1. How do I find out what you used on a card?
I try to display a recipe (supply list) for most cards I make. I do try to put everything I know about the products in the recipe. The majority of products are purchased at local craft stores or are something I’m showing for a design team. Once you know the product name, Google is your friend.
2. How do you send your cards without maiming the bow?
Many times the card is an inclusion in a package. Otherwise, I simply flatten the bow and put it in an envelope. If I feel like I need to protect the embellishments or if they are bulky, then I send the card in a bubble wrap envelope. I have a video showing how I package bulky cards HERE.
3. What equipment do you use to photograph your cards?
Check out this detailed post HERE.
4. I can’t find a particular post, can you help me?
Believe me, the search button on my side bar is your best friend, lol!! That’s the only way I have of finding it too because I’m well over 700 posts on Amazing Paper Grace.
5. Where do you find envelopes for your large cards?
I make them. Most scoring tools have instructions to make envelopes of every size.
6. Can you please list the size of your cards?
I do provide the size of my cards on posts that feature a “How It’s Made” box. The sizes I lean towards are 6″ x 6″ or 5″ x 7″ Otherwise, the card is an odd size and is provided solely for the inspiration. I have found that odd sized cards generate more email questions than I can handle so I’ve found it’s far easier and less time consuming for me to let you use the inspiration in a way that benefits you best.
7. Can you tell me where to buy. . . ?
If it is a product for which I am on the design team, I alwayslink directly to the product. If you will click on the link it will tell you everything you need to know, including price. For other things, I provide all the information I know in my recipe. This will give you an excellent place to start googling to see where the product can be purchased. Many things come out of my stash and although I know the product name I don’t know where it came from.
8. Where did you get the beautiful crystal and mirrored stand that you use in photos of your card?
This is my lifesaver – it makes pictures sooooo easy. It’s actually a candle holder that I turn upside down. It was purchased at Michaels but was a seasonal item some time last year. Keep your eyes peel though, I’m sure there will be different ones that will function similarly as we pass through the seasons this year.
9. I’m having trouble getting paper out of my intricate Spellbinders die template – what should I do?
Rub wax paper over your die template and you’ll find that the paper releases quite easily. If it is an especially intricate die template, consider cutting a layer of wax paper (closest to the die) and your cardstock at the same time. The wax paper becomes a buffer and lets you get it and your cardstock out of the die easier.
