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:

I thought this cabinet would be great all lit up so i added in some fairy lights. I backed the cabinet with chipboard and attached the battery mount on the back of the cabinet. I used the Cabinet sentiment on the front of the Cabinet and have the Reindeer prancing in the background.  It really looks stunning at night with the lights on. Below is a peek at what the fairy lights look like



First up is 
S4-995 Cinch n Go V Etched Dies are the flowers i used on this project. 

Here is what the plates actually looks like.

  9. Hello Karan,
    This 3D card is truly spectacular! I love the colors you used and then to see that it lights up, wonderful. I also like the way the spine on each side is rounded and has a finished look. Was creating the added on finished look difficult?

    1. Hi Connie thank you for dropping by. Basically what I did was measure the width and length of the side adding a quarter inch on each left and right to score so that I could fold in the score and I used that to attach. Hope that helps. You might want to make it a bit larger to make room for the tabs that will stick out when you add the inside panels too. Something to consider
