Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Collection

I guess you can say that I feel right at home going back to my roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Over time we’ve had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking.  Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, I’ve developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment – these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

I’m a card maker too, so for this collection, I decided on the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.

The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you’ve ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a “picot”.  It’s this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It’s just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with a classic picot flair.

Here is what the dies look like:

For my project today, I made a layered card by double stacking the die cuts.  This die has four inserts and I used all of the inserts on the card and removed the inserts to get my gold layer.  I used GLP-176 Borders and Sentiments for all the sentiments I’m showing today.

Designer Tip:  Highlight the focal point on your card by cutting up a die and using something pretty to draw the eye in to the place you want people to focus.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.

For my second card, instead of using the inlays to fill the Filigree Quartet, I reached for another die in my stash.  That’s the truly lovely thing about this die, you can reach for almost any die to fill it.  Simply use all four rims and cut out your own insets.  For these insets I used S4-993 Floral Tiara Topper.

    What a beautiful collection of dies! You’ve outdone yourself, Becca! Thank you for sharing your creative gift with us online. You asked about which shape is used most often. I tend to grab my circles or rectangles. I gravitate toward the standard A2 card size. I like circles because a circle is a circle. Not so with ovals. One can mix up circle sets easily.ReplyCancel

  • DianaDSeptember 19, 2020 - 10:32 am

    What a great addition to all the wonderful dies you create. It makes for endless creations. I appreciate that as I love making random cards for friends and neighbors. I get stuck sometimes with a “flavor” of the day die and this will give so many options.
    Pray the recent storm only skirted your area and left you intact. I know it was a long haul to get back home. Hugs, DianaReplyCancel

  • Crafty CruiserSeptember 19, 2020 - 10:39 am

    Absolutely fabulous projects from you and all your design team, Becca. As to your question on preferred shapes, I tend not to stick to any particular shape – I like them all, depending on what I want to achieve.
    What a shame your Giveaway is only available on Instagram. I don’t subscribe to any social media sites so that rules me out. My loss I’m sure but I’m sticking to my principles and never joining any!

    There’s not a dud among this collection; but there never is and that is why we all gush profusely when you have a new collection or APGDOM! We are never let down nor disappointed by the creativity of your team (and you) when it comes to showing us what can be done with these dies. So raise your glasses folks and celebrate another great success for Becca and chance for us to get creative too; it shouldn’t be hard with these babies….ReplyCancel

  • Sandra SmithSeptember 20, 2020 - 1:33 am

    This is a lovely collection! My favorite shape is an oval. It really an elongated circle and gives you more space to use. My next would be rectangles. It’s an elongated square and also provides more space to decorate. I admire your beautiful dies and the ideas you share with us.ReplyCancel
