Amazing Paper Grace July Die of the Month Blog Hop - Fanfare

Amazing Paper Grace July Die of the Month Blog Hop - Fanfare

Hello Gracelets!!  You are about to fall in love with the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for July 2020 – Fanfare.  This large filigree filled oval reminds us of an oval doily. The open aperture center works like a frame for images or even a shaker. Use only half to make it appear rounded or as a border or pocket. The fan motif can be cut, tucked in, or layered to create a number of embellishments in no time. Ahhhh, romance, can you ever get enough?

Thank you Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace for the dies to use today. 

Fanfare Details

Not only do you get the large romantic die that fits a 5x7” card or frame, you get a smaller fan motif die that will make corners or embellishments. Four flower dies allow you to create beautiful dimensional accents. What a great value, above and beyond the low kit price! But if you’re on the fence, use code JULY to get 10% off your first month, subscribe here! (New club subscriptions only, for a limited time.) Fanfare is a $45 value.

These are some ways to use Fanfare:

  1. As a Background
  2. As a Large Frame
  3. As a Shaker
  4. Make Corner Embellishments from the Fan motif
  5. Flowers!
  6. Cut in half the short way to make a topper
  7. Cut in half the long way to make a border or edge
  8. Fold in half to make a pocket

These make for a great little wedding gift-set. This large die makes is perfect for shaped cards. The sentiment is also from Spellbinders and it is hot foiled in gold.
The flowers are diet from heavy vellum and shaped then centered with pearls.
