Today is Mother’s Day and today I want to acknowledge all those people who do not have a mother or maternal figure in their lives, the women who are unable to have children or those who have lost children and/or whose children are no longer in their lives for any reason. I am sending hugs to you all with this card made using the beautiful, elegant and timeless Amazing Paper Grace dies. I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Braided Grace Square dies as a base for stunning handcrafted lilies from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms and some sweet butterflies.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have created a base card of 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ out of white cardstock. I have layered the base with gold and ivory pearl cardstock with the top ivory layer being embossed with the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel 3D Embossing Folder. I have then die cut a frame out of the ivory pearl cardstock from the Amaz0–12-0)uyq. I die cut three decorative frames – two from ivory pearl cardstock and one from gold cardstock. I adhered them together with the gold layer slightly offset and added this to the plain frame and added it to the cardfront. I then adhered three inner pieces together and added them to the front as shown. I die cut two braided accents from pearl cardstock, adhered them together and then added them to the front. I die cut four sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace August 2022 Die of the Month – Peekaboo Trellis – three from ivory pearl cardstock and one from gold cardstock. I stacked these together with the gold on top and adhered them to the centre of the frame.
I die cut the leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers die, coloured and shaped them and added them to the top left and bottom right of the frame. I handcrafted the flowers using the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Dies and adhered them over the leaves. I added gold accents from the Amazing Paper Grace August 2022 Die of the Month – Peekaboo Trellis and to finish I added two vellum butterflies from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif Dies.
