Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Victorian Splendor Die Lemoncraft Delicious Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Victorian Splendor Die of the Month

Hello, Friends!  I’m thrilled to be sharing this Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Victorian Splendor Slimline Die set with you today.  Slimline, you say?  But this is not a slimline card!  Correct you are, my friend.  To show the versatility of this gorgeous APG Die of the Month, I created a 5×7 top fold shaker card using bits and bobs of Lemoncraft Delicious papers.

My inspiration for this card design is an ornate Victorian style door with a leaded glass sidelight. The “sidelight” is easy to transform into a shaker element!  How fun is that?

You will have loads of fun trying different configuration with these dies.  You can see a few more ideas on the Spellbinders website.  And Becca has a tutorial on her blog as well.

Can you see the shaker mix sparkling back behind the intricate border design?  I topped the center of each medallion with itty bitty blossoms.   The foliage that comes with the blossoms looks beautiful tucked in with my pre-made roses and leaves.

I don’t know about you, but I am loving this delicate frame!  Slightly larger than an ATC card, it makes such a pretty base for the fussy cut image and flowers that serve as the focal for this card.

A Peek Inside

Inside, I’ve stamped a sentiment from the Essential Sentiments Clear Stamps Set.   The tea theme is carried to the inside of the card with fussy cut images of fancy fruit jams and silverware.  The little gift card holder tucks into the pocket.  And there’s room to write a note here, too.

I’m hoping I will have more time to play with this fabulous die soon!  It’s so beautiful, and really inspirational to work with.

    Kathy, this is such a gorgeous card. Becca just keeps coming up with the most beautiful die designs. And then of course you turn them into real magic! Love how you made the border a shaker cover. The theme of this card is so yummy with the jam and tea motifs. I can’t get enough of that paper collection. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    I LOVE this die set. Didn’t Becca hit it out of the park again. I wish I had a finger nail of talent you and she have! Dies are so versatile and I can see making box tops with this too! You have made this die set shine with your use in this card. I love the shaker element you employed and of course paper selection is spot on. I am loving the poke dot pots! This card makes me giddy with delight and inspiration. Have a nice creative happy day!

    Pretty card. Makes me hungry for toast and jam. I finally found the shaker feature. I kept expecting it to be near the dotted teapot. So I enlarged the photo. But it is at the bottom of the left side. Neat look…to make the cover appear as if it might open in the middle.

    LOVE this paper collection! The fruits and jams are so nice for a summer card. Very pretty card!

    You are the shaker queen! Lovely card Kathy and I have yet to make a slimline card, but yes they are getting so popular now, so I guess I should get on board. Have a lovely day my friend. It’s hot up here again today then it supposed to get back down to normal temps.

    Pretty, pretty, pretty, Kathy! BTW, I made my first shaker card recently and put tiny bits of sea glass in it along with sequins. My one problem was that some of the shaker elements kept sticking to the sides of the foam tape. What brand of foam tape do you use?

    Such a beautiful sweet card! Luv what you did with this new die …a shaker? …oh yes! That intricate work in this die reminds me of the old beautiful hot water registers in old Victorian houses! Luv it! Luv your beautiful card creation! Hugs, Suzy Q
