Royal Flourish Inspiration



 Hello there! I'm excited to show you my new inspiration for Amazing Paper Grace.
The card's size is 5x7. 
I used The Contessa's Seal Panel Glimmer Hot Foil Plate from Royal Flourish Collection by Becca Feeken and Glimmer Hot Foil Roll –Gold to foil the design on my cream paper.




I used the 'Thinking of You' die cuts from  Layered Thinking of You Woodland Scene and slightly offset them.
To embellish my card I added some flowers.

Supplies:
S2-046 - Blooms Three Die

I hope you like my creation.

Have a wonderful day!!!

My Project Today:



Today I prepared a frame where you can put a little envelope with money - such a wedding gift.
I used a Frame with 1" Border Die from Shadowbox Collection to create a frame. By the way, I love this die. It is easy to use and frames come out beautiful. After cutting elements for my frame I embossed them.
Two opposite corners are decorated with a bigger die-cuts from a die of the DOM. 
My little envelope is 4"x3". I die cut four corners using the smaller one die to create a mini envelope.
Additionally, I decorated my card with handmade flowers with Cinch and Go V. I finished off my project by adding Elegant Occasion Sentiments Glorious Glimmer Plates

Introducing Royal Flourish | Card and Box Ensembles




Glimmeristas, I hope you are ready for more Glimmer Fun!!!  We have a new mini collection we are introducing today called Royal Flourish. With two card fronts as well as an oval border shape and square border shape - we'll have some stash-worthy things for you to look at. We thought it would be fun to make a card and a matching box using some of our favorite die sets and the new Royal Flourish Glimmer Plates.  It's easy to do and is a show stopper when we need to give a gift.

Inspiration for Royal Flourish

Have you ever noticed during period dramas like Game of Thrones that the Royalty each have their own insignia and way of writing? It's so cool and really fascinating that these things mattered to them.  There was actually a lot of thought and flair behind the written word.   It’s really no different today; we all have our own flourishes of style that we lay down to call things our own.  It was this spirit of honing a style that Becca said provided the inspiration for Royal Flourish.  Glimmer is such a lovely way to add rich detail and embellishment!

We've been especially loving using borders with glimmer.  For this collection, Becca created two border sets that you can cut with Hemstitch Squares and Hemstitch Ovals.   Card fronts that can take a sentiment seem to be the favorite, so happily there are two details plates that will make lovely frames to your favorite sentiments.

My Project For Today: 

I'm happy to introduce GLP-125 - Royal Flourish Glimmer by Becca Feeken Imperial Adorned Ovals Foil Plate.





I prepared a gift box for today. In contrast to my previous projects, this one is black.
Firstly, I made a frame from matt black paper. I used the S4-981 Shadowbox Frame with 1" Border from the Shadowbox Collection. To add a little subtlety, I used a gloss, black Glimmer Hot Foil only on the front of the frame.
Next, to create the cover of my gift box,  I took two pieces of thick chipboard and cut them to have a back and front side.
I covered the outside with black paper and the inside with gold matt.
I decorated the outside of the box with black oval elements with gold Glimmer Hot Foil. I used the plates that I'm introducing today. The sentiment is from Elegant Occasion Sentiment Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil.
To finish my project, I put a gold ribbon to complete the decoration of the box.

My second project: a card.




Availability:

These plates are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–>HERE
