Stamperia Ceremony Love Card for the Spellbinders March 2020 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Elegant Infinity Spellbinders March 2020 Club Inspiration Blog Hop Stamperia Ceremony by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

I decided to go dreamy and romantic with the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Die of the Month Club.  The versatility of this die allowed me to use the square and circle dies to create a lovely shaker frame for this Stamperia Ceremony card folio.  Here’s how:

  • First, die cut the frame from both patterned paper and cream cardstock.
  •  Next,  adhere the die cut layers together to create a sturdy and functional shaker frame.
  • Now, adhere clear cardstock to the back of the die cut frame.  Use an adhesive that dries clear, and wipe off any smudges that might occur.  I use Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.
  • Next add  3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips to the back side.
  • Decide where you want to place your shaker frame.  Then place your sequin mix in the center of that area.
  • Finally, adhere the square frame as a diamond to create visual interest.
Finishing Details

I love the fact that this die comes with every element to perfectly finish the card design.

  • Die cut the corner pieces from cream cardstock and the sentiment from gold foil for extra elegance.
  • Next, cut patterned paper with the 2 floral from the collection to create perfectly coordinated flower clusters.

TIP: Cut flower layers from scraps of your patterned paper!

Finish things up by die cutting the sentiment from a bit of Gold Foil paper.

A Peek Inside

The Elegant Infinity Dies found a home on the inside of this card as well.  Die cut the square frame without the inner circle and medallion piece.  Then mat on soft pink cardstock to create an elegant note card.  Die cut the corner piece from cream and patterned paper.  Adhere them together, staggering the edges a bit to create a elegant corner pocket to hold the note card in place.

This vintage button from my stash adorns a little photo folio.

Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Treasures Dies Bella Luce Oval Stamperia Ceremony Wedding Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Hello, Friends!   This gorgeous wedding card folio is adorned with Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Treasures Dies and Stamperia Ceremony papers.  And, I have a surprise I’ve been dying to share with you!  For many years, I have followed the beautiful work of Becca Feeken/Amazing Paper Grace.   Becca’s beautiful bows inspired my love for ribbon.  So you can imagine my surprise and delight when she invited me to be her Guest Designer for the month of June!  Knock me over with a feather!  All this month I will be featuring designs made with Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Treasure Dies by Spellbinders.  What an honor!

Stamperia Ceremony Folio with Vintage Treasures Dies: Bella Luce Oval

This shabby chic wedding card folio features Spellbinders Bella Luce Oval Etched Dies and Infinity Link Border by Amazing Paper Grace.   The minute I took these dies out of the package, I knew I had to create a wedding themed card folio with them.  They are so incredibly elegant!

This 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ card folio features a 1″ spine, giving me lots of room for interactive features inside.  Here’s how I layered the front of this elegant folio.

  • First, cover your folio base with a 5 1/8″ x 7 1/8″ panel of ivory pearl cardstock.
  • Next, cut a 5″ x 7″ panel of designer paper from Stamperia’s Ceremony paper pad.  Center and adhere over the ivory panel.
  • Now, die cut a Bella Luce Oval from Whip Cream Cardstock.
  • Leave the die cut layers inside the die, Then run the die layers through a Spellbinder’s Platinum machine using the Embossing Plate and Embossing pad. Follow the directions in the manufacturer packaging for this step.  This will raise all the wonderful details in the die.
  • Lightly ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make those details pop!
  • Next, use the inner oval die to cut patterned paper to line the cardstock oval.
  • Stamp with a wedding sentiment stamp and heat emboss with clear powder.
  • Adhere in place, then cover with the filigree oval insert.
  • Adhere the outer filigree frame to your folio base.
  • Then back the inner oval with dimensionals and adhere.

Place dimensionals on the back of the diamond medallion and adhere to the right of the frame.  Top with a metal heart, as I did here, or add a pearl button to the center.

To add shabby chic details to these Little Birdie Flowers, dry brush them with ivory chalk paint. Distress metal corners with ivory chalk paint and gold glimmer mist.  Adhere in the corner. Tuck in a Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon Bow and vintage button, and the cover is complete.

A sweet little flip page and pocket detail wait for you inside this shabby chic folio.  Once again, I’ve used the diamond medallion from the Bella Luce Oval to create a shaped edge down the side of the flip page.  Each medallion is topped with a vintage button from my stash.  This makes me think of the buttons down the back of a gorgeous wedding gown.

And what’s in the pocket?  I’m so glad you asked!

A mini envelope filled with sweet wedding treasures and some journal cards fit perfectly inside the pocket.

Flip the page to reveal an elegant lace pocket made with the Infinity Linked Border.  I’ve tucked a little gift card holder inside.

The flap page on the right is the perfect spot to tuck hidden journaling or small photos.  The flaps have magnetic closures to hold everything in place.

Stamperia Ceremony Folio with Vintage Treasures Dies: Bella Luce Framed Photo Album

The Bella Luce Oval die is a delicate beauty, but a hard worker, too.  I’ve used it to frame the cover of the photo album attached to the top of the card.

But it also works as a frame for wedding, reception or bridal shower photos.  Just place a little adhesive on the outer edge of one side of the Bella Luce Oval Frame, and you can slip photos behind.  The inner oval makes a great journaling spot, or a place for small photos.  Once again, adhere just a little bit of one edge, and you can slip a photo behind the oval.
