Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by the colours of my handcrafted irises. I have used the stunning Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Etched Dies by Becca Feeken to create a lovely decorative background for the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Etched Dies from the Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken. The hexagon panel fitted perfectly over the decorative background. To complete the card I have made a bouquet made using irises I created from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies – they were the perfect dies because of the three petals and irises have 6 petals. This card would be perfect for any celebratory occasion – birthday, milestone, wedding…
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
My Project Today
I have created a 5″ x 7″ card based and layered gold, pale blue and lilac cardstock to create the base to the decorative dies. I have then die cut the decorative die from the Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Grace die out of gold cardstock making sure that I also embossed this die and placed it on the front of the card. I then made the panel from the Amazing Paper Grace French Braid and Hexagon Panels Etched Dies using blue, purple and gold hexagons and added it to the front of the decorative die. The sentiment banner is from the Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Pierced Banners Etched Dies and I have added the sentiment die from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2020 – Elegant Infinity.
I have handcrafted the irises from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies using Rajni Chawla’s Flower Shaping Paper and adhered them to the side of the panel with leaves and accents from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulip Etched dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month August 2022 – Peekaboo Trellis Etched Dies. To finish the floral bouquet I have added some fillers made using yellow Prills and florist wire.
The sweet butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif Etched Dies completes the card.
The sentiment has been curved a little to fit the curved banner.
I have created a pretty petal pattern with the hexagon panel using a mix of the purple, blue and gold hexagons.
The leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Tulip Etched dies were perfect for the irises.
I have used a hot glue gun to add the Lemon Chiffon Prills to some florist wire to create the filler flowers.
I have made the butterfly out of vellum and gold cardstock to coordinate with the background colours. I have used Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac to colour the wings.
