Hi sweet friends – where did the last month go? I’m back with another die of the Month and looking forward to a busy February!! This month I am sharing – a die called Enchantment Tall Flip and Gatefold Card, it’s the Amazing Paper Grace February 2019 Die of the Month.
P.S. Let me share this before I forget — The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team and I will be introducing you to Shadowbox Vignettes in a Blog Hop on Monday, February 4th at 9:00am right here! Many of you have been asking when this collection is coming and I’ll share all the deets!
Inspiration for this Month’s Die
I love a die that can transform and do different things. In December I introduced a square gatefold card that could easily be parlayed into a gift basket for an ensemble look. For February, I’m introducing a tall 5 x 7 rendition of that kind of die. My initial thoughts were to make a Gatefold Card, use it for a Card Background, make a Basket, and cut out the pattern for candle wraps. I know there are many more ideas that but I was loving where it was all going!
I made a video to show you how easy it is to to make a basket:

For my first project I created an easy to make card using the complete die set (minus inner rims) for a background. With this die I can pick and omit which dies to use for a different look because there are 6 different inlays that can be used inside the card.
Here I have made an easy gatefold card by combining two panels.
This is my favorite project with the die – and that is to use the folded panel as basket handles. This makes the cutest basket ever – perfect for candies or pencils or even to deliver a batch of cookies!
