Merry Christmas – or Meri Kerihimete as spoken here in New Zealand
I have the last of my Christmas cards using the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace The Christmas Flourishes Collection. I love this gorgeous frame and embellishments from the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Frame Etched Dies from the Christmas Flourish Collection by Becca Feeken. And once again I have used a non-traditional colour scheme of silver and blue with some very pretty pale blue poinsettias and some stunning holly leaves in green.
Today’s creations were made with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Project for Today
For my card I have created a 5″ x 7″ base and used dark blue and silver layers with a pale blue embossed layer using the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Flourish 2D Embossing Folder on the top. I have added some extra decoration using a frame from the Spellbinders Layering Mini-Slimline dies and a decorative flourish from the Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Marquis Etched Dies. I have backed the pinhole frame with silver cardstock and added it to a plain pale blue background with foam tape aand then was added over the background decorative elements. The sentiment and flourish has been added to the centre of the frame and to finish I have added some holly made using dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Frame Etched Dies around the flowers. This card was so quick and easy to put together.
I have die cut two sentiments and flourishes – one in silver and one in dark blue. I have adhered them together slightly offsetting the silver over the blue for the sentiment to pop in the centre of the frame.
I have added some glitter to the flowers using clear gloss gel medium on a paintbrush to go along with the iridescent gems for some Christmas sparkle.
The flower centres of the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Frame Etched Dies were perfect to go with the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Poinsettia Etched Dies Etched Dies. The soft yellow was perfect with the pale blue poinsettias.
