Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace July 2020 Club Kit Reveal: Good Day Card Folio

Hello, Friends!  It’s time to share my Spellbinder’s Amazing Paper Grace July 2020 Club Kit Reveal with you.  If you are a lover of Amazing Paper Grace intricate swirled dies, you are going to be thrilled with the kit this month!  I know I am!

The Fanfare Die Kit come with 8 die templates.  You’ll find the frame, insert, aperture, and detail dies along with 4 cinch and go petal layers.  These petite Cinch and Go dies make the sweetest little posies when cut from scraps of your designer paper!

Creating the Card Base

Pair the Fanfare Die Templates up with Gingham Gardens from My Mind’s Eye.  They play together beautifully!  Here’s how to build the layers of this 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ top told card.

  • First, cut 2 5 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ panels for the cardstock base.  Score the long side of one panel at 7 1/4″  and 7 3/4″.
  • Now fold along the score lines to create a card front with a 1/2″ spine.
  • Adhere the 3/4″ flap on this panel on the back side of the other 5  1/4″ x 8 1/2″ panel to create a top fold card base.
  • Score the inside of the card at 7 1/4″.  Then fold the flap to create a shallow pocket.
Creating the Card Layers

  • First, cut a 5″ x 7″ panel of the diagonal check paper on a 5 1/8″ x 7 1/8″ panel of cream cardstock.
  • Next, cut a 7″ x 3″ belly band from the pink and cream plaid paper.
  • Now machine stitch around the perimeter , if desired.
  • Mat a 4″ x 6″ panel of the floral design paper on a slightly larger cream mat.
  • Cut a banner flag with the die from the June 2020 Club Kit.  Cut in half and adhere behind the left hand side of the panel.
  • Then adhere the ephemera piece behind the lower right hand edge of the panel.
  • Machine stitch the layers together.
  • Now back this panel with dimensionals and adhere in the center of the larger panel.
The Fanfare Dies

  • Die cut the the Fanfare Frame, Insert and Aperture die from cream cardstock.  Place 1/8″ foam strips on the back side of the die.  Adhere in the center of the floral panel.
  • Now use the aperture die to cut the sentiment from a 3″ x 4″ journal card.  Back with 3 layers of dimensionals and adhere in the aperture of the Fanfare die.
  • Place dimensionals on the backs of the birds and prim house ephemera bits and adhere.
  • Glue the pink chipboard heart in the center of the sentiment panel.
Cinch and Go Flowers and Finishing Touches

Die cut the Cinch and Go flower layers from scraps of your patterned papers. Shape them slightly with a ball stylus.  Layer together, making sure you stagger the petal edges.  Insert pearl stamens in the flower centers, then arrange in a semi circle around the sentiment panel.  Tuck in some foliage, add a bow and some buttons to complete the card front.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card features a shallow pocket with a tea wallet, honey stick and a note card.  The top half of the card is a photo folio with a magnetic closure.

Die cut 2 of the detail templates to create the decoration for the front of the folio.

TIP: Make the details of these Fanfare dies pop by running them through your die cut machine a second time with the embossing mat.

The folio has room for several photos as well as a little tag/gift card pocket.

Create the tags from your scraps, then top with ribbon, mini keys and twine bows.

    Great project, Kathy. The Spellbinders dies and Mind’s Eye papers are a great match. Especially like the summery soft paper colors and the inside fold outs/pocket you’ve created with them. You’re right, those little flower dies create delightful little flower embellishments. They look great on the front of your folio. tfs-stay well. Hugs.

    What a joy to wake up each morning to a Kathy design and to top it off a Becca Feeken creation (that you employed to perfections)! I do look forward to it and my cuppa. A winning combo indeed.

    Don’t you just love that speckled egg color! It seems to morph into what ever you want it to be. You certainly turned those scraps of yours into something so beautiful and charming. Very frugal and so elegant the way you use color, scraps, embellishment and choices of paper. I know we keep saying it; but it is so true. You are the Queen of paper and color! Enjoy the day; I know I will and thank you for giving us this lovely design. I enjoyed the happiness of the experience of watching your video and hearing how you created this design. You not only create a project but foster happiness that we can use to help us face the day ahead as some of the news can be overwhelming. Thanks Kathy we appreciate your work and effort it takes!
