Five Days Of Christmas...Day 3

Over at My Creative Time we are doing 5 days of Christmas ideas for you. Hope you are getting some great ideas for some last minute gifts or treats or cards or decor. The sky is the limit when you use MCT products!

I made a pretty ornament for you today. Well, it's a sorta big ornament or it could be a little decor piece to hang in that perfect little spot. 

I used a svg cut file for the base of the snowflake and then, of course, jazzed it up with MCT products.

I used my favorite sparkly glitter paper from American Crafts.....LOVE that stuff! Anyway, I cut my top layer from that and the bottom layer is from some patterned paper.  

I used the large rosette die and cut my polka dot paper with it, and assembled. I use hot glue to glue it to a circle on the back to hold it in place. Then I hot glued it to the center of the snowflake. 

I also used the scallop and stitched circle dies. I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, the sentiment in the center of the circle. It is from the new stamp set called A Day In that set!!!

  I added foam dimensionals under the scallop but I also used hot glue to attach it to the snowflake. I don't want it coming off!!! How pretty is all that sparkle?!!! And it does not flake isn't even rough like most glitter paper. Very smooth, and cut great in my Cameo, and didn't ruin my blade!

I love how this came out and you should really make some of these. Very easy to make, but a very impressive display. Anyone would love to receive one of these!!!

Here's what I used.
