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.

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.

Amazing Paper Grace November 2021 Die of the Month - Pop Up 3D Vignette Christmas Tree - detailed information at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=37623

Good morning sweet friends!  It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays!  In fact, day light savings time begins on November 7th and the early end of the day is what always clues me in that we are in a new season.  I’m back to reveal a new Die of the Month and as you might imagine, I wanted it to harken the coming holidays.  Welcome I hope you love the Amazing Paper Grace November 2021 Die of the Month – Pop Up 3D Vignette Christmas Tree designed for Spellbinders.  There’s enough detail in all of the dies to tinker to your hearts desire.

Inspiration for the Pop Up 3D Christmas Tree

For this month, I wanted an elegant, layered, dimensional Christmas Tree that was as at home on a card as it was on a 3D Showcase card that you mail flattened yet leave standing for display.  Mission accomplished.  I have to say that all of the details, the packages, the bows, the ornaments and such are really delightful.

What’s Inside the Pop Up 3D Vignette Christmas Tree

This month’s set comes with 21 dies that allow you to be as detailed as you care to be!  The nested trees can be cut with or without the dotted detail and they strategically stack so that you have successive layers rather than a flat tree.  The part that makes me smile is the detail with the packages – they make the base so adorable and at the same time give you extra elements to embellish a flat card.   The size of trees and embellishments make it possible to make both A7 and A2 cards with the set.

I also found that the trees were a perfect focal point for a slimline card.  Here I’ve created a simple vertical slimline that gives all the glory to the trees!

And here is the entire group!  By now you have no doubt started on your Christmas cards but don’t forget the special handful of cards that you send to those at the top of your list.  In my world, I make a hand full of showstoppers and it has now become a tradition to those who receive them {heart}.

I’ve been diligently working in my craft room this week getting it set up!  I’m usually pretty shy about these things but you never know – I just might show you some pictures of my progress.  To be honest, it’s therapy sorting things out and getting things back to normal.  For the past couple of years I have crafted on the floor, in the middle of the yard, on the kitchen counter and anywhere else I could find a space in my journey.  If I can do it, so can you!  Not having a “place” shouldn’t be the reason to not craft — I’ll share more thoughts on that soon!
