Congratulations, Amazing Paper Grace Cutting Dies

Hello and welcome back. 
Today I'm sharing a Congratulations themed shaped card created with some unusual papers (see description), and lovely versatile Amazing Paper Grace, 3D Vignette Mini Album Cutting Dies by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.

Here's the Card Recipe 
Stamps: None 
Paper: Wallpaper, Heavy Gold Wrapping Paper, Manila File Folders (for heavy weight & color) 
Ink: None 
Accessories: Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Cutting Dies, Pearl Brad, Gold adhesive gems, Gold Foil 
Techniques: Layering, Paper Piecing 

After cutting the shaped base, I added layers in reds, gold and cream. I also die-cut extras for the paper piecing of colored pieces back into the die-cut heart open areas. This helps to show-off the hearts better with added depth. Then I die-cut the sweet cottage flower and added a pearl brad to center and adhered to corner of shaped panel. The Congratulations is gold foiled. This was all so easy and quick. You can make these elegant shaped cards too with these dies that do most of the work for you. The gold sentiment is a foiled rub-on. For finishing touches I chose some gold adhesive gems and a pearl brad to hold the flower together.

Products Used: 

That's it! Super easy heh? 
It's so much fun to create with these fabulously versatile mini-album dies. 

Hope you will give them a try!

  15. In this manner my partner Wesley Virgin's tale begins with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL video.

    Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he found hidden, "self mind control" secrets that the government and others used to get anything they want.

    As it turns out, these are the exact same methods lots of famous people (notably those who "come out of nothing") and top business people used to become rich and famous.

    You probably know how you utilize only 10% of your brain.

    Mostly, that's because most of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe this expression has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about 7 years back, while riding a non-registered, trash bucket of a vehicle with a suspended driver's license and with $3.20 on his banking card.

    "I'm so fed up with living paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally succeed?"

    You've been a part of those those types of conversations, ain't it so?

    Your very own success story is waiting to be written. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.


  16. Me again!
