Today I get to share with you the December Amazing Paper Grace Die Kit! Spellbinder’s has recently added this subscription to their store, and these dies are beautiful and intricate!
This month’s kit creates a beautiful 6×6 gate-fold card. I cuts each piece for you to be able to then assemble. The kit also comes with detailed instructions and project inspiration, so that you can have fun creating your own work of art!
For my card, I used the dies along with some patterned papers from Canvas Corp Brands. These papers are designed by the artist, Aga Baraniak. She does amazing watercolor pieces that Canvas Corp then prints onto their papers. I thought the papers would make a lovely card with these dies, so I went for it!
I wanted a very light look to this card, So I die cut the base panels with the papers that had just the sketched, monochrome prints on it. Then, I die cut the intricate lattice pieces to layer over the panels out of plain white cardstock.
I then took a sheet of paper that had these gorgeous watercolor flowers on them, and fussy cut one bunch out. It fit beautifully on one side of the front panels, so I adhered it down with some foam adhesive. I made sure to have my piece of twine in place before adhering down my flower, so that it would help keep the tie exactly where it needed to be! Then, I just tied the card closed.
On the inside of my card, I adhered the pieces of paper that I had cut out from the front. This way, when the card is opened, you can see the same design that is on the front. I also think it would be so sweet and special to add a photo of a loved one right in the center of the oval frame, so that you not only have a personalized card, but a photo frame that the recipient can display!
Along with my gate-fold card, I decided to experiment and mix it up a bit by creating a holiday easel card! I simply used the front card panel die on a 6×6 card, but instead of cutting out all the other pieces that you would to create a gate-fold card, I just folded the middle score line and propped it up into an easel card.
I ink blended the white cardstock to give it a holiday red hue, layered on some of the other die pieces, and used some additional Spellbinder’s dies from past subscriptions to embellish with Christmas flowers. I then added a ribbon, some sequins, and the sentiment that was included in the November card kit.
Just another fun way you can switch up these dies and get creative!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed a look at these dies. If you are interested in this die subscription, please visit the AMAZING PAPER GRACE KIT in the Spellbinder’s store.
