APG June 2019 Die of the Month – Enchanting Battenburg Corners

I’m always tickled to kick off each month with a new Die of the Month.  The die of the month for June is Enchanting Battenburg Corners – a die with a lot of extra use built in.  On this particular die, I’ve added flaps so that you can use it for a side pocket.  There are a set of rims that will produce a solid shadow.  Finally, there is a smaller die that can be inlaid or used to shape your top corner or bottom corner.

Behind the scenes, the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team are creating some gorgeous cards and creations to show you on June 16th.

Inspiration for Enchanting Battenburg

This set mimics the beauty of Battenburg Lace with the tiny bridges and swirls that keep the lace together.  It has been on my die bucket list for a while – I hope you like it!  Today in the video I’m sharing how to make a clamshell style box that will hold a set of cards – all made with this die set:

I reach for mini cards all the time.  It’s great to be able to put them together quickly and have them available for a note or a quick thank you.  The dies here do double duty for both the mini cards and for the clam shell box I created for them to go into.

I love that the smaller die makes a shaped corner, furthermore, it adds a nice decorative edge to the cards when I cut the panels on two corners.

Here I’ve used the dies to make a conventional card – I’ve shadowed them with gold for that extra punch.  I love how the edges of the corners peek out and it gives me an opportunity to build some flowers on top for interest.

    Absolutely stunning! I really envy those who are able to get the die of the month. Living in the UK makes it too expensive. C’est la vie.

    Love battenburg lace, Becca, so this is right up my alley. Mine usually don’t get here until about the 15th of the month but will be happy to do some cuts and see what i can come up with.
    Keep up the fabulous die of the months. One of the things I liked about this was that you didn’t have to order it if it was something that you didn’t care for. Ha ha! Have loved them all!!!!

  • FrancesJune 3, 2019 - 12:21 am

    Becca, you just never cease to amaze me. I just get blown away by the beauty of all of your cards and just your inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing your love and your talent with us.ReplyCancel

    I am a big fan of the way you do your instructional videos. I am not fond of a lot of unnecessary talk. Of course what is useful is fine but so many people spend 5 or 10 mins sometimes more chatting about anything that comes to mind that has nothing to do with the how to’s of what they are supposed to be showing. You do your videos just right in my opinion. Really a wonderful die and you always do a great job bringing all the dies to a beautiful use. God bless…Denice with a “c”ReplyCancel

    Becca, you have designed dies that make me look good to the person I gift a product made from your dies. I love this set of Battenburg Lace dies and look forward to using them when they get to me. I made the note cards and little box with last month’s “Die of the Month”. So very sweet. I made one for a friend’s birthday and even one for me. I even made little envelopes for my note cards. I am so impressed with your engineering mind and how it works. You keep me wanting more and more of your designs. Thanks Becca.ReplyCancel

  • Debbie McKelveyJune 4, 2019 - 1:08 am

    What gorgeous things you create. I can’t wait to get this die and play. Question, is the basket lavender on the outside and white on the inside or is that just my computer making it look different colors?ReplyCancel

  • DianneJune 4, 2019 - 10:26 am

    Love this card – it’s simple and elegant! You just keep topping yourself and your followers love it! the kardladyReplyCancel

    I find myself waiting for the beginning of each month with anticipation for your new die and for the wonderful creations you and your talented team make using these dies. Such creative minds and inspiration and joy all of you provide. Becca you have been instrumental in my creative journey with not only your talented designs but with your spirit and kindness. I want to concur about your training videos – easy to understand and follow. I love the cabinets (would love to see more inserts for different occasions), the frames are fabulous (so versatile which lets me make picture frames to books – perhaps a delicate stand to hold frame and cut outs to decorate sides) and those baskets & boxes to die for. Trying to figure out how I can use those corner dies to make fans – you and your team I am sure could do it in a snap i’m sure! You’ve opened a wonderful world for me for which I am truly grateful – Thank You!ReplyCancel

    I’m a new fan of APG. Becca, you have such a romantic style that just makes me weak in the knees… I adore everything you do! I am excited to begin the “Becca” phase of crafting career. My favorite part watching your tutorial is how you mash up different die sets and create something new and amazing! The multiple types of projects you put forth from cards, boxes, flowers, from a single die is brilliant and it adds value to the investment. I super appreciate the work you put in to keep the APG dies relevant and used throughout the crafting projects. I am so happy to have found your blog. ???ReplyCancel
