I cannot get enough of the new Amazing Paper Grace Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Dies by Becca Feeken. The flowers are so beautiful and really easy to make and the background slimline dies are so versatile and make stunning backgrounds to the blossoms.
Projects for today’s post were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Projects for Today
Today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create a pretty spring card to cheer someone up. The background die is the Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken which has been trimmed to fit onto a 5″ x 7″ card. I love how I can make so many different size cards with this very pretty die. And I so love how I can mix and match different Amazing Paper Grace dies to enhance the base of the card. The Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken fits perfectly over the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Ovals Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken.
To finish I have added a sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Picture Perfect Window Scene Etched Dies from Make a Scene Collection by Becca Feeken and of course butterflies from my favourite Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.
To hide the joins on the background die I have used wide ivory ribbon.
I have stacked two layers of ivory cardstock with the gold cardstock to help create dimension and allow the sentiment to stand out.
Copic markers are perfect for colouring the stems and allow the flowers to pop.
I have coloured the stamens with a pale yellow ink and then I added pink iridescent gems to the centres of the flowers for a sparkly finish.
The background decorative dies have two layers – one ivory layer and a gold layer peeping out behind the dies.
Die cutting leaves and sepals from green cardstock makes flower making so quick and easy!
I have used foam squares to add dimension to the flowers to help them pop!
