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 Projects For Today:

Here is how the die actually looks like.

I decorated my card layering the Nativity scene on 3D tape. I also shaded the top layer with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I added handmade poinsettias. I used Spellbinders S4-960 - Cinch and Go Poinsettias. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders SDS-164 - Sentimental Christmas. Stamp and Die set.

My second project:

I created a little lantern. I used 12' by 4-3/4'. I scored it at 3-1/2, 7' and 10-1/2'. I left 1/2' flap at the end. Then I scored at 4-1/4' to create bottom flaps. I folded the side to see clearly where I place the dies to die cut the aperture. I placed the decorative dies without the outline dies and die cut. Then I die cut using outline die vellums. Then I die cut the same dies together with the outline die and glued together with vellum elements (I used double sided tape for vellum).

These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
