Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month Blog Hop – Dahlia Dimensional Doily
This month is coming up all flowers! We turned spring up a notch and have more "unique" blooming flowers for you to try. Today I'm introducing a set of dimensional flowers in the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the month for April 2021, Dahlia Dimensional Doily.
Dies were furnished to Creative Team Members by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.
Three new flowers. We are showcasing three new flowers! Easy, easier, easiest. Easy - Dahlia Dimensional Doily is a flower made with round disks that link together to form the base and the petals. Built on the same concept as dimensional doilies, this representation of flowers creates a focal element that has some height. Easier - One round piece in the set, with eight cut and folded circles combines to make a familiar round dimensional flower. Easiest - Sweet spiral flowers with a score line that lets you fold over and shape the spiral. Oh, and don't forget a background that when cut twice gives you a full A2 Background.
All together the background and flowers create a sweet, layered dimensional finished card that can be made for an A2 or an A7 card base!
There are 11 dies included in the Dahlia Dimensional Doily.
My Project Today using Dahlia Dimensional Doily.
For my card project I decided to go big with the fabulous dhalia dies, making the large flower the star of the show. I stuck to a simple colour palette and added lots of layers to really create depth and dimension.
The sentiment is from Becca's Make A Scene Sentiments photopolymer stamps.
For my little box project I decided to use the two spiral dies in the set to make some rolled roses for my topper. I finished each flower by adding pearly beads to the centre. They sit across a topper which was made from the Picot Petite Ovals Etched Dies also designed by Becca.
Designer Tip: Have you noticed the embossed panel on the top of my box?
This was made using the two intricate panel dies in the April Kit. Instead of die-cutting them, I dry embossed them using my die-cutting machine !! Its a great way of stretching those dies.
