I really love it when I can make two different designs using one set of die cutting. In January I created a card using the Amazing Paper Grace Amazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilt Etch Dies in a gold and white combination. Using the left over pieces from that card I was able to make a totally different design using from the same colour combinations and similar flowers and butterflies. This time I have recessed the ‘quilted’ panel and added some pretty flowers and a butterfly to create a very elegant card.
You can see the other card here for a comparison.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have created a base card of 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ out of white cardstock. I then cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the base card and die cut the recess out using the outline die from the Amazing Paper Grace Amazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilt Etch Dies. I then embossed this using the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Embossing Folder and then adhering it to the front of the card using some foam tape. I added the quilted panel to the recess and decorated the card with flowers made using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies and Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies and a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection.
To complete the card I have added the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Amazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilt Etch Dies in gold to the bottom of the card.
I have coloured the vellum using Saltwater Taffy and Kitsch Flamingo inks for the butterfly before adding the gold accents.
I have stacked the sentiment dies for more depth and dimension.
I have added the embossed layer to the front of the card using foam tape to create the recess for the ‘quilted’ panel.
