Amazing Christmas Grace!

Good evening!  I hope you had a great day.  It's starting to snow here and it inspired me to do a white monochrome card with pops of color!  I adore this die set from Spellbinder's Amazing Paper Grace.  This particular card was from the November 2018 Card kit.  I have looked at all the inspiration out there regarding this set and each one is as different as the next.  I love versatile die sets to build my stash with.  For this card I used 4 layers, the first one was used as a stencil so that I could get an imprint with texture paste and glitter.  Upon inspecting the final outcome, I think I could have skipped this step as you don't see much of it.  I popped each layer with thin foam tape to add dimension and then colored the images in non-traditional Christmas colors. For the card base I used the outline die and left it slightly hanging over a creased piece of card stock.  For the top layer I used iridescent  ivory card stock to add a little sparkle.  I do hope you love it!

Products used:  White cs, iridescent ivory card stock, ranger texture paste, Wow pink glitter, Wow iridescent glitter, Spectrum Noir alchohol markers, Bertech foam tape, art glitter glue, and Spellbinder's Amazing Paper Grace November 2018 die kit of the month set.
