Spellbinders Club Kits May 2020 Blog Hop: Amazing Paper Grace Fleur Di Lis Grandeur Fold Over with Simple Stories Vintage Garden District
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Spellbinders Club Kits May 2020 Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Desiree’s blog. Today I’m sharing a Simple Stories Vintage Garden District card made with the Amazing Paper Grace Fleur de Lis Grandeur Fold Over Dies. This elegant die set is the APG Club kit for May, and it is glorious!
Building the Card Layers
Build these card layers by following these simple steps:
- First, prepare a 6″ x 6″ card base from cream cardstock.
- Next, cover the card front with a 6″ x 6″ panel of gold foil paper.
- Now, place the Fleur de Lis Grandeur Frame over a 6″ x 6″ piece of teal cardstock from the Simple Stories Simple Basics cardstock pack.
- Then use washi tape to secure the (4) Fold Over inserts inside the frame.
- Run the die through your machine following manufacturer instructions, then adhere to the gold foil background.
- Next, cut a panel of designer paper from the collection with the Inner Square Outline Die. Mat this on a slightly larger panel of gold foil cardstock.
- Now place the Inner Square Pattern die on a piece of gold foil paper. Center the Inner Square Label die and secure with washi tape before running through your die cut machine.
- Place 1/8″ foam adhesive on the sides of the die cut and center over the patterned paper so that the pink flowers peek through.
- Now create a burlap string wreath and place over the center opening.
- Then select a teal butterfly from the Vintage Garden District papers. Place foam adhesive in the center of the butterfly, lift the wings and adhere in the center of the wreath.
- Next tie a large loopy bow with Iridescent ribbon and adhere in the right hand corner of the card.
- Now select flowers and foliage and adhere around the card as seen in the photo.
- Then locate “The Simple Life” banner. Gently round it against the side of a pencil. Adhere just the ends to the card base to create a dimensional banner in the lower left hand corner of the card.
- Finally, adhere cream pearls to finish the card front.
A Peek Inside
Finish the inside of your card with more designer papers . Then die cut 2 of the Fold Over Inserts from scraps of your gold cardstock. Adhere these to create a little treat pocket.
This is such a pretty way to present a little chocolate treat inside the card.
Tuck a little tea bag wallet and a journal card into the larger pocket. Write your personal greeting or add a photo to the journal card. Tuck a honey stick inside the pocket to go with the tea bag, if desired. I find these honey sticks at our local farmer’s market.
