Hi folks and Happy Sunday!
I thought I would follow on today from my Blog Post on Wednesday which focused on the beautiful Splendid Trilliant Etched Dies which are part of the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Twist Collection designed by Becca Feeken.
Well today I am concentrating on the beautiful Elegant Twist Squares. The elegant twist is the lovely braided edges of these dies which look fabulous when combined and layered with other dies. But, for today's card I chose to let the braided shares shine by simply using them on their own as three elegant frames on my slimline card base,
I teamed the pretty pink background papers with some mulberry paper roses. The white leaves are from the A2 Snip-it Grid and Calendar Creator which was the Amazing Paper Grace die of the month for June.
The foiled sentiment on my card is from the Borders and Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plates which are part of Elegant Twist collection.
Next up is a cute little chocolate treat box which I designed using the same papers and the Elegant Twist square frames. You will note that this time, I omitted the nested centre squares which featured in my slimline card. This accentuates how delicate and intricate the braided edges of the squares look when used on their own.
The box is very simple to make. You need a piece of 11x4-3/8" inch card stock scored on the long side at 2-5/8, 5-1/4, 7-7/8 and 10-1/2 inches. Score on the short side @ 2-5/8 inches. Cut away the small rectangle (shaded in the photo below) and cut along the short score lines.
I do hope you like today's projects and I hope you pop back again. I have some exciting new dies designed by Becca which I will be having a little play with and I will be sharing the results here, next week.
Bye for now and ............................"happy crafting everybody!"
