Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Card with Authentique Flawless

Hello, Friends!  Have you seen the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Spellbinder’s Die of the Month yet?  Oooh la la!  This is one beautiful set of dies!  It pairs perfectly with the new Authentique Flawless paper collection.  This combination of pink and black makes me super happy!

Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Card: An Inlaid Mosaic Design

The star of the show is this gorgeous inlaid die cut from the Elegant Infinity Die.  Here’s how I made that happen:

  • First, die cut the medallion, the circle and the square frame from cream cardstock.
  • TIP: use a bit of washi tape to hold the dies in place once you’ve spaced them out on your cutting plate.  This keeps them from shifting and ensures a perfect cut.
  • Next, tap the die cuts with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with WOW Vintage Romance Embossing Powder.
  • Then mat the die cuts on a 4 3/8″ square of Flawless Three.
  • Mat this on both pink and black cardstock.  Place a Prima Crystal in the center of the medallion for a little extra sparkle.
Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Card: Fit for a Queen

This die is so regal, I just had to add a banner of these Flawless beauties to the card front.

Fuchsia ribbon and Iridescent Metallic String add wonderful contrast to the pretty pastel papers.

Create sweet floral clusters with the cinch and go flower dies that come with the collection.  Attach them at each end of the banner for the perfect finishing touch.

Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Card: A Peek Inside

Inside the card, I’ve created a fancy sentiment card using the corner dies.  This is so simple to do, but adds such a touch of elegance to a piece of plain cardstock.  Die cut the corners from cream cardstock.  Then adhere them to a panel of blush cardstock.  Then die cut a lacy pocket using the same dies and designer paper.

This is one of my “party in a box” cards with sweet treats tucked into a fancy pocket.  This one holds a book mark, a tea wallet, cookies, chocolate, honey stick and a sweet little vintage silver plate spoon.  This would make such a lovely sweet 16 birthday card!

A Closer Look

There are 9 separate dies that come with the set, so I can see myself using it in lots of different ways.  The little cinch and go flowers would also make wonderful roses or rosebuds.

    I agree you and Becca are the best! Cannot wait to get my die and now I know purple is my new favorite color . This is so beautiful Kathy. I love Becca’s creativity and the new doily dies make gorgeous cards too. I am anxious to see what you come up with using these dies…are you accepting the challenge?

    Hi, Kathy,
    You and Becca are my favorite paper crafters so I am always delighted when you collaborate. Your creations definitely add versatility to the use of Becca’s dies. I don’t think I would have thought to cut the corner die from different paper, so thank you for that inspiration!

    Wow, that is a groovy die! I’m gonna have to try embossing on card stock – never think to do that as I thought it would be too flimsy….but if it’s layered it would be well supported. You always teach me something 🙂 Will definitely try this one one of my cards this year.
