LIL PATCH OF CRAFTY FRIENDS #196 -- SPONSORED BY ALEX SYBERIA -- DECEMBER 18, 2022

The design team could choose any image or cut file for their project, so I chose this gorgeous Layered Christmas Ornament and Bow cut file.  Here is what I created:




I was in need of some presents for my purple-loving work besties, so I got to work choosing glitter and shimmer cardstocks and regular cardstocks to go with them.  For some, I didn't have cardstock to match, so I busted out some Distress inks in regular and Oxides to make my own papers.  That would be the lightest layers on the first 2 ornaments.  For the third one, I just chose a silver shimmer paper to add to the mix.  I made 2 of each, for a total of 6.  That way, I could give them each a set.




  My last day of work for the year (YAY!) was this past Wednesday (thanks in part to some inclement weather on Thursday), so I have already given them to my besties, and they loved them!  This cut file was very nice to work with, and I love that it gives me that layered look that some of those expensive dies have, for much cheaper!  Thank you, Alex for the pretty cut file!  Oh, and I didn't get the chance to add the bow, although I would have loved to!
