Today I am taking a fresh look at the Amazing Paper Grace Home Sweet Quilt collection by Becca Feeken. My card today was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and I thought that I would challenge myself further and make a shaker card using the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Panel Dies from the Home Sweet Quilt collection. I have added some pretty coloured flowers and butterflies from the Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Label Motif Collection by Becca Feeken.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have made a 5″ x 7″ side opening card base from heavy white cardstock. I cut a piece Hammermill cardstock 5″ x 7″ and adhered it to the front of the card. I then cut a piece of white cardstock 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and die cut the hexagon panel out on the left side using the hexagon panel die from the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Panel Dies. I die cut the outline of the hexagon panels out of white cardstock and adhered it over the die cut panel. I cut a piece of acetate 5 3/4″ x 3″ and adhered it behind the die cut panel on the back. I then added foam strips around the panel and over the rest of the front panel on the back and added some iridescent heart sequins behind the die cut panel and added it to the card front to create the shaker element. I added some of the pieces left over from die cutting the hexagon panel to the left side of the panel to create a base for the leaves and flowers to lie on.
I die cut the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Dies and the Spring Label Motifs Dies out of Hammermill cardstock and coloured the pink flowers with Light and Medium Carnation inks and the blue flowers using Crystal Violet and Alpine Aster inks. I die cut the leaves and stems out of two green coloured cardstock using the leaves and stems from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Dies, the Spring Label Motifs Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Dies. I then arrange the flowers and leaves over the left side of the card using liquid glue and foam squares.
I die cut the butterflies out of vellum using the butterfly dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Dies. I coloured the vellum wings with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade inks and assembled them with a black body. These were placed over the flowers.
Finally I die cut three ‘With Love’ sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace With Love Regalia Dies out of Hammermill cardstock and stacked them together before adhering to the bottom right of the shaker panel.
