Wow where has the time gone!! Christmas is next week and I have been sorting out my Christmas cards to send. I have had so much fun creating with the The Christmas Flourishes Collection – there is so much variety in this collection and so easy to mix and match the different die sets. I love a blue, silver and white combination for Christmas cards and most of my cards this year have been made using this colour combination.
Today’s creations were made with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Project for Today
Today I have made a slimline Christmas card using the Amazing Paper Grace Flourished Ornament Slimline Etched Dies. This is such a fabulous set with all the gorgeous baubles and the Fluted Classic slimline die to create a very elegant frame to add the baubles to. I have used the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Holly Flourish 2D Embossing Folder from the same collection as a base for the baubles. I have hot foiled the bauble background for a shiny finish and used two different combinations of the baubles. I love the bow from the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Frame Gala Etched Dies and here I have added bows to the baubles. The holly leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Frame Etched Dies and the poinsettias are from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Poinsettia Etched Dies Etched Dies.
The sentiment is from the must have Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies. To finish the card I have added some pale blue iridescent gems to the centre of the flowers and on the card.
I have used the Spellbinders Essential Glimmer Rectangle Hot Foil Plate to foil the Skybright rectangle and then die cut the circles out using the circle die from the Amazing Paper Grace Flourished Ornament Slimline Etched Dies.
The sentiment has been die cut three times – two from blue cardstock and one from silver cardstock. I have stacked the sentiments together with the silver on the top and then added the sentiment to the base of the card as shown.
I have added glitter to the poinsettias for some Christmas sparkle. I use clear gloss gel medium with a paintbrush and then sprinkle Crystal Ultrafine glitter to the flowers.
