We are in ‘summer time’ here in New Zealand but since the start of the new year we have had a lot of rain and little sunshine so I thought I would cheer myself up with a bright and summery card using the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Quilted Stained Glass Window Etched Dies from Home Sweet Quilt Collection by Becca Feeken from the The Home Sweet Quilt Collection. I used a cheerful yellow and white combination and decorated my card with handcrafted daisies and a sweet butterfly. This card certainly brightened my craft room!
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my project today I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base from Snowdrift cardstock. I have embossed a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ Chamomile cardstock using the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel Quilt Embossing Folder and layered it on top of the card. I have created a semi-circle using the quilt dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Quilted Stained Glass Window Etched Dies and inlaid with Beeswax and Chamomile to achieve a starburst effect. I have placed this semicircle on my card front and added a lace band to the left using the Amazing Paper Grace Romantic Slimline Borders Etched Dies for my flowers to lie on.
To complete my card I have handcrafted daisies from the Amazing Paper Grace Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V flowers and added them to the band on the left of the semi-circle. I added leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motifs Etched Dies and the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month – August 2022 Peekaboo Trellis from Rainforest and Peridot cardstock.
No floral card is complete without a butterfly and I have added a sweet butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters 5 x 7″ Card Base Etched Dies.
Finally I have added the sentiment dies from the mazing Paper Grace Log Cabin and Flower Mini Quilts Etched Dies in gold.
There is a tutorial in the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Community on how I have made these flowers here. If you are not a member feel free to ask to join and don’t forget to answer the questions.
I have used two different colours of yellow to represent the sun.
I have die cut two sentiments – one from Snowdrift and one from gold cardstock and stacked them together with the gold on top before adding them to the card front.
I have used the same colours from the card in the butterfly to help with tying the whole card together.
The green foliage helps the daisies really pop on the side of the card.
I have used two different sets of daisy flower dies to create depth and dimension for my florals.
