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 created a base with the beautiful Bella Clair lace edge dies (now retired) and the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Diamonetta Background Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. I then layered the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Ovals Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken and added the ovals to the card with some fun foam. I have also added a gold accent to highlight the picot edged dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies from the Elegant Twist Collection by Becca Feeken.
I have made the flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken along with the leaves. The small filler flowers are from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity – APG Die of the Month Club which is still available for purchase.
The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken. This is such a sweet set to use..
These are the dies that I have used to create this card:
