As some of you will know I am an independent StampinUp demonstrator and i hold workshops sometimes at home but this day at Rachels who kindly invited family and friends to make these delightful decorations for Christmas. Rachel had an awesome workshop where the ladies made the christmas cracker and the star. The christmas cracker is made from whisper white cardstock, the embossed it with the bigshot and an embossing folder and then we sponged it with shimmer paint Frost white(116854). Can you see the shimmer on the petals of the flower? It does look so pretty. We added a flower from the 5-petal flower punch (119880)and the boho blossoms punch (119858)and added the sentiment Merry Christmas from the contempo Christmas (121498) as it fit so well in the Decorative label punch (120907).
The star is made of DSP and cut so you can curl each of the layers to the opposite side. It is very pretty hanging but my photos are of it on the worktop. The DSP being double sided gives an amazing look to this star.
