Thinking of You with APG Dies

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I thought I would share a card made with some gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace dies finished off with some handcrafted flowers.

To make this card I have created a base card of 5″ x 7″ and cut a piece of light blue card to adhere to the front leaving a small white border. I have die cut the lovely Doily Round die and embossed it through the die cutting machine before trimming in half and adhering to the top and bottom of the card. I have layered up the white decorative dies from the Richelieu Square die set onto a piece of light blue card and adhere to the front of the card with some foam tape.

To finish the card I have made some flowers using the Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose set from Soft floral Oriental Paper from Dress My Craft over some Leafy Accents.

The sentiment is from Altenew – Paint a Flower Poppy that I have heat embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock.

Pearls were added to the corners of the square.

I hope that I have inspired you to look at dies in different ways.

Happy Crafting

Using the inner decorative frame die from the HCD2-7307 Royal Elegance Frame Die, cut the opening out of the paper. Cut a piece of clear cardstock 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and adhere behind the paper. Adhere to the front of the card using two layers of heavy cardboard.
