Card Making comes easily to me – Creating 3D items…not so much! This week’s Challenge at Add A Little Dazzle was to create an Ornament using Dark Chocolate Craft Metal and Brushed Bronze Craft Metal. I LOVE both of those colors. In fact, they’re my faves! But…I couldn’t find my mojo! Finally, I found these photos from a family trip to Italy a few years ago and knew I needed to fit all of them on an Ornament. Hope you like it. 🙂
I used SU!’s Circle Collection Framelits to cut 12 Circles in 3 graduating sizes – 3 Dark Chocolate Craft Metal, 3 Brushed Bronze Metal, 3 Cardboard, and 6 from a Sticker Sheet.
I used 3 different Embossing Folders on the metal circles – SU! Stylish Stripes, Beautifully Baroque and Triangles.
I adhered the Sticker Sheets to one side of the cardboard circles and ran a ribbon down the center of them.
I then adhered the Craft Metal Circles on top of the Sticker Sheets alternating colors. To create the “loop” for the top, just fold down a piece of the ribbon and trapped it between the metal and cardboard. The bottom loop was created in the same way.
The photographs were cut with the Circle Collection Framelits using smaller circles than the ornament circles and then they were adhered to the metal using Sticky Strip or Score Tape.
Bows were adhered to the tops of both sides of the ornaments using Glue Dots. (The Ornament is double-sided.
A small bauble was attached to the bottom of the ribbon loop.
