I love playing with Amazing Paper Grace flower dies as there are so many options to choose from. The Layered Fleur Bouquet collection is such a fun collection as the flowers are so easy to make and you can choose so many different colour options. Today I have made a card using the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Daisies and coloured them in shades of pink and yellow to complement the ink blended background. The reverse gold hot foiled sentiment works well with the pink flowers and green leaves and to finish the card I have added some sweet butterflies.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my project today I have created a top folding 5″ x 7″ card. I have added a mat of gold cardstock and then ink blended a slightly smaller card with Distress Oxide inks – Spun Sugar, Saltwater Taffy, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry. I splattered some gold paint on it and than adhered it to the gold card front.
I die cut the all the layers of the Amazing Paper Grace Cascading Grace dies out of white cardstock and made sure that I also embossed the dies for an extra decorative finish. I layered all the dies over the pink base.
I die cut all the flowers and leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Daisies dies out of white cardstock and coloured the daisies in shades of pink with a touch of yellow, and the leaves in shades of green – inks listed below. I assembled the daisies and added some Go Man Go Prills to the centre of the open flowers for more dimension to the flowers. Once everything was dry I added the flowers and leaves to the front of the card leaving room for the sentiment.
I reverse hot foiled the sentiment using matte gold foil using the birthday sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Occasions Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and die cut it out with the coordinating die before adding it to the centre of the card with foam tape.
To finish the card I made two butterflies out of vellum using the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif dies. These butterflies were coloured with Distress Oxide inks – Squeezed Lemonade, Saltwater Taffy and Kitsch Flamingo and I have dabbed some gold glitter Lunar Paste for some glittery shine. The butterflies were added to the top right and the bottom left of the card.
