The October 2021 Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is both beautiful and elegant.
Navy and Gold Sympathy Cards
Navy and Gold is such a classic color combination and I thought it would work really well for my pair of sympathy cards. I started by diecutting the border overlay from navy cardstock. I wanted a shaped card so I made a 5 x 7″ white cardbase and then I taped the top of the outline die just above the fold of the card so the fold would stay intact.
Next, using the the border die again, I die cut the filigree from Brush Gold Metallic Cardstock. I think the brush gold is very elegant and I like that it is not as shiny as mirror gold. I carefully saved the small die-cuts so that I could do a partial inlay and I saved the gold border overlay for card #2. I then die cut the middle oval filigree from navy and the oval outline from Brush Gold Metalic Cardstock.
Next, I assembled my card using liquid glue and added four inlay pieces to each corner. I gold embossed a sentiment and mounted it using foam tape.
For card #2 I used the gold die-cut filigree over a navy base with cream accents.
I also cut floral accent pieces from the dies included in this months kit. The two cream leafy branches in the bottom corners were the only components that aren’t included in the kit and they are from Amazing Grace’s Petite Floral Potpourri.
I am so pleased you stopped by today. If you have another moment, I’d love to hear which card you like best.
