Spellbinders | Amazing Paper Grace die kit of the Month July 2019

Hi friends, it’s first of the month and that means time for all new kits from Spellbinders Kit Clubs. Today we are starting with a card made using the Amazing Paper Grace card of the month kit for July 2019. It’s a beautiful set of dies that lets you create ornate door like structures with hinges. You can see here, how it has been used to make a box / no-flame-candle holders etc. But I decided to make a shaped card and use the hinges to connect the front and the back sides.

Die cutting:

  1. I cut out three panels – two white and one patterned paper panel with just the outside die to created the whole door like shape.
  2. For the center part, I cut out a blue panel only with the outline die of the inner panel.
  3. Two gold die cuts – one for the door outer and another for the inner part. My outer gold layer was a little bit short, so I created one ‘stand for the door’ by cutting out the legs and trimming out excess.

Assembling the center part of the door:

  1. I first made the center part by attaching gold filigree piece to the whole blue piece.
  2. I also tied a ribbon across the middle of it and made double knots.
  3. I foam mounted a sticker with a bird cage from Pebbles Inc. Jen Hadfield Heart of Home accent stickers.
  4. I also mounted a gold-white sticker that says ‘It’s Your Day’ – this one came from an older Spellbinders card kit.

Assembling the card:

  1. I added two white pieces together with the help of the hinges and trimmed the hinges on the other side. I let the hinge from the back panel, come over the front of the front panel.
  2. Next I added patterned paper door on top and the gold filigree for the door on top of that blue patterned paper door.
  3. Finally I added the center piece with foam tape and added just a few matching sequins around to complete this card.

I know this isn’t a typical style of cards that I make, but I love how it turned out.
