Amazing Paper Grace December 2022 Die of the Month

I am so excited for the release of the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month – Sweetheart Envelope and Notecard Set. This set is so beautiful and can be used in so many ways. For my projects I have made a small 4/14″ x 5 1/2″ card and some sweet envelopes to hold some gift cards. I was inspired by one of the other Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team members using the heart die to create a butterfly and here I have laid the ‘wings’ over layered dies from the small decorative rectangle dies from the Sweetheart Envelope and Notecard Set, Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Rectangles from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken. The pretty flowers from the Sweetheart Envelope and Notecard Set finish the body of the ‘butterfly’. The small envelopes were very quick and easy to create and coordinate with the card very well.

Today’s creations were created with the dies supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.

There are 14 cutting dies included in the Sweetheart Envelope and Notecard Set.

The decorative rectangle dies were the perfect size to fit with the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Rectangles from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have backed the lacy dies with pearlescent vellum to create a softer look.

I have used very small velcro dots to close the envelopes.

Amazing Paper Grace Square Postage Squares – A Pink Christmas

I have seen many pink Christmas cards on Instagram this year and was inspired to create this gorgeous pink Christmas card using the new Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Squares from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken decorated with the very sweet little birds from the Amazing Paper Grace Sugarplum Tweets Etched Dies from the Christmas Flourish Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have die cut the largest square postage die from the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Squares from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken out of silver cardstock and added a white layer embossed with the Amazing Paper Grace Holly Flourish 2D Embossing Folder from the Christmas Flourish Collection by Becca Feeken. I then cut a frame using the 2nd largest postage edge die and straight edge die from silver cardstock and adhered to the front of the embossed layer as shown.

I have decorated the card with the birds from the Amazing Paper Grace Sugarplum Tweets Etched Dies from the Christmas Flourish Collection by Becca Feeken in pink tones.

Amazing Paper Grace Circle Postage Edges – Happy Birthday with Love

I love mixing and matching new and old Amazing Paper Grace dies to create classic and elegant cards. I especially love a white on white background creating texture and dimension with decorative dies and adding a pop of colour with hand crafted flowers and a pretty butterfly. Today I am sharing a shaped easel card featuring the new Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Circles from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken from the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace The Postage Edge Shapes Collection. I have paired the new Postage edge dies with the older but very beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Doily Round die and added some handcrafted frilly sweet peas for a very sweet birthday card for someone special.

Today’s creations were made with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

I have created a shaped easel card by die cutting the large postage edge circle die slightly over the edge of a folded card to create a hinge. I scored the top in half and then added another large postage edge circle. I have added the decorative die from the Amazing Paper Grace Doily Round die. I have layered smaller postage edge and plain dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Circles from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken before adding a decorative medallion from the Amazing Paper Grace Richelieu Squaare dies.

The sweet pea flowers have been made using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV flowers and Cinch
the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go III flowers dies and the leaves are from the Candlewick Rosebud die set.

The sweet butterfly is from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken.

The die cut sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace With Love Regalia Card Builder Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken and the foiled sentiment is from Spellbinders.

The butterfly has been made with vellum and I have added some Precious Platinum Nuvo Mousse to the edges and some glitter to the wings for some extra sparkle.

The sentiment has been die cut three times – twice with Snowdrift cardstock and one with iridescent cardstock. I have stacked the dies together with the iridescent cardstock at the top for extra depth and dimension.

For some extra sparkle I have added some fine crystal glitter to the flowers with clear gloss gel medium on a paintbrush. For a more realistic sweet pea look I have added tendrils to the flowers using some fine florist wire that I have wrapped around a paintbrush to create the curly ends.

The dies from the Circle Postage Edges, Round Doily, and Richelieu Square coordinated perfectly together to create beautiful layers.

Amazing Paper Grace | The Postage Edge Shapes Collection Intro Blog Hop

I love making handcrafted flowers and the new Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Ovals from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken provided a gorgeous base for creating frames for my flowers. Especially when combined with other Amazing Paper Grace collections such as the Petite Picot and Fluted Classic collections.

Today’s creations were made with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Projects for Today

Today I am using the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Ovals from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken

I have created two very different cards showing the versatility of these dies. For my Mother’s Day card I have created an outer frame using the largest postage oval from the Amazing Paper Grace Postage Edge Ovals from the Postage Edge Shapes Collection by Becca Feeken and created an inner frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Ovals Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken. Inside the frame I have added used a floral transfer to the centre of the plain oval and then crackled the image and distressed it lightly before adding the gold fluted frame with foam strips for more dimension. I have finished the card with handcrafted roses from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud die and a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken and a foiled sentiment from Spellbinders.

For my Thank You card I have gone for soft colours and flowers. I have created a base for the card using the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Rectangles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken, the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace You’re Amazing Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken. I have used the two smaller postage ovals and layered them differently for something different. I have decorated the card with flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies from Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Spring Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken. The sweet butterfly is from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken. To complete the card I have foiled the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Heartfelt Sentiments from the Sweet Cardlets collection by Becca Feeken.

I have added some gold to the edges of the flowers to create a more vintage look that ties in with the gold trims on the base card.

The butterfly is made out of vellum and I have coloured it with Spun Sugar and Pickled Raspberry inks. To finish the butterfly I have added some Nuvo Indian Gold Mousse to the edges to coordinate with the vintage look I was wanting to achieve.

I have added some glitter to the flowers using clear gloss gel medium with a paintbrush for a sparkly finish.
