Hi friends, I have a card using Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace kit for June 2019. I combined the gorgeous, intricate dies from this month’s kit with Shapeabilities Cinch and Go V Etched Dies from Vintage Treasure collection also designed by Becca Feeken.
I started by die cutting the inner intricate designs using gold mirrored cardstock. On the edges I also used the edge dies. I set those aside and used on the edge dies with a deep purple cardstock to cut out a solid backing for the larger piece. I adhered the two larger pieces together and foam mounted the finished piece on one corner.
Then using MISTI, I stamped my sentiment ‘for you’ – this came from Simon Says Stamp Mandy’s Flowers stamp set. I used Altenew Deep Iris ink for this.
Next I made several flowers and leaves die cuts using the Cinch and Go V die set.
Tip 1: Instead of collecting all 5 petals from one cut, I combined several like-sized petals by cutting several of the flowers and made different sized flowers.
Tip 2: I don’t have golden brads – so I used a regular yellow colored ones, but before adding it to the flowers, I colored over their head with Deco Gold marker pen and let them dry completely (a few mins) before handling.
Then I decorated the larger corner with flowers and leaves – adhering each of these with glue dots.
For the other side, I placed my other, smaller corner gold die cut, but it overlapped part of my stamping and made it look weird, so I trimmed the outer most layer of the design with my Tim Holtz scissors. I had beautiful gold curves remaining, which I tucked under the purple on the opposite side.
Added a couple more flowers on this gold corner and called this card done. I thought of adding sequins etc, but decided against it because there was already too much going on on this card. :-)
