Introducing Dimensional Doilies Blog Hop | Amazing Paper Grace


Things are not always what they appear!  When you look at this die set, you may be hard-pressed to see what it becomes but that's why we're here - bring on the inspiration!  We're so tickled to be introducing a new and unique take on doilies.  Please welcome the Dimensional Doilies Collection.  Hop through with all of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team to get a small taste of inspiration as well as see how each has used these new motifs!

Inspiration for Dimensional Doilies

Some of the first dies ever to hit the market were doilies.  They gave you a symmetrical base to put your card elements on and they simply frame a creation and draw your eye inward.  By now you probably have many flavors of doilies in your stash.  These doilies are different.   

With one pass of the die, three identical motifs are created.  These motifs have perforations and slits on each edge.  When the perforations are folded and the slits are intersected, it creates a round doily of 6 to nine pieces that has a secondary filigree layer.  The texture, dimension and pure femininity they add to a card front is gorgeous.

My Project For Today:



Today I am sharing a wedding day card that I decorated with a beautiful doily. I die cut ten elements and created two half rings. Each is made of five elements. Then I connected both half rings in an opposite direction creating a wave across my card (I used DL size card base). I connected them in a S shape using the same slots like for creating a circle doily.




I dressed up my card with my handmade flowers. I used Spellbinders S4-867 - Cinch and Go Flowers III. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders SDS-166 - All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die set.

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