Cuttlebug Spot - Decorate the Table

As a follow up to last week's 'Invitations' challenge, the theme for this week's Cuttlebug Spot Challenge is:

'Decorate the Table'

I've made a set of place cards, favour boxes and a luminaria that match the invitations I made for last weeks challenge.

I used my Labels One Nesties to cut the place cards, cutting the blue layers in half, before embossing with my 'Snowflakes' folder, and glittering the edges. The snowflakes were cut using my 'Ice Crystal' die, and then coated with Glamour Dust.

I used my EasiScore Board to make the little favour boxes, decorating them with the same embossed pattern and snowflakes.

The luminaria took a bit more time...I layered up two pieces of card to make it more sturdy, using my Labels One Nesties again to cut the apertures. I embossed the frame with my 'Swiss Dots' folder, and added some more glittered snowflakes. I used tracing paper, embossed with the 'Snowflakes' folder to cover the apertures, before placing a few battery operated tealights inside.

Here's a photo of it in the dark...you can still just about make out the embossing.

For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely Cuttlebug Spot DT buddies.
