I have another Christmas card to share with you today for my Christmas in July collection. I am really in love with this colour combination and I couldn’t stop playing with the Amazing Paper Grace Christmas collections. This card features the gorgeous classic Amazing Paper Grace Joy Flourish Doily from the Christmas Flourishes Collection by Becca Feeken. This set has everything needed to make a stunning card and all I have done is added some handmade poinsettias and leaves.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have made a base card of 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ out of white cardstock. I have layered gold and white cardstock to the front of the card and embossed the top white layer using the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Flourish Embossing Folder. I die cut the base of the Amazing Paper Grace Joy Flourish Doily out of gold cardstock and then die cut the edge using the base and the decorative die and adhered it to the edge of the base. I die cut three decorative dies out of white cardstock using the decorative die and the inner plain die to make a frame and stacked them together. I adhered them to the front of the base and added a single layer of the inner to the centre of the frame as shown. I die cut two ‘joy’ sentiments – one from gold cardstock and one from white cardstock and stacked them together with the gold sentiment on top. This was then added to the centre of the doily. I die cut the ‘TO THE WORLD’ sentiment out of a strip of 1/4″ strip of white cardstock and then matted it with gold cardstock and adhered it over the ‘joy’ sentiment.
I die cut several leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – November 2020- 3D Vignette Poinsettia Sleigh out of green cardstock and added them to the bottom left and top right of the decorative doily. I handcrafted pink and green poinsettias from the same set and added them over the leaves. To finish I added some holly leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Joy Flourish Doily in a different green cardstock around the flowers and other leaves.
To finish I added some gold pearls to the centres of the flowers, around the flowers and on the doily.
