Amazing Paper Grace Blog Hop with Borders



Good morning and thanks for joining us!  We have a blog hop going on today and the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team spent the week creating with the Graceful Borders collection.  Lots of us spun it into a mitered frame or mitered frame backgrounds for use on a card and a couple of us had other creative thoughts to use it.  These beautiful little borders are designed to use with a new product called the Graceful Frame maker.  It's super easy to use and just in case you haven't seen how to use The Graceful Frame Maker with the border dies you can see a step by step tutorial ----- HERE and a video --- HERE.  

And me-- well i went in a totally different direction with my borders.  I used to do alot of wedding cakes back in the day and my border die set "Graceful Scallops"  just screamed at me to make a mini wedding cake box.  I cut them into the paper, embossed them and also used all those cute little borders like piped wedding icing to decorate my cake.  It was so fun and you can take off the top layer and put in a gift card or some cash for the new bride and groom.  And of course you can make a matching card to got with it.



To make this project easier i used small chipboard circle boxes and cover them with mixed media paper.  This has a really nice weight and the die pieces really embossed well with it.  For each layer of my mini cake i added little details into the paper with the dies.  The sizes were perfect to use for those little bits of detail and would be so amazing to use with the frame maker die.  For the top i created some flowers using white paper, chalk ink and the "Cinch and Go 2 Flower Die set"  I just gently folded them and added the leaves and flowers between them to make a pretty arrangement on the cake.

And if you missed my other posts using the new borders dies be sure and hop on over to here and here to see more card ideas with these amazing and beautiful border dies by Becca Feeken.


I also used Graceful Eyelets on my cake as well....
