Introducing 3D Holiday Vignettes Blog Hop and Glimmer
Way back when 3D Vignettes were introduced, messages started to come in by crafters begging for the same thing, but for Christmas. You also asked that we keep supplying new inserts. Well, your wish is our command! Introducing 3D Holiday Vignettes plus new Glimmer Designs. If you are not familiar with these popular dies, stay tuned - lots of information follows.
Hi there, today we are sharing with you a great new collection by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace with a blog hop featuring new Vignettes for the holidays and the new Holiday Glimmer Designs will blow your socks off. So.....
What's a 3D Vignette?
A 3D Vignette is a dimensional card that folds down flat. It has a front layer, a back layer and several in between layers that are held stable by slotted side pieces. These layers allow you to build depth into a diorama or tunnel type card. We take all of the guesswork out of the equation by giving you mix and match layers, including sentiments to stack into a Vignette. So far, we've released 3D Vignettes and Shadowbox Vignettes.
What's more, you can use your own supplies to fill them up as well. The bonus is that each of these layers also works for your other types of cards you make. A budget crafter from day one, Becca keeps the "mix and match" sensibility alive in Holiday Vignettes so that you get a lot of bang for your buck. What does that mean?
1. These vignettes are interchangeable with your other vignettes.
2. Holiday Designs can be used for non-holiday designs after the season.
3. You can use these elements to make flat, stand-alone cards too.
About 3D Holiday Vignettes
Layered Die sets were introduced with 3D Vignettes and people quickly realized you could use individual elements in flat cards or you could use them layered together in a diorama. Shadowbox Vignettes continued the tradition and as you might guess, these new layering sets can be used in both Shadowbox Vignettes and 3D Vignettes.
3D Holiday features three new facades (each including a sentiment) using the same shapes that came in the original 3D Vignettes - Round (snow globe), Arch, and Cabinet.
In addition, there is a new layering set for each - a round set, an arch set and a set to fit the new cabinet. Join us as we give you a full-on look at all of the new sets.
My project for today is using one of the brand new plates from the Holiday Glimmer Collection called Merry Filigree Quatrefoil. I really wanted to make this christmas card for this year with traditional colors so i found some yummy new papers from Kaisercraft and added a subtle gold paper to match the gold glimmer i used for my new plates. Since this plate has 3 separate pieces i could add the gold glimmer to the red paper for a base and then cut the other piece from red with the sentiment and pop it up. I carefully trimmed around my glimmer to give it a nice shape and make it fit on all the layers under it.
And i wanted to make it just a little bit more like a country christmas card so i also added a layer of kraft under my glimmer piece using one of my favorite dies from the shadowbox collection. Then a layer of trees and gold followed by wood and gold and then finally more kraft to finish it. I was really happy how all of these tones and textures melted together so well.
And the flowers are already made but you can do them with your poinsettia die from our Christmas collection from last summer. I also found some pretty gold ribbons and those cute little pinecones from Hobby Lobby. It add the perfect touches to finish off my card.
As you can see up above this is a really gorgeous plate that can really add so much to a project or maybe like my box below can add just that little touch of detail in just the right shade of foil to make your project look that much more special. And of course be sure and get out all those other Becca Feeken Christmas dies so you can mix a few of those into it too. Can you see the shadowbox and
snowflake dies on this one?
