3D twist at 613 Avenue Create


Good Morning,
Today we have a brand new challenge over at 613 Avenue Create.
As always its Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of Creating a 3D card.
Here is my project for the challenge…
The front


The sides
I just love these pyramid cards they look so complicated, but are really easy to make and can be made in any size you like.
You can find lots of tutorials online for these.
This one was made using three, four inch squares of gold pearlescent card.
The paper is from a digital set called Nordic Gold available here from Mninedesigns.
I made the flower by stamping onto vellum and heat embossing WOW embossing powder. The stamp is the Four Petal Flower Set from Stamps by Chole - here.
I only used the middle size and the smallest flower but stamped them several times. I then layered them to create the flower.
The die cut reindeer were made using the Tonic reindeer family.
The snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
The gems and brown glitter are from my stash.
