Amazing Paper Grace October Die of the Month Blog Hop

Have you ever needed to make a card and hunted through your stash and found that you could not find a sentiment with the right word?  Well, look no more!  It was out of that frustration that Becca created a sweet set that will accommodate that exact word you are looking for with One Kind Word Alphabet Collage.

Now you can headline with Sorry, Amazing, Silly, Fierce, Happy, Heaven, Gather, Home, Grow, Friend, Bestie and the list goes on and on.  No need to stick with one word, you can have two - U Rock, Adore U, My Love.

One of the things we share when we share a handmade card, is kindness.  What better way to share that kindness than to put the exact word you mean on the front of the card.  Nothing like getting right to the point! The Alphabet collage is a card in and of itself but the words you can make with the letters that fall out, are priceless.  You can use the 5 x 7 Sentiment Frame or go naked and simply make up your own sentiment.

This die is so universal.  With a whole alphabet, you can create any card.  The letters are so delicate and beautiful. In addition, we have little flowers to decorate our project.

It's World Card Making Day and the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team is celebrating with a Giveaway and inspiration for the new October Die of the Month - details at the bottom of my post.

My project today:

I couldn't decide what card to prepare for this blog. Firstly, I wanted to make a Christmas card, then a card with my wee granddaughter's photo. Finally, because it's getting colder and colder, I decided to give you a little sun :)
I found beautiful sunflower's pictures on the Internet. I recomposed them a little and mixed them together. I printed them on a cream paper. I decorated my card with flowers from Die of the Month. They are so sweet.
At the top, I added the name of my friend to make the card more personalised.

Supply List:

Stamps: none
Paper: coloured paper, M&C Boutique.
Ink: none
Accessories: October Die of the Month, S4-1015 Candlewick Rosebund, 3D tape, Pearls, Platinum Diecutting Machine.
