Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Rose Garden Promise

Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for December 2020, Rose Garden Promise. 

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these beautiful dies to create with.

Becca shares her inspiration for this 5x7-inch frame-worthy card front that resembles the look of stained glass. She says, " 'God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December,' a quote by James M Barrie. It is precisely that quote that inspired me to think of roses at the end of the year. It has much to do with the promise of an approaching spring, buds bursting forward, and the gift of hope. As one who loves rituals, I finished off 2019 with a die template that featured roses and decided it was worthwhile to pay them homage at the end of 2020."

Isn't it only fitting to go forward with hope for the future and for new and worthwhile things that will break through. From the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, let this be a beautiful end to your year; we hope that through making, it brings with it the bonus of lovely memories.

There are four (4) dies included in the Rose Garden Promise

My Project Today using Rose Garden Promise

I prepared a card using colourful papers. Firstly, I die cut roses from white cardstock and glued everything on the paper. Then I die cut each petal separately using different colours. I did the same with leaves. Every element was embossed to make some dimension. 
It was quite time-consuming but worth it. 

The sentiment was foiled from Heart Melt Sentiments from Delicate Impressions Collection by Becca Feeken. I used a gold Roll Foil and Glimmer Hot Foil System. 

My second creation is a box decorated with gold Roses. I die cut from a gold mirror paper and cut off two corners with roses. On the box's sides, I glued decorative elements from the same set.
