornament Gift Tag from My Scrap Chick
Dark red cardstock (Recollections)
Glossy white cardstock ( Stampin Up)
Silver pearlescent cardstock (Recollections)
Foam tape and dots
Zig fine tip glue pen and liquid glue
Red gems
Silver ribbon

Each ornament is five inches tall with a 2 3/4 inch snowflake in the middle. Each ornament is assembled on a 2 inch pentagon. For each ornament you will need five tags, a total of ten white decorative layers and one snowflake, along with the pentagon. 

Fold the ornaments in half and add a white filigree layer to the outside and inside of each ornament. I used the fine tipped Zig glue pen for this.

Glue  the ornaments to each side of the pentagon with about 3/8 inch overlapping  as shown.

Assemble and attach the snowflake to the center using foam tape. Add a red gem to the center of the snowflake.

Separate the layers to give the ornament dimension. Use small foam dots up near the fold if need be. Use a foam dot between the layers at the  tip to hold that section closed. Run a hanging ribbon through.

I love how these ornaments turned out! Why not give them a try. 
Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.

Happy holiday crafting!

Christmas Sofie

Hi! I've been busy making Christmas cards, and the adorable Christmas Sofie is the perfect image to use for a festive holiday card.

The red base of my card is 5 3/8 inches. I used Recollections cardstock for the base and the mats. The white mat is 5 1/8 inches and the patterned mat is 5 inches. The patterned mats use Christmas glitter cardstock from DCWV, and the white mat, ornament and bow were cut from glossy cardstock from Stampin Up.

The large ornament is 6 inches tall and the smaller ornament is 4 3/4 inches tall.  The patterned paper for the large ornament is by Recollections. I added a red lace bow to the large ornament.

I attached the Christmas Sofie image to a 4 inch oval in Design Space. I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. The image was attached with foam tape.


Skin: TN2, FS3, FS 6, FS2
Hair: GB7, GB5, CT 3, CT2, CT1
Dress: PP1, PP2, PP3, PP4, PP6
Ornament: BT4, BT1, Blender
Holly: JG6, JG5, LG5, DR6

I added a DCWV mat and a sentiment from Kraftgineer to the inside.

I love how this card turned out!

Eris on the Sleeping Bear

Hi! I have been busy making Christmas cards.
Today I am sharing a shaker Christmas card featuring the adorable image, Eris on the Sleeping Bear. This is such a cute image!

The card svg I used is from Bird's Cards.
I made my card using several types of cardstock. The bottom layer is silver pearlescent cardstock, the next layer is purple glossy cardstock and the top layer is light purple glitter cardstock.
I used my Fuse tool to make the shaker element of white glitter and snowflake confetti. I attached it to the back of the opening with clear tape.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, then added glitter gems to the tree. The image was added to the card with foam tape. I added the glossy oval cut from that snowflake layer behind the shaker element.

I added a Christmas tree from Cricut to the right of the shaker element and added glitter gems to the tree.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!

Polar Christmas Bear Cocoa Holder

Hi! Winter will be here soon! Time for some yummy cocoa! Today I am sharing a cute double cocoa holder.

For my cocoa holder I used the adorable New Release image from Little Blue Button Stamps, Polar Christmas Bear. The New Releases can be found here:

I made the cocoa holder in design space. You can find the file in the Cricut Community under Cocoa/Tea Holder.

Here is the open holder showing the two pockets for the cocoa packets.

Here is the holder from the side.

I used snowflake patterned cardstock from my stash for the mats. Red cardstock from Recollections was used for the holder and the double mats.

I colored my image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and accented with gel pens. I added snowflake sequins to the background and small seed beads on the Christmas tree.

As a last step I punched two holes through all the layers 2 inches in from each side, then tied the holder shut with blue Christmas ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my project. Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great, crafty day!
