Add A Little Ornament & Metal Offer!

Hi! It’s an Ornament challenge (or Anything Goes) this week at the Dazzling Diva Challenge #36.

For the ornament, I started off diecutting some white metal sheeting with the Tim Holtz rosette die. After attaching it to some cardstock at the back I added some green sequins as a handle.
I stamped one of Papermania’s latest stamps from the ‘Create Christmas’ range in white Stazon on the Dark Chocolate metal and then ran it though a dots embossing folder.
Metal is very soft and flexible and so to keep the dots from pushing back in, I added embossing paste into the holes to keep them solid.
Next, I adhered the metal to cardstock and trimmed it out. This was tricky- if I did it again, I’d stamp it twice, cut out the deers separately and then stick together.
I next die cut some snowflakes from an XCut Christmas symbols set and also the Die-namics ‘Let it Snowflake’ set in Brushed Copper.
I then slightly rubbed the dots with a file and this sanded away the top colour which helped accentuate the dots. Then, just add it all together!!

We are offering for a limited time Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet Week 5 Package. This package includes 6 sheets of Brushed Copper and 6 sheets of Dark Chocolate Craft Metal Sheets. These are the colours I’ve used in my little ornament.
