My card today has been inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest and I immediately thought the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Emmeline Treillage die would make a beautiful background to some gorgeous handmade flowers using the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Dies and leaves and a butterfly from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif Dies. I have kept the colours very muted and limited to blue, green and white with a touch of lemon to keep with the sympathy theme of the card.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base card out of white cardstock. I cut a piece of pale blue cardstock 4 1/8″ x 4 3/8″ and adhered it to the inside back of the card. I then die cut the lacey front out using the beautiful ‘daisy chain’ die from the Amazing Paper Grace Emmeline Treillage die. I die cut another decorative die from a piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white cardtock and adhered it to the front of the card for more strength.
I die cut three decorative ovals from the Amazing Paper Grace Double Halo Oval dies and stacked the decorative frame together and adhered it to the front of the card. I then stamped the sentiment in black ink on one of the inner ovals and adhered it to the inside of the frame.
I die cut the leaves out of two different colour green cardstocks using the dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif Dies and adhered them to the left of the oval. I then made the dimensional flowers from flower shaping paper using the flower dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Blossoms Dies. The blue flowers where coloured with French Ultramarine ink and the smaller flowers were coloured with Citrus Burst inks. Once these were assembled I adhered them over the leaves.
I made the butterfly out of white, blue and black cardstocks using the butterfly dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Summer Label Motif Dies and adhered it to the right of the oval as shown.
To finish the card I have added some white pearls to the centres of the flowers and the daisies on the decorative background die.
