I often take my inspiration from nature and yesterday I went out walking with my cat and saw some beautiful white hellebores growing in a vacant lot. It is now autumn here in New Zealand and the colours are changing and these flowers really popped. I took lots of photos as you do and thought that I would have a go and making some with the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken. I was pleasantly surprised at how these have turned out.
Today’s project was created with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
For my leaves I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken and I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken on the bottoms of the flowers to allow them to sit easily when I glued them on to the base card.
I love layering dies from different Amazing Paper Grace collections to create my base cards. For this card I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Slimline Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Scalloped Symphony Notecard Etched Dies from Sweet Serenade Notecards Collection by Becca Feeken to create the base for the flowers. I have used a pretty floral embossing folder from Spellbinders to add some interest – Slimline Flora Embossing Folder from the Slimline Collection.
To complete my card I have used the sentiment die from the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken which fitted in well with the decorative circle die with the hearts in them. I finished with a little butterfly in the same colours as the card from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.
