Rose Garden Promise - The Amazing Paper Grace December 2020 Die of the Month

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.

My Project Today using Rose Garden Promise

I decided to make a card using Aqua Blue, Navy Blue and Gold accents.   The centre panel provides room for a sizeable sentiment and I opted to foil my on a slant using the Heart Melt Glimmer Hot Foil Plates and Die set SKU-218.  

I think the Die of the Month is so beautiful that it necessitates little if any embellishing, so I kept it fairly simple, applying a simple satin bow with a sparkly gem.


Designer Tip:  If you can, try to keep the flower and leaf die-cuts in the large piece  that they are cut from.  Remove the large non flower/leaf sections and then apply a little glue to the back of the flower and leaves.  Hold that over the piece that will be taking the inserts and pop each section into place.   It is best to work on one section at a time.

I occurred to me when I was making my card that this set would be perfect for creating a photo mount for special photos.

I have one such special photo taken of my lovely daughter when she was all dressed up and ready for her school prom.   I chose a pretty colour pallette and am absolutely thrilled with how this turned out:-

She really is my little English Rose and the dies are just perfect for framing this lovely pose, taken as she was on her way off to the prom.
