Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today I am back with another project that I created for the 2021 Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 release. This is a domed gift-topper ornament that I made with the fabulous new Funky Nature set.
As you can see from the photos, it is difficult to capture this project without the glare. And that’s because of the awesome Sizzix Shaker Dome that I used to create this sweet nature assemblage. I knew Sizzix made tiny domes, but did you know that they also make several other sizes of domes as well, including this larger 3.5″ circle dome I used here?
I love this larger dome size for making package toppers, and how perfect are these for ornaments for your tree? I used the new Funky Nature die set to create an assortment of natural elements to tuck inside the dome. There are feathers and leaves and branches, and a trio of the most adorable speckled eggs. I absolutely love the detail on those eggs. The second layer has all those amazing and intricate cut outs that give it such life-like detail. Blows my mind what can be done these days with dies.
To create this topper, I used two circle die sets to create the scalloped outline and inner window, and layered the background with beautiful older Tim Holtz paper from the Wallflower paper pad. The nature elements were die cut from a mixture of kraft stock cardstock and watercolor paper that was inked in beautiful neutral colors of Distress ink. I also tucked in some real feathers, twigs, and moss, gathered along my woodland walks.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you an awesome week ahead!
