Spellbinders February 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Spellbinders February 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Jennifer Snyder’s blog.  This month I am working with the Amazing Paper Grace Bella Diamante Club Kit.  There is just so much to love about this beautiful set of intricate dies.  As a cardmaker, I appreciate that it fits my “go to” 5″ x 7″ cards as well as smaller cards.  I’ve used it as to make a shaker card, and I also love it as an elegant lacy background on this pretty spring card.

Peach Roses, Butterflies and Lacy Layers

Here’s how this I used this versatile die in this card creation.

  • First,  die cut the scalloped frame from both pink foil and white cardstock.
  • Then layer the two frames together, staggering them slightly so that the pink foil created a sort of drop shadow effect.
  • Now,  die cut the inner diamond from both pink foil and white cardstock.
  • Next, adhere the pink foil over the white cardstock to create the opposite effect.  Back this layer with foam adhesive to pop it up above the background lace.
  • Then add butterflies, sentiment, flowers, buttons and ribbon to complete the card.

Carry the butterfly and roses theme to the inside of the card with patterned papers and ephemera bits.  Add pockets to hold a little notecard, tea bag, and gift card pocket.  So simple, but so effective!

Amazing Paper Grace Bella Diamante Butterfly Garden

Amazing Paper Grace Bella Diamante Butterfly Garden Shaker Card Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Amazing Paper Grace Bella Diamante Butterfly Garden Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  Have you seen the Amazing Paper Grace Bella Diamante Club Kit for February 2021?  Ooh la la!  This die speaks my creative language!  I could not wait to work it up into this Butterfly Garden Shaker Card!

This amazing die even comes with a Cinch and Go flower so that you can make matching flowers to go with your card or layout.  I love that!

How to make the Bella Diamante Shaker Frame

Since 5×7 cards are my “go to”, this large die makes me a very happy crafter!  Here’s how I used this die to make a fabulous shaker element.

  • First, die cut patterned paper with just the outer frame from the die set.
  • Next, use just the outer diamond frame to die cut the butterfly image from Kaisercraft’s Flower Shoppe paper collection. (Linked below).
  • Now layer the outer frame, inner scrollwork, and diamond frame over white cardstock and die cut.
  • Then repeat the above step with silver foil cardstock. Adhere the two die cuts together so that they are slightly offset.
  • Next, cut clear cardstock (acetate) with the diamond frame and adhere to the back of the frame.
  • Now add 3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips to the back of the diamond frame.
  • And here’s the fun part: place your sequin mix in the center of the butterfly image.  Then remove the paper liners from the foam strips and press the shaker top in place.
  • Now adhere your handmade flowers with a few paper flowers, some ribbon and pearls to finish the card front.

I even found a way to put this die to use on the inside of my card.

Die cut silver foil paper with the triangle frame and insert dies to create a lovely sentiment panel inside the card.
