Introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Collection


Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we've had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment - these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Today you're in luck! Our Creative Team is sharing makes from the Picot Petite Collection.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.

The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you've ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a "picot".  It's this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It's just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

Each of our Creative Team members will show you their take on cards made with a classic picot flair.

My Projects For Today

First up is my card made using the Bed of Lace Etched Dies Amazing Paper Grace SKU S4-1072 by Spellbinders

Here is what the dies look like:  

My card is in landscape and is 5" x 7 inches".  

I used soft vanilla cardstock teamed with gold foil cardstock which I used to edge my card, and have also offset gold layers beneath the vanilla intricate die cutting.   I cut the beautiful Bed of Lace die directly into my top layer of card and then created the large Bed of  Lace configuration of dies to elegantly surround the oval topper (from the Elegant Twist Ovals Etched Dies by Spellbinders).

There is a subtle addition of pearl embellishments which also form the centre of my flowers (Cinch & Go IV SKU S4-982).

I used the Bed of Lace Etched Dies to decorate this plain little black treat holder.  The layering of the beautiful intricate die over some pink glitter card stock really gives a simple little box front the "WOW" factor.  

Designer Tip:  Create dimension with your die-cuts but offsetting die cuts beneath the top layer in a complimentary colour, as I have demonstrated with my card project.

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a walkthrough of the entire collection.

  2. Hi Linda! Am loving your beautiful creations - especially these using "Bed of Lace." Awesome!

    1. Thanks Tara - I can't wait to see what you do with it xxx

  3. Two beautiful projects and am in love with the new Picot die!

  4. You have brought equal parts of a wonderful die, strategy and creativity to meld all into a refreshingly stimulating, elegant project - a Black Tie affair. The repetition of the triangular placement of the flowers, as well at the triangular formation of the "bow" (loops down eye-catching) and placement of the pink behind the die cutout is very striking and dramatic indeed.

  5. Wow how different these projects are, both are fabulous,loving the elegance of them, stunning creations, Hugs Liz x

  6. oh wow, you have brought the true elegant beauty out of these dies. Both your pieces have blown me away. Thank you.
