Hi sweet friends – what comes once a month and has me antsy all month long? Another Die of the Month, that’s what. This month I am sharing – a die called Lace Finery Slip In Card, it’s the Amazing Paper Grace January 2019 Die of the Month.
(Note: Thank you friends if you have answered my Questionnaire this week – the contact forms are rolling in and what you are telling me is music to my ears! If you have not visited my blog lately, I have a special request at the end of my post).
Inspiration for this Month’s Die
I kind of found myself looking for a different kind of challenge that would allow me to design many things with one die. Many of you had written asking me to release some premier dies on a slow schedule so they could be purchased one by one. Well, that’s the Die of the Month program. Do not worry if it is not in your budget – that happens. I still have other dies and collections – but this one allows you to get multifunctional dies that are classic and should be in style for some time to come. I get this question all the time, so let me say they become available one at a time and when they are sold – they are not reordered.
The January “Lace Finery” Die is one of my favorites. I can’t tell you how fun it was to put this together and dream of what you would do with it. Believe me, I don’t have to go far to get to second and third favorite, but this one — this one is quintessentially me! I wanted a die that you could cut apart and use the pieces — um, or not. If you want nothing more than to have four tuck in corners for a frame to put a pretty picture in or sentiment – then this is your die. If the princess look is right for the occasion then, this one can be configured that way. I even combined two motifs to make one delicate card front motif.
I made a video to show you how easy it is to use the “slip in” feature:
