My card today was inspired by Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month – Peekaboo Trellis Panels. This time I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Leaf Mini Slimline Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to create an pretty framed aperture in the front of the card.
Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Project for Today
I have created a 5″ x 7″ base card and used the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Leaf Mini Slimline Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken to die cut the aperture. I then die cut another separate decorative leaf die out of gold cardstock and adhere it behind the white decorative die slightly offsetting it. I have cut a piece of acetate to fit behind these dies and made gold frames for both the front and the inside front of the card. The acetate helps to strengthen the card.
To finish my card I have made some lilies using the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimlines Collection by Becca Feeken and a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken finishes the card.
I have an exclusive step by step photo tutorial on how I have created the lilies for members of the Amazing Paper Grace – Creative Encouragement Group. Ask to join this wonderful community to view this tutorial and many other tutorials to inspire your creativity. (And don’t forget to answer the questions to get accepted.

I have used acetate behind the leafy die to help strengthen the card.
The gold decorative die just peeps out from behind the white leaves.
The gold frame front and back helps to finish the leafy die and anchor it into the card.
I have sponged the leaves with green ink for some depth and dimension.
