Amazing Paper Grace – Happy Birthday

It has been a while since I made some beautiful flowers using Amazing Paper Grace flower dies and I was going through withdrawal symptoms! So today I have a beautiful birthday card full of pretty flowers to share with you. The birthday sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken was perfect to go with these flowers. This die set is from the Amazing Paper Grace The Right Words Collection which has a number of different sentiments for so many different occasions. The sentiment really makes a statement on this card and who wouldn’t love to receive this card!

Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

My Project for Today

For my card I have used another of my favourite Amazing Paper Grace dies – Amazing Paper Grace Annabel’s Trousseau Layering Frame Medium die on a 5″ x 7″ base card. I have stenciled a sun ray pattern with glitter paste for the centre of the decorative frame. There are three different flower dies in my floral spray – the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken, Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers III, and the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cottage Flowers dies. I have added a pretty butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. And the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasion Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken fits nicely within the beautiful decorative frame.

I have used a glitter paste for the stencil in the middle of the frame and this helps the sentiment to really stand out.

I have die cut three layers of the sentiment – two from white cardstock and one from gold cardstock. I then stacked the layers together before adhering them to the card. This helps the sentiment to really stand out.

I have added some yellow jewels to the centres of the pink flowers for a bit of sparkle.

Butterlies are the perfect accompaniment for a floral card.

I love using pastel colours for my flowers and try to have a range of different colours that coordinate for a harmonious finish.

I have sprinkled Crystal Ultrafine glitter to the flowers after painting the flowers with clear gloss gel medium.

These dies and plates are available from Spellbinders right now! Click here: The Right Words Collection.

A Purr-fect Happy Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

Every so often I get the chance to have a play with all the different products in my craftroom. I was asked to make a birthday card for someone that likes cats or dogs and also loves my floral cards. So I had a lot of fun!

I had just received some amazing flower shaping paper from Rajni Chawla who is the most amazing paper florist and I am so fortunate to be working along side of her in the Heartfelt Creations Design Team and also the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team. She has developed this special paper that is light and easy to shape but is also robust. I really loved using this paper as it is easy on my arthritic hands when I shape flowers by hand.

The products I have used in this card:

Heartfelt Creations – Classic Rose Die, Wild Aster Die, Clematis Flower Die, Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die, Lattice Flourish Gateway die

Heartfelt Creations Black cardstock, Luxe Silver Cardstock

Amazing Paper Grace – Candlewick Rosebud
