Introducing 3D Holiday Vignettes

Sponsored:  As a designer for Amazing Paper Grace, I receive dies to create projects.   I'm also a designer for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and receive product to use for projects.

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 Projects For Today:

I've used Grand Christmas Lattice Arch for my projects today.  
My first project is a card that I made with this beautiful set of dies.  I really like how the metallic paper looks behind the lattice!  

Here is what the plate actually looks like.

When I first looked at this die set, I wondered how it would look for a card.  Once I cut it and started to work with it, I was captured by its uniqueness and how pretty it is layered over metallic paper.  Of course, this die set can be used to make a 3D Vignette!  I decided to use it for the front of card.  I cut 3 layers of the lattice from blue paper.  Each layer behind the stamped scene is fastened without any dimension.  The edges, however, are fastened with narrow strips of black 3D Foam Sheet.  It's subtle dimension that adds shadow to the lattice. 

For my second project, I made a wrap for a candle chimney or vase. It would be pretty filled with shimmery Christmas ornaments!  

I used vellum to wrap around a clear candle chimney/vase.  The lattice is cut from pearlescent dark blue paper but my photo doesn't show the shimmer of the paper.  I've added glitter to the stamped winter scene and die cut snowflakes. 

To make the white frame, which is cut from a shimmer paper, around the scene, I used the outer die and the die with "Away in the Manger".  Then I cut out the words leaving a frame. I added a few holly leaves with pearls on the frame edge along with snowflakes scattered around the frame.  The holly leaves were cut with a die from Holly Jolly Christmas.

I hope you've found some inspiration from my projects!  This die set can be used to make so many different projects, even non holiday projects.
