Hi there blog friends, I have another shaped card for you!! Purple is the order of the day :-) I love taking all the new filigree dies and layering them for a lacey look. I started out with Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles and cut so that I would have a hinge. For my back side I cut the same combination but left out the middle piece so that I would have a solid back. I did cut out an extra middle piece so that I would have something to layer with – I popped it up on two pieces of foam tape and stamped on it with Garden Gate Background Stamp. On top of that I layered a JustRite Papercrafts custom die – Vintage Labels Three that is stamped with a matching stamp from For All You Do Vintage Labels Three. I finished off by one more small little layer made with Spellbinders™ Standard Circles Small. I filled it with a sweet sentiment from Circle of Love.
Also, be sure to visit me tomorrow, March 1st, at noon (EST). I have a die template to show that you probably have not seen before ;-). It was not shown during the recent sneak peeks, so tomorrow I’m going to give you some ideas on how to use it; it’s truly a treasure. It’s being shown as a part of the Explore Beyond Sneak Peek and Giveaway. Yep, as a part of the Sneak Peek there is a giveaway for die templates, so you want to be sure to read the entire Sneak Peek post for the link to enter. In addition as a bonus, (not part of the Blog Frenzy) leave a comment on my blog March 1st post after 12 o’clock noon or my March 2nd post after 12 o’clock noon (EST) and I’ll pick a name to receive the Filigree Topped Box with Cards I showed recently as well as some extra stamp set goodies I have stashed away. I’ll pick a name on March 3rd.
Many of you had questions about how to make the filigree shaped card that I described as having a hinge, from the card I showed on this post http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/you-amaze-me/. Today I have a quick tutorial on how to! Even though I leave the insides of my cards blank, I try to finish off the insides so there is no tape showing or no raw ribbon edges – this video will walk you through that but you can save a step or two if the inside doesn’t matter to you. Here’s the tutorial:
|SUPPLIES I USED|
|Stamps: JustRite Papercrafts – For All You Do Vintage Labels Three, Circle of Love, Garden Gate Background Stamp
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White
Ink: Amuse – Amethyst, Heather, Grape
Accessories: JustRite Custom Die – Vintage Labels Three, Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles, Spellbinders™ Standard Circles Small, Becca’s Bow Maker
Oh, and more great news – JustRite has new shipping rates!! Check it out!! Thanks so much for stopping by today – if you’re mildly curious about what I’ll be showing, see you tomorrow!!!

I Love that card Becca! I ran out and purchased Timeless Rectangles just because of it! Absolutely gorgeous!
And such a great tutorial! I was wondering how you did it! So easy! Thank you!
Thanks for the tutorial! You did a good job explaining who you made the card. Your card is beautiful as always. You amaze me with your ideas.
Becca, I ‘m so glad you started doing videos again. I have missed them. Thanks so much for all your inspiration, I love your work!!!
Your card is sensational! I am madly in love with it. Also, your video is so clear and much more efficient than my now-ex-method of creating a hinge. Thank you for sharing your remarkable creativity and teaching us your tips. You truly put the “amazing” in Amazing Paper Grace.
Your work is always amazing, Becca. Love this gorgeous card.
So beautiful…thank for the tutorial!
THANK YOU BECCA!!!!!!!!!! WHAT AN INFORMATIVE VIDEO!!!!!!!!! :)

What a stunning card Becca. Thank you for the great tutorial.
Oh my goodness,these cards are INCREDIBLE!. These look like those beautiful laser cut cards. The colors . everything is breath taking. You really out did yourself with these. I love them. :)
Becca, Beautiful card and thanks so much for the wonderful tutorial on making the card base – you should be a movie director, girl!!
You are absolutly fantastic thank you so much .Melanie xx

