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.

Very, very nice work. Thank you for inspiring me. God bless.
Beautiful. Love the layers, flowers and butterflies.
So many pieces on one card! I like those die cuts.
Wow wow wow! What a stunning card! I love your colors, layering..just everything! I have papillon dogs so I’m always drawn to butterflies. Such an inspiration. Thank you so much!
Beautiful layering and card. I love the card pocket and gift ideas. I have never received or seen a card with the inside so decorated and special. How thoughtful. Love your ideas. Thank you for sharing your unique, beautiful, thoughtful and kind stylings.
All of the elements combine so perfectly Kathy! The intricate, lacy die is contrasted with your rustic twine and delicate florals for a card that anyone would treasure.
I forgot to add that I love the way you tuck a tea bag, or bit of chocolate into some of your cards to turn it into a little gift!
Wow! Such a gorgeous layered card, even the inside is so complex! Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
Those cards are absolutely gorgeous!
I don’t even know where to begin. There is so much going om with your card and every bit of it amazing! TFS
Those intricate die cut layers on the front combined with the rustic touch of twine wreath make for a gorgeous beginning. And then, inside a surprise of fun color; we can always depend on you to make a card into an occasion! Lovely card, Kathy! I hope you got to celebrate on this special day! Hugs!
Beautiful! Love the how you made a wreath!
It’s so nice to see all the ways to use these beautiful dies

I like how the blue card is so frilly, yet natural. What a great look.
I love this card. I have just started to make this type of card they are so detailed and beautiful
Your card is simply beautiful. I love the beautifully decorated inside of the card. You didn’t leave much room to write so that is perfect for me.
WOW! what a gorgeous card. your color selection is stunning
In my book you have channeled the designer Becca Feeken and have captured the very essence of everything she designed. But by incorporating your own beautiful, personal interpretation in the project design is what makes the project even more memorable. Your design doesn’t stop at the card face but continues through out the card with little nooks, crannies and surprises for the viewer/recipient to discover. Every time one explores the card, something new not before discovered is unearthed. This is something you do so well and seems so easy but I am sure requires a lot of planning and forethought. However I do feel it is more an innate talent as opposed to applying a technique, which is what makes your designs so appealing and notable. I love your format of providing a written narrative, supply lists, video and loads of tips throughout the presentations of your project. This way no matter how one best absorbs knowledge and techniques you have it all at your finger tips!
Wow how elegant and creative! Just lovely 🙂
Wow, what a beautiful card. Your attention to detail is really something. Who would not love to receive this card? Just fabulous to see what you’ve done with Spellbinders products.
Wow Kathy! Your card is more of a piece of art than a card! How lucky the recipient will be. I love the pocket inside.
Gorgeous and really beautiful!
Thanks for the chance to win the prize!
This is gorgeous I love your design tyfs I need to become a spellbinders card kit member they have beautiful designs
I love your card. It never occurred to me to decorate the inside of my cards so elaborately. I am going to try this. Thanks for the inspiration!

Gorgeous details and embellishments! Love the colors and textures! Gorgeous card!

Kathy, what an elegant card! The Amazing Paper Grace dies are absolutely stunning! Oh how delicate and gorgeous those flowers are with that beautiful ribbon.

Thank you so much for sharing! Hugs!

The layering on your card front is so lovely, Kathy. The various elements you’ve used in combination with this Spellbinders die set come together so well. Especially like the burlap “wreath”–wonderful added texture and dimension. Using the die cut to hold the chocolate is another delightful way to add goodies. tfs on this blog hop! Stay well.
