A New Die Series!

This is a hard post to write, tomorrow it will be 6 months since my dad passed away (Jillian's grandfather).  It hasn't been easy as we miss him so much.  There are so many great memories we have together and one is all the stained glass he did for us and many others as gifts.  After retiring from farming he became a stained glass artist!
So Jillian decided we needed a series of dies to honor the memory of her grandpa.
Introducing Grandpa's Glass...
There are two dies in the series so far, Grandpa's Glass: Candles and Grandpa's Glass: Lantern
which is the one I used for this card.
They are designed to layer and mat with our Basic Rectangle Backdrop and our Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die sets for the perfect matting! Jillian and I love layering on a card!

For this card I just cut the Grandpa's Glass: Lantern in black cardstock, then layered onto the two backdrop die cuts. I added the Holly from the Holly & Swirls Die Set and the sentiment is from Shine Bright, which coordinates with both Grandpa's Glass dies as well as the new Christmas Lights Shaker Die Set.  The sentiment strip is from our new Goody Bag Mega Die Set.

There are so many options with these dies, you could use vellum and color in the areas, inlay colored pieces such as the holly or candles, use for a luminary ~ the possibilities are only limited to your imagination!