Thanks so much for this tutorial Becca – such a treat for us now you’ve began again; really grateful for your sharing with us
Thanks so much for the tutorial on the hinge and on how to use the waxed paper because I have been wondering “ok how was that done”. I love your tutorials the are always so well presented and I am definitely a visual learner. TFS
Finishing touches make the difference. Beautiful card!
I really love your cards and I enjoy watching your videos. You come up with beautiful cards with great ideas.
Keep up the great work.
Scrappin’ Hugz :-)
As soon as I saw how you folded the edge of the cardstock in this marvelous tutorial the whole thing came together in my confused mind! On the card for Feb 28 did you lay the back side of the card flat and run the whole thing in your die machine so it would be solid? That card was a little confusing to picture (in this confused mind)! You have gotten so good at putting these combination of dies together to accomplish the right look! Thanks for all your work making the tutorial and answering our questions.
Good morning Becca: Thank you very very much for your tutorials. You are very inspiring, I love all your cards and boxes. Hugs from the Republic of Panama.
Thanks so much for the tutorial Becca! It helps a lot! Another question–I find that with the more intricate Spellbinders dies, I have to fun them through the machine several times. How many times do you have to run the die through the machine to cut through the second layer of the hinge?
Thanks for the tutorial. A beautiful card!
This is absolutely gorgeous & definitely “Pin-worthy”.
This is so beautiful. Thank you for the video to learn how. Blessing too you Becca.
Really beautiful. Love it.
Gorgeous Card! You amaze me with the beautiful cards that you make. I wish I was as imaginative. You are a great inspiration. You must enable a lot of people in purchasing these awesome dies. Thanks for all the work you put into your blog. I so enjoy seeing your creations.
Now I know I have to get this die. The card is fabulous!
Thanks for the video.
WOW!! Sooooooo pretty!!
This is just a note of thanks. I’ve been following you since 2/08 and need to let you know how you have inspired and reinvented my creative mind. Up to that time I was an average crafty person dabbing in an assortment of media but not seriously committed/in love with One media but stamping was something I used for class work and ‘primitive’ card making. How I found you was definitely God’s gift to me because from day 1 – card # 1 I am having a love affair with your blog. Your card layouts, designs, choice of colors & papers, ideas aside from cards and tutorials have been the finest lessons I needed and use daily. I LOVE your cards. I have built up 3 3″ binders filled with your daily offerings and use it like a bible/guidance/ inspirational ideas to follow. Makes me feel like a teenaged kid grasping at and in awe of your creative mind. I thank you for generously sharing your ideas. May you always be blessed.
So-o-o Wow, You have done it again…. I love this card and the colors, dies and inspiration. Just love all of your cards. Thank God for giving you such a talent to share with us. Loved the video, sure helps. Frances
Oh, I just love that cream with lavender!!!!! What a gorgeous card!! You are amazing, Becca.
WOW —so o o o o Beautiful. I need to try and make one very soon.
you’re AMAZING and God has given you a special Gift to share with
all of us. PTL
Lovely as usual!
Thank you Becca for a great tutorial, your cards are soooo beautiful, you give us all so many ideas, with those lovely die cuts, and colour combo’s, style’s and designs. LOVE IT. bless you Becca.
That filigree die is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing another lovely card Becca.
Gorgeous card, Becca. Love the colours!

Stunning card and fabulous tutorial, Becca! You create such beauty and then make it possible for the rest of us to duplicate…thank you for these gifts!
I just love it when you have tutorials. Thank you so much for your precious time that you spend for our benefit ~ we all do so much appreciate it!! I did both my sister’s and daughter’s birthday cards based on two I have seen on your blog. I’m Getting Better at my cardmaking next to you and your blog!!
Becca do you have any recollection of where you found the floral sheet you used on the gift cards. I have spent hours scouring the internet looking for them. I noticed several others had been looking as well. I ordered all the dies so when they come I will have fun recreating your filigree topped box. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent.
Thanks so much for the video! I love to watch things being done and it sure helps more than just pics.
Love, love, love that you are back with your tutorials……..you are such an inspiration.
I never thougth of layering dies like that. What a great idea with such dramatic results. I really look forward to your projects and videos. Thanks so much!
Vey well made tutorial and a beautiful card. Thanks!

Becca thank you so much. I too was wondering exactly how you did that. You have the most elegant cards evah!!
What a great idea to have that inch with which to attach the back piece. Save a LOT of paper and so easy to accomplish! Thank you for thinking OUTside the box and getting us to follow you in your ventures!
Love the card.

