I have made a Shaped Card using this month's Pop Up 3D Vignette Telephone Die set. I had two different card ideas in my mind at first, but I decided to stick to one. Like I say every month, Becca is a GENIUS when it comes to designing dies and manages to bowl me always! If you're a die aficionado like me, you should definitely consider subscribing to the Amazing Paper Grace [APG] Monthly Club

I wanted to create this Vintage Telephone Card in pastel tones, so I worked with very light pinks for my entire card design. To start off, I die cut the base of the telephone from Baby Pink Cardstock. I die cut it twice, one for the front of the card and the other for the backside, so that it would give a more finished look. Next, I die cut it from a soft, baby pink patterned paper so that I could adhere it over my base die-cut.
Here's how the backside of the Card looks:

I adhered the layers and then assembled it together to create the basic framework for my card. Once that was done, I die cut the telephone handset from DCWV Pastels Solid Textured Cardstock and the coordinating handset caps for it from Whip Cream Cardstock and adhered it all down using the Journey Craft Glue. You may think that this die set is a tad bit complicated to play with, but once you start working with it, you will realize how simple and quick it is to put these 3D Telephone Sets together. They are really fun to make too and the process made me feel very therapeutic.

Next, I die cut the rotary dial for the telephone from the same DCWV Pastels Solid Textured Cardstock, while the numbers were die cut from Baby Pink Cardstock. I inlay the sentiment piece 'Call Me' to add some interest to my design and popped the numbers to my card using foam squares for dimension.

The telephone was looking good as is, but I decided to include a lil' floral spray to spruce things up! I die cut the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace July Die Set from White Cardstock and coloured them using two different ink colours from Fun Stampers Journey - Bubble Gum and Rustic Rose. Once they were coloured, I embossed the petals using Embossing Ball Tools and added white pollens to the centres to give them a more natural look. I also added some leaves, foliage, and rose buds to complete my floral spray.

Here's a look at the insides of the Card. I die cut a layer using the Pop Up 3D Vignette Telephone from Whip Cream Cardstock and adhered it down so that the recipient can write their message/thoughts. 

And here is my completed card. I think I like how this turned out. What do you think?
