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 Frame Maker. We each picked a border from the Graceful Borders collection to work with and spun it into a mitered frame or mitered frame background for use on a card. The Graceful Frame Maker is a die that will cut four miters to create a framed card from borders, punched strips or tall dies - you can see a step by step tutorial -----> HERE and a video ----> HERE.
I'll tell you a little bit about my card and will share a link list below so that you can see the creations of each person on the Creative Team as well as learn how to win a free Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection Die.
On my card I wanted to created a beautiful background for my flower. I used a larger border from Graceful Damask Card Creator. The border worked perfect with the Graceful Frame Maker and beautifully filled the card. I had to try twice before I was happy with the result. It takes a bit of practice :) watching Becca Feeken's tutorials (linked above) helped me a lot. For my card I also used a sentiment from Giving Occasions Stamp and Die Set.
How to Win:
Hop around to each Creative Team Member and leave a comment on each blog, one lucky winner will win a die of their choice from the Amazing Paper Grace Venise Lace Collection. In making the rounds, a comment should be left on the July 11th Blog Post of each Creative Team member - in your comments let us know if there is a border or two that tickles your fancy.
When to Check Back:
We'll pick and post a winner on Saturday July 15. The winner will be posted on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog.
