Glimmering Snow Flurry ornaments

It may not snow here at Christmas and I am definitely no snow flake expert But I made these with my bigshot Snow flurry die.
 The snow flake is a combination of three die cuts in different materials.
Silver Glimmer paper, acetate (aka window sheets), on a Marina mist cardstock base.
Can you imagine these hanging in your window, catching the sunlight with all that bling and shine?
In your favourite Christmas colour hanging on your tree...
The centre of my snow flake is a facetted button from Stampin' Up! with a rhinestone stick on jewel in the centre of that.
I love how each element just builds on top of the other.
The acetate bends upwards and gives it a gorgeous 3D effect.
Here's the recipe:
Stampset: none
Ink: white stazon ink (for the edges of the acetate)
Cardstock: Marina Mist
Acetate - window sheet.
Other: Glimmer paper in silver (also comes in champagne and red)
$8.95 - see page 18 of the holiday catalogue.
Big shot $150 (ask me how to get your big shot for only $75)
BigZ die - snow flurry  $37.95
Embossing folder: Petals a plenty $13.95
Punch: Scallop circle
Facetted buttons
Rhinestone jewel
Baker's twine (Island Indigo).

  1. Love, love these. Had not thought of acetate. You could decorate your Christmas tree centered around these ornaments, the possibilites are endless. Thanks for sharing, might have to case these.
