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:
