The Introducing Flourished Fretwork Blog Hop

The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team and I are so thrilled to be able to show you the new dies that are a part of the  Flourished Fretwork Collection.  Hop through with all of the designers to see what they have made!

Inspiration for Flourished Fretwork 

Becca wanted to make the Flourished Fretwork dies to have a very wide appeal so the dies are created to do many things.  The dies were designed so that they could be layered on top of or behind so many of the dies you have in your stash.  They are also designed as the central point to an A7 card but are also small enough that they can make A2 cards as well.

This collection is full of rims and the ability to create shadow layers, each die gives you several options.  Whether you like an intricate layer or the solid layer, the choice is yours!

My Project For Today:

I'm tickled to introduce S4-1047 Richelieu Square Etched Dies Flourished Fretwork.
I created a Wedding card 6x6.

Firstly I die-cut the small square inlay from white paper and cut it in half. I adhered them on the opposite side of the card.
Next, I die-cut the large square from white cardstock. Again I used a small square die. I cut two pieces, creme and gold and adhered them on the top of the other slightly offset them.
I repeated this process one more time with a circle.
In the middle, I put a small tag with "It's Your Wedding" sentiment.
I decorated my card with a bow and flower

My second Project 

I created an exploding box with a cake inside. The sweets or little gift can be put inside the box instead of cake. On top of my handmade little cake, I put a rose made with Sweet Cottage Flowers.  On the box's lid is a flower as well made with the same die but I created it in a different way.

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