Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Collection - Layered Fleur Bouquet - more details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37980
Hello there sweet friends, Happy Memorial Day – I celebrated by sending a Layered Fleur card to someone close to me.  As I move through the day, I want to start off the post in remembrance of some very dear to me.  My late husband and my father were both Veterans who died in service to their country.  I love that there is a day to remember them, and to be honest, as the widow of a veteran who died from his service injuries, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of them and what they gave.  We have lived the military life and though I personally haven’t been in the field of battle, I’m very aware that being in a military family is a secondary service.  We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Today, stand with me and say a prayer in remembrance.  We live in a great country that has been defended by good men and women who give in a gesture of sacrifice that many don’t understand.  It is a lifestyle they choose and we are all the better for it.  Much respect for those who serve and it’s my honor to pay tribute to those who have given their lives.

Layered Fleur – Memorial Day Card

I do send the occasional Memorial Day Card out and in preparation, I made a duplicate of this lilies card to send out.  (Yes, it also doubled as Easter).    I have to admit, that right now with all the fun stuff in my stash, I am a bit challenged to find something suitable for both Memorial Day and Sympathy.  Lol, that just goes to show how flexible this particular set can be.

I haven’t shared this on the blog yet, but recently I posted my newest collection called Layered Fleur Bouquet and was so tickled with the response.  These flowers are just like painting with numbers.  The dies are all numbered and are on the die in the order you need to stack them from left to right, to make the flower.  In addition, there are handy dandy guides that walk you through.  Scroll down to see some inspiration and all of the Layered Fleur Guides.

  • If you do like flat, then there is no burnishing.
  • If you do like solid cardstocks, then there is no coloring.
  • If you do like dimension, then burnish away.
  • If you do like to color, then touching the petals with a little ink is all that is needed.

Below I’m showing a recap of the entire collection and each of the layering guides.

On a personal note, please know that I have been busy lately however my heart and my passion are still wrapped around the giving of cards and handmade items.  Real life sometimes takes the foreground and hopefully soon I can take you down the path of reflecting upon the last year.

Today I am creating a bouquet in honor of my hubby that I described above.  As soon as I have it made, I’ll take it over to his gravesite and say a prayer.  Even though he was a serviceman and many other lovely things, he nurtured and lifted a loving wife and three amazing children that will never forget him.

    What a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to your husband and father…
    thank you for their service, and yours too.

    Would love to see some dogwood dies. They abound here in East Texas, so much so that we have a Dogwood Festival here in Palestine.

    Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca. I love your cards and I especially loved this one and the story abt your beloved husband and being a military family. I too come from a very long line of Veterans. My passion besides card making is Ancestry. My brother, dad, both grand fathers and theirs plus many uncles have served in every single war this country has been in since the Rev. War. I’m very proud of them and my heritage. It takes special people to serve and their families are equally as special. Our family, while we lived elsewhere, were other military families. I always thank them because they hold down the fort per se,for our Vets while at home or if they are on tours. A greatful thank you to your late husband and dad, and to you and your children. ?
    The card is a beautiful and a beautiful tribute.
    Blessings to you and yours sweet, Becca. God Bless you, our Vets, their families and this beautiful country we all call Home.?? ?? ??ReplyCancel

Good morning sweet friends!  Are you ever in for a treat with the Amazing Paper Grace May 2022 Die of the Month!  It’s an oven – inspired by sweet pictures of cool colored retro ovens and finally dreamed into a 3D Vignette called the What’s Bakin’ Oven!  My goodness, this is been in the making for almost a year, it was so hard to wait for release day, but it is here.  Today I’m showing the pink colorway and it has been made up in other colors as well.  You’ll just have to see the video where I show you how to attach a cardlet to the back so that you can communicate a sweet sentiment to the recipient.

The Inspiration for the 3D Vignette What’s Bakin’ Oven

This month’s set comes with 14 dies.  When the world is overflowing with so many handmade cards, I’m mindful of the cute presentation made by the 3D Vignettes.  They are easy to put together but can be represented as a flat card or as a 3D showpiece that people will not put away.  The What’s Bakin’ Oven folds flat!!  That allows you to hang a little cardlet off of the back and you can fill the interior with photographs or small cardlets.  If you give it in person or send it in a box, just imagine what could go inside – cookies, photographs of the new baby, recipes – you get my drift :-)

Please be sure to check out the video – in this tutorial I’ll show you how to incorporate a mini card, for your recipient, into the design :-)

I create a video for each Die of the Month for Spellbinders but don’t forget, I have my own Youtube Channel – Be sure to Subscribe HERE.

More Inspiration for the 3D Vignette What’s Bakin’ Oven

The allure to this type of card is that is draws the attention, people wonder how it’s put together and moreover, they wonder what’s inside or attached.

The blessing is that if you don’t want to go all out 3D, it’s the perfect charming ingredient for the front of your card.  In fact, the oven door opens and it would make a lovely money holder, with the bills tucked into the door.

How cute is it as a shaped card?  I think it’s a great option as a tag.

Yes, this is the backside of the watering can.  How cute is that?  On the backside, the recipient finds out the occasion for sending this creation.  And, it all folds flat!!

On all of my versions, I wanted a feminine edge to a retro stove so all throughout you can see I popped little flowers onto the design and they are right at home. How cute is that?!?    Keep an eye out for different versions – which is your favorite?
