Spellbinders & Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month | February 2021

Hello, crafty friends!
I have a Card to share today featuring the Spellbinders + Amazing Paper Grace February 2021 Die of the Month Set. This month's "Bella Diamante" Set is perfect for making gorgeous layered cards, gift boxes, and more in no time! This die set features 7 dies.

I created a shaped landscape-oriented card using the Bella Diamante Set. This A7 sized medley of dies is full of rims and smaller A2 sized pieces so that you can create elegant and timeless projects.

To create my card, I first took a sheet of Buttercream Cardstock and die cut the outer frame die from the Bella Diamante Set using my Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I used the partial die-cutting technique here to create a hinged card base. If you don't know how to create one, you can check out Becca Feeken's tutorial HERE where she shows you how to create one.

I die cut the large decorative frame from Buttercream Cardstock and Gold Mirror Cardstock and slightly offset the two frames to create the illusion of depth without an excessive amount of bulk. I did the same for the diamond die, and the decorative diamond insert and the square dies to create the filigree centerpiece. I love how these pieces look all layered together. I adhered them down to my card base using White Liner tape. The sentiment in the centre of the square frame was stamped using Black Licorice Ink.

Becca's Bella Diamante Set also includes two flower dies, perfect for creating little embellishments. I die cut the flower dies from Cream Foamiran and coloured the centres using Rustic Rose and Pool Play inks. Then, I added some pearl pollens to the centres for interest. The leaves and foliage are from the Cinch and Go III Etched Dies and Life is a Party Card Kit. I cut them from White Cardstock and coloured them using Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, and Twisted Citron Distress inks. The tiny flowers were die cut using the Cinch and Go Flowers Etched Dies from Cream Foamiran. I embossed the petals and added a wire pollen in the centre for definition. I adhered everything to my card front using a hot glue gun. 

The Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month is available exclusively at Spellbinders Paper Arts during January 2021. You can get the Bella Diamante Set at the special Cub Kit price, along with other membership perks.
