Today i have my first post going up as one of the new 5 Designers for Becca Feeken and Amazing Paper Grace. It's a little surreal actually but I am over the moon excited to start this new journey with her. I so loved to get to design with her dies when i was with Spellbinders and now I get to use just her dies, how exciting is that? All of us will be sharing lots of projects each month using her newest dies and a fun blog hop each month to really show them off for you so be sure and check back so you don't miss anything fun. Doesn't that sound great!!
There are so many ways you can do this but i needed a special gift for a friend and thought that i would make a tiny little elegant gift card booklet to put in a some money for her graduation. I love that each of these dies have beautiful details that can help you create amazing gifts, cards and special things to remember those you love the most in your life.
So let's get started for a quick tutorial on how i made this...
First I cut my paper using only the larger outside die with only white card stock and then another time with the gold and white dotted paper to create the body of the book. I glued those together and scored it in the center to fold it. Then for the outside i cut the smaller die with one of the inserts and folded it and glued it to the outside of the book and let it dry like the closeup of the book below.
For the inside i cut a piece like the outside in white and folded it and glued it to the inside. Then i cut a gold pocket from the Vintage Elegance Filigree Pocket Etched Die set and attached that in the bottom center. For inside of the pocket i made a tiny tag that i created with the Swallowtail tag topper and a rectangle to fit inside the pocket. And there is just enough room to put a few dollars to give my friend for her graduation. She worked really hard and is so happy to reach this milestone!
Here you can see a closeup of the pocket and the design on it. I love that all of Becca's dies can mix with other ones. That to me is the fun part because you can create so many more projects that way.
And lastly to keep my little money card closed I cut and embossed the center tag from the Cascading Grace die set and glued one side to the back and the other i attached with tiny pieces of velcro. All the papers i got from Micheal's craft store so it's an easy project to make up for you to give.
Thank you so much and be sure and stop on over to the other DT members and see all the neat things they will be sharing all month with you... Have a very blessed day!
