Stamperia Ceremony Love Card for the Spellbinders March 2020 Clubs Inspiration Blog Hop

Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Elegant Infinity Spellbinders March 2020 Club Inspiration Blog Hop Stamperia Ceremony by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

I decided to go dreamy and romantic with the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Infinity Die of the Month Club.  The versatility of this die allowed me to use the square and circle dies to create a lovely shaker frame for this Stamperia Ceremony card folio.  Here’s how:

  • First, die cut the frame from both patterned paper and cream cardstock.
  •  Next,  adhere the die cut layers together to create a sturdy and functional shaker frame.
  • Now, adhere clear cardstock to the back of the die cut frame.  Use an adhesive that dries clear, and wipe off any smudges that might occur.  I use Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.
  • Next add  3 layers of 1/8″ foam strips to the back side.
  • Decide where you want to place your shaker frame.  Then place your sequin mix in the center of that area.
  • Finally, adhere the square frame as a diamond to create visual interest.
Finishing Details

I love the fact that this die comes with every element to perfectly finish the card design.

  • Die cut the corner pieces from cream cardstock and the sentiment from gold foil for extra elegance.
  • Next, cut patterned paper with the 2 floral from the collection to create perfectly coordinated flower clusters.

TIP: Cut flower layers from scraps of your patterned paper!

Finish things up by die cutting the sentiment from a bit of Gold Foil paper.

A Peek Inside

The Elegant Infinity Dies found a home on the inside of this card as well.  Die cut the square frame without the inner circle and medallion piece.  Then mat on soft pink cardstock to create an elegant note card.  Die cut the corner piece from cream and patterned paper.  Adhere them together, staggering the edges a bit to create a elegant corner pocket to hold the note card in place.

This vintage button from my stash adorns a little photo folio.

    Wow so strikingly attractive and delightful! This aesthetically pleasing card, Kathy, is dazzling. Love your choice of soft, delicate colors and intricate compositions which enhances the romanticism of this captivating card – truly follows Becca’s dies elegant romantic timelessness. The placement of each element carried my eye from one side of the card to the other and made me excited to view the pictures of the inside of the card to see what was next. I LOVE your ability to use pattern–upon–pattern and yet maintain an uncluttered, charming look. And although silly of me, I never thought of using patterned paper to make flowers! If I can be so bold to say, I think you and Becca share the same crafter’s heart. Thanks for sharing.
