For this month’s Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month, I’ve gone back to my elegant roots. I love the feminine and romantic lilt of a filigree die with lots of options – so that’s exactly what I designed for this month. Did you notice, I’m adding a new shape to the line-up and today – it’s an excellent addition to the stash! We have a little bit of inspiration for you today while we introduce the Amazing Paper Grace February 2021 Die of the Month – Bella Diamante.

I had to dig back in my mind to remember the initial inspiration, but in my collecting I came across a gold embossed book cover that had a set of scrolls in each corner. I loved that it had so much open space in the center and I could tick off about five uses of such a die. Bella Diamante is a 5 x 7 card front, with several element layers and rims to use as inlays. These multiple rims and elements will allow for both A2 and A7 cards. Elegance reigns supreme with the ability to create shaped cards, framed cards, or simply embellish with class.
There are 7 dies included in the Bella Diamante
My Project Today using Bella Diamante
As you know, I love making cards but I also love making little gifts that match in ensemble form to give away. That usually means making some kind of card and some kind of box. For today’s card, I wanted to cut the die so that I could size it squarely – it’s one of my favorite things to do. I simply snipped the diecut motif in half and overlapped it in the middle. The ribbon hides the join and no one is the wiser!
I did the same with the box. I love the corners and I simply cut them out separately and applied them to the box.
Designer Tip: Scope out how you can cut your dies to give you different elements to use. This gives you so many unexpected and lovely uses to look forward to!
