Amazing Paper Grace October Die of the Month Blog Hop – Flourished Fleurit

Elegance is our go-to style at Amazing Paper Grace.  We are always on the hunt for those elegant elements that you can add to a card that gives it just the right feel and appeal.  This month we’re head over heels for a year around a cascade of tendrils that can be snipped here and there to be used for top and bottom card decoration.  Say welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month – Flourished Fleurit.

The inspiration for Flourished Fleurit comes from looking through our stashes for just the right Rectangle or just the right Square.  Guess what – Flourished Fleurit can be both.  A snip here or a snip there puts give is just the right proportion to be a rectangle or a square.  We cleverly added in sprigs of flowers so that you can cover your transitions.  Hunting for elegant corners for a slimline – look no further.  A slip or two has you covered.

 Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create:

 1.  Snip between all four corners for slimline decoration
 2.  Snip between the connecting rod and cinch for a square
 3.  Cut as a rectangle for a beautiful A7 layout with many options.


**Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.**

There are 9 dies included in the Flourished Fleurit.

My Project Today using Flourished Fleurit.

For my shaped card I have kept to a simple white on white finish with just a hint of gold in the inner decorative die and the hot foiled sentiment. I finished with a pop of colour with the flowers and leaves.

The little basket was very quick and easy to create – just score a single die cut at the edges where the flourishes finish and fold up. Make a little box and add to the centre of the die, add flowers and finish with a ribbon boow. Just add chocolates and you have a beautiful gift basket.

Designer Tip: 

Trim the gold inner decorative die in the centre and then adhere to each end slightly overlapping the dies. This allows the gold edge to overlap more evenly.

My Project for Today

For my card today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Pinstripe Bracket Card Builder Glimmer Hot Foil Plates & Dies Set from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken simply decorated with some sweet holly and ivy embellishments from the Amazing Paper Grace Merry Filigree Card Builder Etched Dies from the Holiday Medley Collection by Becca Feeken. This card is really quick and easy to replicate in lots of different colour combinations and today I have used a non-traditional purple colour for something different.

Please comment: Which Holiday Medley set speaks to you?
