We all love interactive and kinetic cards! Introducing the Christmas Cascade Collection!
This holiday collection allows you to make a Cascading Card inside of a Shadowbox Frame, mounted on a card base or unmounted. Don’t worry, these motifs make great conventional cards as well.
We listened to you, and we heard loud and clear that our community loves dynamic and purposeful cards. In previous collections we gave you 3D Vignettes in a Christmas way. Now we’ve found a way to merge a Collection favorite, Shadowbox Vignettes, in a new format.
Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to start my Christmas Card making!
What’s a Christmas Cascade?
Amazing Paper Grace takes a spin on Christmas by building a new collection around something you already have in your stash – the Shadowbox Dies. Becca loves building upon what you already have and making it new again.
Christmas Cascade is made up of sets of 3″ motif dies where each set has 3 motifs. That’s enough for each leaf of your waterfall but again, you could make them the center of your A2 or your A7 card. These, paired with the Waterfall base will allow you to use any dies to make your next Waterfall Card.
The Inspiration behind Christmas Cascade
The inspiration for Christmas Cascade was to produce a motif to use from an enclosure card all the way up to full A7 card with background layers. This “cardlet” size has been a favorite in our stash because the elements can easily transition into all of the Amazing Paper Grace Collections and to all size cards. Hint: This is not the last time you will see “Cardlets”
Today I am really excited to share with you a very elegant card made with the gorgeous new Elegant Holiday Glimmer Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken. I have embellished this card with the beautiful poinsettias from the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go Poinsettia Etched Dies Etched Dies A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken as well as adding some accents from the Christmas Cascade Collection – Snowflake Splendor Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken and the Holly Frame Gala Etched Dies Christmas Cascade Collection by Becca Feeken. The background die is the beautiful Shapeabilities Ornamental Valance Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken.
If you want to learn how to make these blue poinsettias I have a free video here on the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Encouragement Facebook Group on Facebook.
I am so happy to have most of my Christmas cards done early for a change and it has been so easy with the Christmas Cascade collection.
