Today I'm sharing a festive and beautiful Christmas card featuring the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Joy Crescent Card Builder Die Set. I've heat embossed the die cuts and created stain glass poinsettias to accent the card.
The Amazing Paper Grace - Creative Encouragement Community Facebook group includes exclusive tutorial content. I'll be creating a mixed media tutorial there on the 13th of each month. My tutorial today includes a detailed step by step photo tutorial teaching you how to create these fabulous Stained Glass Poinsettias. If you're not a part of this fabulous and encouraging group you can join HERE.
Amazing Paper Grace provided the dies used in this project.
The featured elements of this card are the Amazing Paper Grace Joy Crescent Card Builder die cuts. I've embellished with 49 and Market flowers from my stash, pearls, and a jewelry piece.
***Tip*** The Joy to the World sentiment is part of a larger die cut with gorgeous scrollwork around it. I just wanted the sentiment portion, so with a few snips, I cut it away from the scrollwork with scissors.
The snowflakes are die cut from silver glitter paper using the snowflake die from the Celebrate Scrollwork Card Builder set.
The glittery design on the background is unicorn effect paste spread through a snowflake stencil then sprinkled with superfine glitter. Although it doesn't show up will in the photos, the background sparkles beautifully.
One final shot. Be sure to check out the tutorial for these Stained Glass Poinsettias in the Amazing Paper Grace - Creative Encouragement Community Facebook HERE.
