Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with some summer holiday inspiration created with the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for June. You all know I like to put my own spin on a design so I used this die set intended to be for creating calendars and made a fabulous background for my patriotic greeting card.
Because I knew I was going to want to layer quite a lot of patterned papers I cut the grid from crisp white cardstock to create a neutral place for your eye to land among these patterns. I also used a Stick-it adhesive on the back of the cardstock prior to cutting it to make it easier to adhere to my card.
The scale of the dot behind the die cut is very important to give the illusion of depth.
I’m using a dark navy solid cardstock to act as a border to separate the layers. There are also quite a few spacers between each section for depth and dimension.
I used the numbers included in the DOM to create a fun little date tag to add to my flower cluster.
I realllllly love the flowers dies included this month. Making flowers is one of my favorite crafting hobbies. How nice to be able to create a bouquet of blooms to coordinate perfectly with your projects! And if you make them yourself you can add as many as you like. And I like a lot!!!! Okay let’s talk about that fish tail banner. What a great layering element. You can add one or more to your cards and get so much detail. I layered 2 here cut from patterned paper that’s perfect for the summer holidays.
I hope this fun and festive patriotic greeting card inspired you to check out the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month.
