Hello there Gracelets!    I’m the proud mama every month to a die of the month and this month it is a twist on a gatefold that is 10 shades of elegant.  If you’re not an over the top elegant crafter then you can take this to the more clean and simple look or if you like bling and intricacy then you have my permission to bling this up.  This month our Die of the Month is the Elegant Reveal Shutter Card.

This is the gatefold with the half-moon motif on each side of the opening.  I used the same half-moon motifs to decorate the bac and threaded my silk ribbon through the die cuts.  I loved being able to decorate the back of the card.  To me, it’s an easy way to finish or add a little bit of polish to the card.  By the way, this is is so easy, it almost constructs itself :-)

There are so many extra dies in this set that work to make “normal” cards but if you follow the directions to the YouTube below, you’ll be making an interactive card that is a beauty to behold.

As always, I’m a huge believer in “ensembles”.  These panels work up wonderfully into a box and by mirroring the panels, you have a sweet, elegant, balanced look.

Did someone say “normal card”?  Yes, I think I did!  If you are not the interactive type then do not be troubled – you can layer these elements together for a gorgeous card!   This was a month of fun for me and I got to hit each one of my comfort zones for a very rounded set of dies for the stash.  By the way, if the nested shape looks mildly familiar – you can see it HERE in glimmer – the dies in this die of the month will cut out this sweet border.

On another note, join the Creative Team and me for a blog hop.   On February 12th we will add a little bit more more inspiration to what I’ve shown above.

Thanks as always for your kind words.  I still adore designing dies!   It might be a bit of an addiction and I spend quite a bit of time doing it.  So I’m wildly curious – are you the interactive type or simply at home with an elegant die?  Which is your default – mostly cute or mostly elegant?  I’m at the designing table this week musing my next designs and would love your feedback :-)

    I mostly a traditional card maker but once in a while I like to try something interactive such a a Pop and Twist. I am definitely going to try this interactive one. Becca,I had a dream about you the other night that I stopped to see you and you had moved right around the corner from you house that got damaged in the hurricane. Very weird, but see I think of you even when I’m sleeping LOL!
    Can’t wait for this one to arrivre!!

    OH BECCA!!!! I LOVED your video! I DO LOVE “interactive” cards! They are like a challenge to me! LOL I have a book on them & try one out every so often. Don’t have the luxury of a die for those, but I LOVED watching you create this card today! You made it look SO EASY! ;)BUT, I also LOOOVE ELEGANT! If it can be elegant & interactive, I’m IN HEAVEN! These are USUALLY SPECIAL OCCASION CARDS for me! I also Love the MANY WAYS we can use your dies, the versatility of them! LOVE that the glimmer dies work with this set too! The more that coordinates, the better is my view! I SO look forward to seeing what everyone else has created with this die too! Till tomorrow!!!!!!!!! HUGS! ;)<3ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca you out did yourself again this die is gorgeous as always. Love how you used the die to create beautiful cards and projectsReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanFebruary 5, 2020 - 11:59 am

    Oh, goody, goody, Becca!
    When you demonstrated how your interactive card works, I was bouncing up and down in my chair with excitement. To use your word, I’m sooooo TICKLED!!! The most used dies in my box are your Curvy Labels and the nested dies here remind me of them. Since I discovered interactive cards several years ago, they are my first choice. I like making people feel special and they do just that. Since I’m a musician, also, if your muse wants to sing you, you’d be playing my tune! But honestly, you could never create something I don’t love, but interactive and elegant will grab me every time.
    Love & blessings,
    SandyReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,

    I have to say that I am definitely at home with an elegant die and find it a challenge to see how many different ways it can be used. Your “ensembles” are always a favorite part of your release and the box in this release is simply gorgeous, I can’t wait to try that one. Whatever you come up with is always amazing and ALWAYS exudes elegance and grace. There is no one that is close to you in those categories. There are two designers that I follow religiously and you are one of those two. Your videos are so easy to follow and inspiring. In case you can’t tell Becca, I love everything that you do.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Becca, every time I think you have created the ultimate in elegance….you top it again. I just can’t say enough about your designs and APG. I love this blog!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I haven’t commented in a while but am constantly checking in! Oh how I adore your dies!!! Wow what you have done here is nothing short of amazing!!! Can never get enough of your creations xReplyCancel

  • MaryH.February 5, 2020 - 3:58 pm

    You are the delight of my day today with your new creations and tutorials. Not only are your cards delightful, they are so fun to make. I have never had anything but oohs & aahs from recipients of cards made with your dies!

    I love the gatefold card sentiment you used and would appreciate knowing where to purchase it. (Checked QuietFire but did not find it.) I may have to have an intervention because I am addicted to creating mini albums using your Accordion Fold Spine die. Thanks for the inspiration today, Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Lori PodolskyFebruary 5, 2020 - 4:31 pm

    I absolutely love the intricacy, versatility and sheer beauty of your dies, Becca! You are amazing! xxReplyCancel

  • Debbie McKelveyFebruary 5, 2020 - 6:34 pm

    Very elegant die, so fun! I am always amazed at how many different ways you come up with for the same die. I love the interactive dies but tend to use the elegant and simple dies more often.ReplyCancel

  • BunnyFebruary 5, 2020 - 8:06 pm

    I really like elegant. I don’t own many but I do love the look.ReplyCancel

  • Crafty CruiserFebruary 6, 2020 - 4:17 am

    Absolutely gorgeous die set, yet again. The projects you have created are so beautiful. I’m a fan of elegant when the die does most of the work(!) but I do like the occasional interactive for special occasions.
