Altenew Post (DIY Ornament)

Hello friends!
Today's my turn to share a project with you over Altenew Card Blog.

Altenew File11

I had an idea with using the Cover Dies and Shape Dies.
This is is how it started....

I took the process photos, so it's easier to for you to visualize the steps.

Embossing supplies used here : Embossing Ink, Silver,, Platinum
Altenew File5
Embossing supplies used here: Rose Gold and Copper.
DIY ornament #1
I embossed it several times. This way, it strengthen the piece and adds volumes and shine, too.

I also did a colorful version, too.
Altenew File9

I added some shine by embossing the piece with Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder.

I hope that you love this idea and perhaps this inspires you to give it a try!

Very pretty tree ornaments. I like the different looks you achieved.

These ornaments are gorgeous. I am reminded of crocheted ornaments. Simply put you have outdone yourself!

Now this idea is downright GENIUS. These little ornaments are a brilliant way to use the cover dies and patterned paper. Only from the fertile mind of Virginia Lu could something this clever materialize. Guess I'll have to, CASE it, as well.
