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.

Pretty in Silver and Pink

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a different sort of card to what I usually make.  I have used Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is a Glimmer Hot Foil plate  from Becca Feeken.  Hot foiling is fabulous for quick and easy sentiments and designs.  The flowers are from Tattered Lace and the background paper is from the local Warehouse Stationary.  The silver card has not photographed well but it does look a lot better in person.
