Amazing Paper Grace | Holiday Medley Intro Blog Hop

This magical menagerie of dies helps celebrate one of the most festive times of the year through paper crafting! The Holiday Medley Collection consists of eight die sets and a Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Set that coordinates with one of the die sets. The array of dies can be mixed within existing die sets to offer more creative options. These include the Make a Scene Card Base and 3D Vignettes. The versatile new Merry Filigree Card Builder, Celebrate Scrollwork Card Builder and Joy Crescent Card Builder sets create different card formats from A2, A7, Mini Slimline, to Slimline. In addition, you can remove the Christmas Motifs and use them year-round. Visit each of the designers’ blogs for inspiration and ideas from the Holiday Medley Collection!

Today's projects were created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Featuring the S4-1130 Silver Bells Dimensional Doily set, I created three bell shapes to better show off this sweet set. Like Becca's other Dimensional Doily series, you just die-cut, fold each side, and slide into the slits to lock them into place.

My 5x7-inch card features a vellum shaker card panel which I accented the upper right corner with the three Bells Dimensional Doily. See the gold backing? I die-cut with gold mirror cardstock to show off the intricate design of the bells.

The other card is a 6-inch square card which I added half of a round dimensional doily. Both cards have the S4-960 Cinch and Go Poinsettia flower. Just love this flower die set! I hope these cards get you into the holiday spirit!

Designer's Tip: You can cut three bell shapes at the same time. Make sure to secure the insert die with washi tape to avoid slippage when die-cutting.

Very clever use of the bell die set. This set is a nice addition to the other doily die sets. Your projects are charming and I can see this set for wedding and anniversaries too. Thanks for the layout inspiration.
