I have had the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2020 – Elegant Infinity dies for a while now and have only used the flower dies so far. So I thought I would get this set out and have a very overdue play with it. It really does live up to it’s name and it is perfect for wedding cards. I love how the layered dies give texture and drama to the card and complements the handcrafted flowers so well. And almost everything I need to make the card came from one die set!
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have created a top folding base card of 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ out of white cardstock. For the card front I have used the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2020 – Elegant Infinity dies. I have layered two pieces of pearl cardstock on top with an extra layer of a heavy weight cardstock between the two to provide more definition of the layers. I cut a piece of pearl cardstock 3 15/16″ and then die cut the square out and adhered this to the plain square. I then die cut 4 corner dies from the pearl cardstock and adhere them behind the square die and adhered this to the card front with two layers of heavy weight cardstock. I die cut a plain circle and two decorative circles from pearl cardstock. The two decorative circles were stacked together and then added to the plain circle before adding the the centre of the square dies.
I die cut three sentiments from the same die set out of – two from pearl cardstock and one from silver cardstock. I stacked the three sentiments together with the silver sentiment beneath the white sentiment and slight offset it and adhered this to the card centre.
To do the floral bouquet I used some ‘ferns’ that I had made previously using the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms Dies and laid then to the left of the card around the sentiment. I die cut the leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers die, coloured and shaped them, trimmed them and added them to the left of the sentiment. 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 had some apple blossom flowers left over that have been made using the larger flower die from the Amazing Paper Grace March 2020 Die of the Month – Elegant Infinity and they worked well with the lilies and the ferns. I then made some blue flowers using the smaller die from the same set and added then around the other flowers.
To finish I added a butterfly made from vellum and silver cardstock using the small butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutter Dies and some white pearls to enhance the decorative dies.
