Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace April 2020 Die of the Month Vignette Typewriter by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Spellbinders April 2020 Club Kits Blog Hop: APG 3D Vintage Vignette Typewriter Birthday Card

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Spellbinders April 2020 Club Kits Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from BIBI’S  blog.  If so , you are right on track.  You can find a complete blog hop list at the bottom of this post.    Today, I’m sharing another adorable Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Vignette Typewriter card.  If you missed the cute pink and black typewriter card that I shared earlier this month, you can find that HERE.

I love a snarky greeting on a  birthday card, don’t you?  So I paired this adorable 3D Vintage Vignette Typewriter Die up with Authentique Paper’s Party Paper Collection.  Insert a 3″ x 4″ sentiment card from the collection in the typewriter “roller”.  Then use the die from the kit to cut extra designer paper “pages”.  Place dimensionals between these layers for even more depth and dimension.  Finally, create a banner with stickers from the Party collection kit.

Die cut the pieces of the 3D Vintage Vignette Typewriter from foil cardstock and patterned papers as I did here.  To add extra depth and detail, run the die cuts through a second time using the embossing plate and mat.  Then  assemble the pieces with dimensionals between the layers. As a final touch, place a small dab of Ranger Black Enamel Dots on each key for extra shine and dimension.

APG 3D Vintage Vignette Typewriter Birthday Card: A Peek Inside

Turn the card into a sweet little gift by adding pockets on the inside.  First, tuck in a little chocolate and a blank sentiment card on the bottom.  Then create a gift card wallet and tuck into a second pocket on the top half of the card.

Such a great snarky sentiment!

    Am in love with your work and this adorable bright BLUE typewriter is no exception with this precious folio! Love all the layers that can be added with the dies that come along with this main die in this Spellbinders club kit! The add ons too!

    I’d feel at home with that typewriter. Much like
    the kind I learned to type on. Beautiful card.
    The inside is excellent also (especially that
    chocolate). thanks for sharing

  5. Scraporcraft

    Great share. I like all the additional details. Wonderful space for the gift share inside.

  6. Vicki Kroll

    Your beautiful card is a true work of art. So elaborate in details, lovely color, and a great vintage feel. I too love snarky sentiments. I loved the little card you placed inside and what it said. AMAZING!!

    Oh Kathy, I love everything vintage! This card with the typewriter is no exception. I love the color and that cute little typewritter and the fun sentiment!! Thank you sweet and dear Kathy for the inspiration!!! Take care and have an awesome weekend!!

  10. Shartl H.

    Lol, the fun sentiment inside makes this card do double duty. It’s gorgeous and humorous at the same time, my favorite combo. I love the colors you used and that typewriter die is a real stand out.

    1. kathycNC Post author

      Thanks, Shartl! This is one of my favorite paper collections. It’s as though it was made with this little typewriter in mind. Glad you are enjoying the hop!

  11. dorothyayotte

    Wow, what an amazing die! I love the card you made- just beautiful! Hope to explore your blog after this bloghop!

  12. Sara Barker

    Ah, Kathy! Today was my day to catch up on Kathy By Design posts in my inbox, and this just happened to be the first! Now it looks as if I will have a busy day (or five) to play along in this blog hop. No money for new crafty items, so it would be fun to win! How generous!

    As for your card, I just love the design and that fabulously put together typewriter! It must have taken ages to do all those keys! Having the snarky birthday sentiment rolling off the roller is so clever and the checked ribbon is the perfect compliment/embellishment as are the flowers. I particularly love the snarky sentiment card in the pocket within (and the chocolate). I hope you’re having a great day! Much love!

  13. Birgit Norton

    Hello Kathy, my old friend! This card is completely adorable!! So much candy for the eyes! It’s so nice to stop by and see you again. Hope you are well.

  14. karenladd

    Your cards are always just exquisite and the combination of those vintage papers with the typewriter die make for such a beautiful card. The front is already fabulous but the humorous sentiment and chocolate inside make this a gift in itself.


    My little typewriter arrived this week. Been cleaning and destashing my craft studio so haven’t had a chance to play!!

  16. Ddmac58

    This card is just awesome! I love this typewriter die, glad I subscribe to the club. I too like snarky birthday cards and this one is fabulous.

  17. MaryH

    First I want to express my appreciation for your excellent designs, enthusiastic approach to teaching us how to accomplish each project and for generously sharing your sources! And yes, snarky is so great! I was overjoyed to see the return of this die in todays project. It reminds me of my Aunt’s Royal typewriter she left me. Still works! Who doesn’t love a beautiful Mother’s Day card and such beautiful feminine touch you’ve added – very inspiring. Any Mom would smile ear–to–ear when she received this card!

  18. Gena L Krannig

    What a cute, fun card, Kathy! The 3-D effects with the sentiment cards in the roller is really cool!. The ribbons and flowers are such a great match and I really like the way you have layered the different papers. Your paper combinations always look so perfect! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

  19. Andre M.

    Lovely palette on this charming design, and even more delightful on the inside. Thanks for sharing this inspiration with these fun products.

  20. Eva N

    Very interesting vintage style cards. Love the extra dimension you added with different layers.

  21. Sam Burnett

    wow – love your typewriter card and how you added the pockets on the inside – clever!! TFS!

  22. sandy M

    Wow! Your card is so imaginative. The typewriter alone is remarkable but you added the pockets inside to really step it up. Great job.

  23. Karen Hale

    Kathy, your card is so AWESOME!! Just adore that typewriter. Such a creative way to show it off.

  24. Barbara Matthews

    Hi, I learned to type on a manual typewriter, oh my. Then came the electric typewriter and then computers. Do I miss the old manual? No, especially with a mistake, had to correct the original and all the carbon copies, ugh. This die is so cute though, i love it, and no mistakes typing, lol.

    1. kathycNC Post author

      Yup! Me, too, Barbara! Give me a keyboard any day! But I do think learning to type on a manual made you pay more attention to proper posture and hand position and all the rest. My husband picked up a manual recently and I tried it out. Hard work! And yes…this die is super cute!

    1. kathycNC Post author

      Wow, Deb! Thank you so much! I just really love to play with paper. I’m so glad you are finding inspiration here! Happy crafting!

  25. Dee Earnshaw

    LOVE the typewriter card both inside and out – thanks for sharing the eye candy:)

  26. Judy Parker

    I haven’t used my typewriter yet I so need to….you have used so many layers love it

  27. Susan Steele

    Adorable, beautiful card with all those “cute” sentiments!!! I just don’t know if I can live without that typewriter die! I used to have a real one just like it …so wish I’d of kept it!!! Luv theses Authentique papers! Thanks for sharing another great card design Kathy! Hugs, Suzy Q

    1. kathycNC Post author

      Thank you, Fiona! Yes, this die has a lot of little pieces. But it’s not that hard to put together once you get the hang of it!


    Gorgeous card and that typewriter sure brings back lots of memories using them at work – then came the computers – but I still have a soft spot for the typewriter!! Great work Kathy!!
