Art Deco Snowflake 3D Bauble

Hi Bloggers.

I'm up at Creative Expresions HQ today running a Chalk Cloud masterclass - should be great fun!

Here's today's card -

I started by making the 3D element. I cut dies #1,#3 and #4 together from Sue Wilson's Art Deco Snowflake Die Set out of Antique Gold Pearl Card 5 times. I scored and folded each of then down the middle and then glued them together, half to half. Instead of sticking the final pair together (which you can do if you want to make a bauble for the tree - remember to add some twine before glueing) I cut die #4 from the set out of Rich Red Card, added a ittle Metallic Baker's Twine and glued by 3D element to it.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Milk Card using the Creative Expressions Shimmering Stars Embossing Folder. I dusted it with an Anti-Static Pad and then edged with Clear Perfect Medium Pen using my Tim Holtz Ruler. I added Ruby Slippers CS Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and set using a Low Speed Heat Tool.

I cut Sue's Checkerboard Poinsettia Border out of Antique Gold Pearl Card. I trimmed it and matted onto Rich Red Card. I stamped the sentiment from the CE Santa's Sentiments Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags and cut the next sized die out of Rich Red Card. I cut the single poinsettia from Sue's Poinsettia Flourish & Corner Die Set out of Rich Red Card twice and added them to the end of my sentiment flag.

I cut the corner from Sue's Poinsettia Flourish & Corner Die Set out of Rich Red Card twice and the single poinsettia once and added them to the top part of my card as shown.
