Amazing Paper Grace December 2021 Die of the Month - Enchanted Pocket, Tag and Envelope - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37703
Good morning lovelies, it’s that time again!  Time for a new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month.  This one has been on my list for eons and I finally vetted it and worked it out.  Please say hello to the Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag, and Envelope for the Amazing Paper Grace December 2021 Die of the Month – it’s so many things wrapped up in one.  It’s a gift card holder, it’s a tag, it’s a pocket card and an enclosure card all rolled up into one sweet package.  This is one that will float up to the top of my tool box for a long time to come, because I’m always reaching for these items.

Inspiration for the Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope

That’s right, I pen cards and little notes all the time and was simply looking for something slightly elegant but not too over the top fancy to put them in.  Enter the Enchanted Pocket.  It is just the right size for a gift card, lol, because I give them allllllllll the time.  The top was decorative so I thought it would be amazing to use to use as a card focal point – so I created the tag.  Coincidentally enough, the tag folds in half and fits in the envelope for a decorative card.  Again mission accomplished – a multipurpose die that has a very specific function but is also quite pretty when used for decoration.

What’s Inside the Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag and Envelope

This month’s set comes with 14 dies.  The Main Pocket, three decorative inserts, three scoring bars, two flowers, two sprigs and a tag shape.

I couldn’t resist making this into a mini album.  All it took was 10 cuts of the tag die.  The were placed back to back to make finished surfaces for mini pictures.  I created my own accordion fold binding but you could also use my universal accordion fold spine die.

This was the main inspiration for this set – I love giving gift cards and wanted something that could go from plain for men to ultra feminine or women – and in only a couple of steps.  I actually got more than I bargained for – it also makes a sweet set of enclosure cards or mini note cards.

Last but certainly not least, the basket.  I took four enclosure cards, glued them together on the bottom and attached a handle.  It cannot get easier than that!!  It makes into a 4″ x 4″ basket which is just enough for favors and small things but not too large where you would have trouble filling it.

Coming Up

I couldn’t stop thinking of things to make with this set and our design team has already begun creating with it as well . . .  as you know, our Creative Team always loves to show you their take on the new Die of the Month.  We’ll be back on Saturday, December 4, 2021, for more inspiration with The Amazing Paper Grace December 2021 Die of the Month – Enchanting Pocket Card, Tag, and Envelope.

Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Collection - Fluted Classics - more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37671

In the past I have loved creating layering dies to go along with all the other romantic dies that go into making a card.  Those layering dies are so special because their edges peek out from underneath the layers where they flood the card with clean edges, structure, and class.  These layers define those above them and since they are made of classic shapes, they even layer together well.  Today we are introducing a new set of classics – I’m so tickled to introduce The Fluted Classics Collection.

Some links may be affiliate links, buying products through these links funds our creative team and generates a commission at no cost to you.

The Fluted Classics Inspiration

The crimped and pierced edges are reminiscent of a pie edge or the edge on a sealed bag but if you look closely they almost resemble a blanket stitch. Either way, it’s a delightful edge that draws your eye into the center of a card.  Nest the outer and inner rims with the insert to cut a tailored frame or for a beautiful background edge to any layering design. Keep it simple and you can cut a solid shape with just an outer rim. The Fluted Classics come in circle, square, oval, and rectangle shapes. We’ve also added a slimline version for those card makers who want to create an elegant and trendy silhouette.

My Project for Today

I’m using S4-1151 – Fluted Class Squares

Today I used the delicious texture of the dies to highlight a sentiment.  I took two of the Fluted Classic Squares and intertwined them for visual interest.  My sentiment fit inside quite nicely and then I embellished diagonal corners of the card to draw your eye in.  There are lots of slanted lines in my card today, that’s one of my favorite things to do with a square die.  In fact, setting one square horizontally and one square on point make for a fabulous frame.

Designers Tip:  Although you can cut without embossing, the embossing feature on this set of dies creates a deep impression that is stunning.

Slowly but surely I fit in a Christmas Card here and there.  I know the time to send them is drawing near but I tell you it’s as therapeutic for me to make them as it is to send them.  I won’t be sending out a big stack this year, but it won’t stop me from making more.   How are your plans coming together in this new normal?  I’m near family for the first time in more than 10 years and it’s my gift that has already been opened for the holidays.  I’m so grateful.  And, even though I experience struggles getting back to normal after all the recent events, I’m holding on to these good days.  I hope my post finds you grateful, healthy, and happy.

My Project Today using Pop Up 3D Vignette Christmas Tree

Today I wanted to make the “traditional” tree.  Green, red and gold are my go to colors when I venture out into the card-making season. This checks off all of the boxes.  To give it a little bit of pizzazz, I inserted the gold tree for some luminous contrast.

Designer Tip:  Emboss is your friend with this template.  Embossing the gifts with your die cut machine gives them a nice pop and embossing the tree gives it quite the polished look.
