Petite Picot Just Say Hello

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we’ve had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment – these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you’ve ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a “picot”.  It’s this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It’s just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

For this card I have used the gorgeous square dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Squares Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken

The flowers are made using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V Etched Dies Vintage Treasures by Becca Feeken and I have an exclusive video tutorial on how to make these beautiful flowers that is available only on the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group.

These are the dies that I have used to create this card:

I have used the Sweet Treats paper from Dress My Craft for this card.

Happy Crafting

  1. Hi Patricia! These Cinch and Go V flowers are gorgeous! I used your tutorial to make these flowers for my latest APG weekly project, but I must say that mine did not turn out as beautiful as yours! I was running out of stamens though and so had to be frugal with them. 🙂

    1. Hi Tara – you did a fabulous job with your flowers and I did not notice you were being frugal with your stamens. Perhaps I will do my next tutorial on different flower centres! xx
