Kia ora Koutou
I have a wedding to go to coming up in about three weeks and I thought I would get in early and make a card for the bride and groom. (I am normally leaving everything to the last minute lol). I decided to go with a white and gold theme using the Amazing Paper Grace Clipped Nested Squares as a base for more handcrafted flowers. The sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Stamp set is just perfect for a wedding card (pun intended) and I have used Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud and Petite Floral Potpourri dies to created my flowers. I will make a box to coordinate with this card to make it extra special.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
To make my card I have created a top folding 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ base card out of white cardstock. I then added a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ gold card to the front of the card. I cut a piece of white cardstock 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and scored along all sides at 1/4″ and 3/8″ to create a frame. This was then added to the front of the gold cardstock. I then die cut two large clipped nested squares out of white cardstock and embossed them with the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Embossing Folder. I die cut two large gold frames using the two largest dies from the clipped nested Squares dies and then adhered them over the front of the card overlapping in the middle. I then used the inside nested square from one of the larger gold frames and added it to the centre of the overlapped clipped nested square panels. I die cut a smaller clipped square out of white cardstock and after stamping the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Stamp set with Jet Black ink in the centre, I adhered it to the front of the gold nested square. I die cut four frames using the next two size down clipped nested squares – three out of white cardstock and one from gold cardstock. These were stacked together and witht the gold die on top. This was then added to the front clipped square panel framing the sentiment.
I then die cut the corner dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Callista Rectangle Shadow Box Frame Dies out of gold cardstock and added them to the corners to finish the frame.
I made the roses from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud dies which were coloured with Lemon Whip and Ballet Slippers for a soft romantic look. I then added some Cosmic Shimmer Luna Paste – Moonlight Gold to the edges to give the roses an antique shabby chic feel. The large leaves were from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV dies and were die cut from green cardstock. The leaves were also given some shine and glitter using the Luna Paste and were added around the roses. The small yellow and pink flowers were made using the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Dies. I coloured the yellow flowers with Lemon Whip ink and the pink flowers with Raspberry Bliss ink. The lighter green leaves were also from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Dies set. These were added around the flowers and the nested square dies to create a pretty floral bouquet.
To finish my card I have made a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters dies out of vellum and gold cardstock. The vellum was coloured with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink and worked in perfectly with the antique-look roses.
