Petite Picot Congratulations

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.

I love layering beautiful Amazing Paper Grace dies using white cardstock and here I have used three different die sets to create a stunning base for gorgeous handcrafted flowers.

For this card I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Circles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken as a base and added the Amazing Paper Grace Nestabilities Doily Round Etched Dies Candlewick Classics Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Circles Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken.

As I have said before my favourite flowers are roses and this time I have made roses using the Amazing Paper Grace Shapeabilities Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken. There are instructions on how I have made these flowers exclusively on the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group.

I have added some small filler flowers using the small flower dies from the Elegant Infinity – Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Club which is still available for sale until stocks last.

The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die Set Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken. I love this set as there is a sentiment for every occasion.

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

Happy Crafting