You are such an inspiration…& thoughtful of others. Thank you for the tutorials.
What cardstock did you use for the back layer (roses with scrollwork top & bottom) on your Waltzingmouse card?
Your card is So elegant and beautiful! I always love your projects, but this one done in shades of purple and lavender is really special
Irt is good to get to a computer again. I love this card. The colors & cut out are great. How do you come up with all these great cards.
Wow! Love that die! I think I ordered it today! Your tutorial was great, as always, too! Can’t wait to see what is in store for tomorrow! Hugs!
thanks for the video-that tip can be used for lots of things!
These are so lovely, Becca….I just swoon every time I see them. Great tip on the video…nicely done! Thank you!
Thank you so much for the video!! I never would have understood without it. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the tutorial. That certainly explains how you make the filigree card.
Becca, Thank you so very much for this tutorial. I read through explanations, but don’t always ‘see it’. I’m a visual learner. This made perfect sense, and I really appreciate this video tutorial. As you said, it can be used for other cards too. I realize it takes your time to prepare these, but oh, it is so enjoyed. Since you can’t come to my area and teach classes (or ?can you?!), your videos are the next best thing! Hope all is well in your world, and been loving the cards & posts. Just not had time to leave comments for a while. Quick look, read through, off I go. Again, many thanks and this was a beautiful card (as always of course!).
Becca, your card is delicious!! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us each day, so I am really looking forward to tomorrow’s reveal. I have ordered many of the new dies but they are taking FOREVER to get here. I try to be patient but it is not my strong suit. Love your work, you are such an inspiration
Another lovely card Becca and an easy tutorial.
This is Gorgeous!!! Your cards are so elegant. Love the bow too.
Thank you so much for the tutorial on the hinged card. Always wondered how it was done. Your cards are always beautiful and elegant. Will try this tonight. Hope that mine turns out as nice as yours.
Becca, as usual, you are brilliant in figuring out these clever methods and making such elegant, beautiful cards. Thanks so much for taking the time to share with us and teach us.
Your cards are always elegant & fabulous. I don’t win often, but if I do, I would treasure your cards forever.
Becca I just love what you do and thank you so much for this tutorial. this is one die I just have to get.
WAUW this is sooooo gorgeous Becca. I´m totally in love with card here, sooo stunning creation. Who wouldn´t just love to recieve such a beauty?
You are just sooo brilliant and talented Becca.
Have a wonderful week-end.
Oh how beautiful! Love the color. Thanks for sharing. All your cards are simply amazing.
Becca – your cards and talent are amazing! I am sat here in the UK on a cold wintry day in my lunch hour watching and reading your amazing work – you brighten up my day. (The wonders of technology!) I have been crafting all my life but I never cease to learn something from you. Bless you for sharing your wonderful work and talent. x
Becca this card is awesome! It’s just beautiful!!!! Thanks for the video!
What a gorgeous creation! I love seeing your work, it’s quite inspiring!
I loved your tutorial and the project is fantastic! I am going to try to make it with one of the spellbinders die that I already have, but I believe I am going to have to order this one!
Your card is so beautiful! I love the lacy frame/outline! I would love to be able to make cards like this.
Oh my goodness this card is beautiful. Now I can not wait to watch your tutorial. I’m sure I will learn something from you. Thanks!!
Your cards are so Beautiful !! Thanks so much for the video . I am truley inspired to try something new . Again , thank you.
My eyes is really big, like Candy for them
Your cards are so beautiful. You’re such a talented woman. Thanks for the tutorial on hinged cards. :)
love your cards!
Your work is so beautiful and I enjoy all of your posts When you use the
really delicate spellbinders dies do you have trouble getting them out of the die. I spent almost a half an hour yesterday getting one out. I ran
it through the cuttlebug both ways and several times and it cut fine but it
was just stuck to the die. Would appreciat any help you can give me.
Beautiful!!!!!! Thank you for sharing.
Have a wonderful day!
I love the look of this card and truly appreciate your tutorial for making a filagree card on the front and back. All your work is stunning and so inspirational. Thank you Becca!!!!
I enjoyed your video tutorial. Thank you for taking the time to make it!
I know I am a day late for the contest so I don’t expect to be entered, but I just wanted to mention how lovely the card is and to thank your for the tutorial on how to make the hinged filigree card. That was very helpful!
Wow! You never fail to astound me with your creations! Every day you seem to outdo yourself! This hinged card is so beautiful and thanks so much for the easy to follow tutorial. You are the queen of crafting!
I continue to be amazed by your imagination and vision when designing. You are inspiring.
This is so very beautiful. Thanks again for sharing.
I’ve been experimenting with making hinged cards and found it a bit complicated- thank you for simplifying the process tremendously. I love that you can keep creations within a 81/2 x 11 sheet as well. These filagree dies are gorgeous. Thanks for designing them- it will be so hard to choose.
I have never seen work that makes me feel so excited…. this is so elegant, so faminine, sooooooo creative….. its sort of soothing to my inner person, its what I want to do!!!! Thanks so much for sharing and for lighting my fire!!!
I loved the box made with Spellbinders Labels 28. However I don’t have this die so I improvised. The bottom was perfect but the lid did not fit. Can you give measurements for those of us that don’t have this particular die. All of your cards are luscious. Thanks for sharing.
Becca I loved your Decorative Border Folded Envelope. So I made one and it turned out great! I used my own creativity with the edges and embellishment. You are greatly appreciated for sharing your God given talents with us. Blessings. xoxo
Thank you so much for the video! You make amazing cards :-) I see I need some Spellbinders dies!! :-)
This is the absolutely most beautiful card that I’ve ever seen. I so wish I could go to class you teach! Pictures and videos are helpful, but I’m more hands on student. Gorgeous!!
I appreciate your taking the time to make the video, Becca! This beautiful card is so special!
Wow!! Love the card and video!! THANKS for sharing you are so AWESOME!! THANKS also for the chance to win!! Have a fabulous weekend!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love your site and now with these tutorials I can find even greater inspiration and ideas for using my Spellbinders more often. God bless you, Becca.
Truly fantastic! Just received these dies, I hope I can do one tenth of what you do!
Absolutely gorgeous! Love all the detail in this beautiful card!
Thanks Becca, This was really helpful.
Once again another beautiful project! The hinge work is perfect and so very simple. Thanks for the tutorial and sharing this lovely project.
I am sooo glad you gotten back to doing your great tutorials!! I’ve missed them.
Beautiful card, thanks for sharing how to make these Lovely cards!!
[…] do this on the front and the back, you can see my tutorial on Filigree Card Bases—–> HERE. I wanted a hint of color so I simply cut the Enchanted Labels Twenty Eight again and trimmed off […]
Good morning Becca: It’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted a comment – I check your site daily. I wish to thank you for sharing your beautiful creations. Your color and layering combinations are lovely works of art. thank you for your excellent, concise tutorials as well. Thank you!! Blessings.
