It's a cracker!!

No, really!! it is!! Today’s Creative Expressions Design Team project is again something a little different.

I've used the Ivy Trellis Striplet Stamp. Which, on its own is a great image to use,

but for today’s project I have teamed it up to make a very effective background on this Cracker.

Stamping the image 4 times onto Black card stock using Perfect Medium and then going over the image with Decadent Bamboo Mica Powder.

Cutting each image to size and matt and layering it with some Gold Mirror card

before mounting each panel onto one of the sides of my Cracker which was made using the WE R Memory Keepers Candy Box Punch Board

and then securing the ends with some complementary Ribbon.

For the decoration, I cut out some of the images from the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Die - CED1434 Dandelion Clocks in Black card stock,

applied the Decadent Bamboo Mica Powder, spraying each layer with Spray and Shine to set the Mica

before layering them together using Cosmic Shimmer Glue

and then attached a Dazzler from the Gold Collection to finish off the flower.

Repeating the process for a second flower

and then attaching them to the cracker to complete the project.

A great addition to a Wedding table as a favour or name place or just a novel gift for your guests!!
Thanks for checking us out, see you soon.
