Wow it is hard to believe that it is just 6 months until Christmas! Where has the year gone… Anyway I have officially started making my Christmas cards and I was rummaging through all the Amazing Paper Grace Christmas dies and there was so much to choose from and I should have a lovely range of cards by the end of the year. This year I have decided to go with a pink, green, gold and white theme for my Christmas cards. I started with making lots of pretty pink and green poinsettias from the Amazing Paper Grace November 2020 Die of the Month – 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh die set and then for this card I have added them to card made using the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Dies, Silent Night Make A Scene Dies and Elegant Holiday Sentiments. Once the flowers were made this was a super quick and easy card and super elegant Christmas card.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my Christmas card I have made a 5″ x 7″ base card and layered the front with gold and white cardstock – with the top layer embossed using the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Flourish Embossing Folder to add some texture to the background. I then die cut the frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Noel Mini Slimline Dies – the base out of gold cardstock and the top out of white cardstock. After adhering the frame together I added it to the card front with foam tape. I then hot foiled the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Holiday Sentiments in gold foil and then die cut the sentiment using the inner die from the frame and then inserted it inside the frame.
I die cut three Santa sleighs using the die from the Amazing Paper Grace Silent Night Make A Scene Dies – two from white cardstock and one from gold cardstock. I stacked these together and adhered them to the top of the frame as shown.
I have made the poinsettias using the poinsettia dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – November 2020- 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh out of flower shaping paper. I have assembled them with two petals of one size and one petal of the next size down. I added a gold gem to the centre of the flowers and then added them over the coordinating leaves from the same die set die cut from green cardstock in two different shades.
To finish I have added some gold gems around the flowers.
