Amazing Paper Grace | Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection Intro Blog Hop

I love the calm serenity of white lilies – they are so beautiful as a wedding bouquet or equally stunning to express your sympathy. Today I have a card that is perfect for a beloved friend for all occasions and I have also created a coordinating basket to fill with special treats. (Here I have filled the basket with small chocolate Easter Eggs). These flowers are so easy to create and look so stunning as a single flower or as a bunch of flowers.

Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

For my card I have used the S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create a white on white decorative background.

I have decorated the card with the S4-1192 Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have used stacked three layers of the sentiment together to create more depth and allow the sentiment to ‘pop’.

The green leaves really stand out from the white background and help to accentuate the white flowers.

This card is quite flat and will be easy to post – always a bonus.

The butterfly from the S6-183 Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken adds a gorgeous finishing touch.

I have added pearls to accentuate the gorgeous background die.

The S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken also contains some pretty little flowers and leaves and here I have attempted to have pretty blue flowers cascading out of the oval and decorating the sentiment.

For my basket I have created a basic 4″ x 4 x 1 3/4″ box and embellished the box with the dies from the S4-1198 Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken. I have covered the joins with lilies and the tiny flowers from the same die set. The decorative handle has been created using the S4-1165 Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. I have finished the box with some gorgeous butterflies from the S6-183 Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

Amazing Paper Grace Flowers With Love

Kia Ora Kouto

Today I have another card featuring the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Marquis Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. I have been inspired by my Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team mate Rajni Chawla and how she snips decorative dies to create beautiful cards with lots of different layers. For my card I have used the inner decorative medallion die and created layers by snipping one die in half and and layering them behind the main medallion to fit a 5″ x 7″ card.

Today’s project was created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

The flowers are created using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken.

The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace With Love Regalia Card Builder Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken. This sentiment is so versatile and can be used for so many different occasions – birthday, wedding, sympathy and more.

The butterflies are from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. They are such a sweet addition to any card.

The green leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Flowers Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. These leaves are so beautiful to use and the green really makes the pink flowers pop. The silver leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go III Etched Dies by Becca Feeken and make a great accent for this card.

To complete my card I have used a gorgeous embossing folder by Spellbinders – Diamond Plaid embossing folder.
