It’s that time again! The Creative Team and I want to leave you with a little bit of inspiration using the Amazing Paper Grace August Die of the Month – Elegant Knots that is made by Spellbinders. Hop around and visit each of the Creative Team for some lovely ideas. Elegant Knots is quite a unique die and everyone has used it in a different way. As you can see from my pictures, I love hitting the raised area with ink to give color to the die. I’ve tried gold, brown and some other colors. It’s such an easy technique and the results are stunning. Please join us as we bring you more inspiration.
My Project Today with Elegant Knots:
For my card today, I thought, what should I do with all the cast offs that I had making projects all week. I decided to add to my stash of small note cards. Today I made a small note card and matching envelope! For the card I simply trimmed off on each edge and glued it to the front. On my second round, I decided to wrap the motif around the card. I did the same with the envelope. This was a quick 5 minute treat and I think it makes for a unique and beautiful pairing.
Each Card is 4-3/4″ tall and 3-3/4″ wide.
I made the envelope with a 8″ x 8″ piece of paper, scoring from left to right at 3/4″ and 4-1/2″
Then I turned the paper 90 degrees clockwise and scored at 2″ and 7″
Next along the score lines, I cut off each corner (two little corners and 2 long corners)
Voila, an envelope. I simply sealed it shut closing the longest edge first.
