Amazing Paper Grace Garden Shutters Collection – You’re Are In My Heart


Don’t you love interactive cards? Amazing Paper Grace has added the Garden Shutters Collection for another fun element of motion. It creates a beautiful card and with one pull of a tab, the shutters open to reveal a delightful surprise sentiment on the other side! There are two card base sizes, A2 and 5 x 7-inch, to choose from. Each card base set has all the elements you need to assemble and embellish a card! Which catches your eye? Also, as a bonus there is a beautiful decorative die set that works with shutter dies and a fabulous flower die set.

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

My Projects for Today

Today I am using 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 Amazing Paper Grace Eyelet Lace Frame Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. I have decorated the card with flowers and leaves made from the Amazing Paper Grace Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. There is a tutorial on how I have created these flowers at the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Group on Facebook.


To create the ethereal sparkling butterflies I have die cut the base butterfly out of clear acetate and then use holographic paper to create the wings.

With Valentine’s Day coming up I have added the sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace Primrose Heart Façade Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken. What a lovely card to give to someone very special.


Designers Tip:

Experiment with different colour cardstocks and inks to create beautiful flowers the easy way.

Amazing Paper Grace Garden Shutters Collection – Daisy Delight


Don’t you love interactive cards? Amazing Paper Grace has added the Garden Shutters Collection for another fun element of motion.

There are two card base sizes, A2 and 5 x 7-inch, to choose from. Each card base set has all the elements you need to assemble and embellish a card! Which catches your eye? 

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

My Project for Today

I have made a pretty interactive card using the new Amazing Paper Grace Daisy Delight Garden Shutters A2 Card Base Etched Dies from the Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

I have created a frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Fluted Classics Rectangles Etched Dies from the Fluted Classics Collection by Becca Feeken and the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Rectangles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken and then added the interactive mechanism to create the shutter card.

I really love the lattice inserts and thought they would be gorgeous as a back drop to handmade daisies using the dies that come with the set combined with Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go V flowers. Can you spot a sweet little bee from the Amazing Paper Grace Sweet Cardlets set? I really love making wings by hot foiling the wings on clear acetate and then die cutting them before adding them to the bee.

For a tutorial on how I have made these three dimensional flowers please go to the Amazing Paper Grace Encouragement Group.


Designers Tip:

In order to fit the birthday sentiments I angled the sentiments on the shutters and trimmed between ‘birth’ and ‘day’ in order to fit them on the shutters.

For my interactive card I have used a pretty decorative paper on the front and then added the flowers and leaves to create a spray of flowers across the card. The butterflies have gorgeous holographic wings to add some sparkle and shine to the card.


Designers Tip:

I found that it was better to have a heavier weight cardstock for the interactive base.
