Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Birthday Card

Kia ora koutou

I love lacy dies and these Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Dies are just stunning to add some pretty edges and decorative backgrounds to add some flowers and a butterfly. These border dies can be used in so many ways and today I have done a 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card. I had some flowers left over from a previous project so this card was so quick and easy to put together. You can see the other card card here and on that post there is a link to a video tutorial on how I have made these flowers on YouTube.

Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.

My Project

To make my card I have created a top folding 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base card out of white cardstock. I then cut a piece of white cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″ and scored at 1/8″ intervals down the long side of the card and then adhered it to the front of the card.

I cut the following pieces of card:

Blue card – 4 1/2″ x 4″

White card – 3″ x 4″

Pink card – 2″ x 4″

I die cut each end of the blue card with the ‘broderie anglais’ edge and stitch edge dies, the white card with the scallop and stitched dies and the pink card with the lacy decorative edge dies. I then layered the pink strip to the white strip to the blue strip and adhered them to the front of the embossed layer on the front of the card.

I cut a strip of white card 7/8″ x 4″ and embossed a line at 1/8″ along each long side to add some interest to this panel. I then stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Lyrical Layers Floral Stamp Set in Jet Black ink to the right side of the strip. This was then added to the centre of the pink lacy edged strip.

The flowers were made using the Amazing Paper Grace Primrose Heart Facade Dies. I have ink blended pink and yellow inks on white cardstock before die cutting the flowers out and assembling them. I have also used the same flowers on another card that you can see here. The small sprays are from the Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month Flourished Fleurit Dies and have been die cut out of yellow and green cardstock. I added some gold pearls to the centres of the open flowers.

To finish the card I added a blue, white and gold butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters Dies.
