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

Hello, crafty friends!
Hope you are doing well and staying safe!
I have a card to share today featuring the Spellbinders & Amazing Paper Grace April 2021 Die of the Month Set. This month's "Dahlia Dimensional Doily" Set is perfect for making gorgeous cards, gift boxes, gift bags, and more in no time! This die set features 11 dies.

I created a wedding card in pastel colours using the Dahlia Dimensional Doily Set. This die set is a mini collection of options, all together in one set. I have used the filigree panel die in the set along with the spiral flower dies for my card, but you can also use the Dahlia Doily die if you'd like.

I love the sweet, romantic rolled flower dies in this set and I was so happy to create them after a long time. The dies include a score line, so that you could bend the edges over easily while making them. You can control the overall size by how tightly you wind them, so you can make flowers in any size you'd like.

For my card, I started by die cutting Pink Sand Cardstock with the filigree panel die from the Dahlia Dimensional Doily. I die cut it twice, so as to create an A2-sized panel for my card front. I also die cut the die from Fun Foam, so that I could layer the two pieces, one on top of the other, for dimension and interest. 

Next, I die cut White Cardstock with the spiral flower dies from the set. I coloured the die cut pieces using watercolor half-pans for a soft, muted look. Then, to create the roses, I used the scoring tip from the Tool N' One to burnish the scored lines from the back of the die cut. Then, from the front, I bent back the scored edges. Next, I placed the thinnest end of the flower into my Quilled Creations Slotted Quilling Tool and turned it, so that the flower wrapped around the quilling tip with the rose edges bending outward. I added glue to the rounded base of the flower and my rose was ready! These are probably the easiest flowers you'll ever make, so if you've been thinking of trying your hands at flower making, this is just the perfect die set for you! 

The leaves and foliage were die cut from White Cardstock and Vellum using the Simply Layered Blooms Etched Dies. I coloured the die cuts with Electric Lime ink using a sponge dauber. Next, for my focal element, I die cut a circle out of Vellum using the Nestabilities Standard Circles LG Etched Dies and then die cut the doily lace insert from the Dahlia Dimensional Doily twice from White Cardstock. I also die cut a circle from Gold Mirror Cardstock and a scalloped circle from Pink Sand Cardstock. The sentiment was stamped using Black Licorice ink on a circle die cut. I adhered all of these together using a mix of foam adhesive and Craft Glue.

I adhered the roses and the foliage on my card front using Craft Glue. I mounted the panel to a mat layer of Gold Mirror Cardstock, followed by a panel of Pink Sand Cardstock. I then attached it to a top-folding white card base made from White Cardstock and my card was complete.

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