Happy New Year!
The new Amazing Paper Grace The Home Sweet Quilt Collection is just stunning with so many different combinations to make gorgeous cards. Quilting is one of the few crafts I never really got into as I struggled with sewing large volumes of fabric. But with the Amazing Paper Grace The Home Sweet Quilt Collection it is so easy to create paper quilts with a lot less stress and mess!! Today I am using the French Braid dies from the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Panels Etched Dies to create a mini-slimline card.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card today I have used the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Panels Etched Diesto create a mini-slimline card. I have created a background of white, blue and silver layers to make the base for the paper ‘quilt’. I die cut three ‘quilts’ using the decorative die and the outline die – two from blue cardstock and one from silver cardstock. I then die cut the white background using the outer die from the set to which I added the silver outline die. I inlaid blue pieces to the outside of the quilt and silver squares down the centre of the ‘quilt’. I then added the blue outline die to the ‘quilt’ but upside down to create a plaid pattern.
To decorate the ‘quilt’ I have made some daisies using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V flower dies. The filler flowers have been made using the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Etched Dies and the leaves are from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Lilies Etched Dies.
To complete the card I have used the ‘Congrats’ die from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2020 Elegant Infinity and the butterfly is from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies.
I have added some glitter to the flowers using clear gloss gel medium and a paintbrush for some extra sparkle.
The sentiment has been die cut twice – one from silver cardstock and one from blue cardstock. These have been stacked together with the silver on top.
