Amazing Paper Grace New Release: Sweet Serenade Blog Hop ~ Shabby Boxed Notecard Set

Welcome to my creative space!!

The Sweet Serenade Notecard Collection is simply to extend a sweet thought or warm greeting to let them know you’re thinking of them through a heartwarming notecard. The inspiration behind this collection is the ability to create beautiful notecards. Everything in this collection coordinates together from the card base to the embellishments to the stamps to make wonderful notecard creations! Notecards also make a wonderful gift as a boxed set! Swoon your family and friends with a special handmade gift! Make it seasonal for fall or for the holidays. Maybe a specific style such as soft vintage, clean and simple, or even a mixed media twist!

Today's projects were created with dies provided by Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace.

The focal die set I'm using for my notecard set is: 

I've also used these stamp sets from the collection:

These gorgeous die sets are also part of the Sweet Serenade Collection:

Here are some close-ups of my notecart set
A handmade notecard set is such a wonderful and thoughtful gift. The Scalloped Symphony Notecard Die Set includes all the amazing dies needed to create a beautiful set for someone special in your life, or to create a batch of gorgeous cards to send out for any occasion.

This handcrafted kraft cardstock box is embellished with a medallion cut from 110lb white cardstock using the Scalloped Symphony Notecard Die Set. I added a touch of mixed media by heat embossing the medallion with embossing enamel. This is an easy way to add texture and a bit of shine to any die cut project. The edges of the patterned paper block are inked to add contrast and a shabby/grungy feel.

The flowers and foliage are created with the Petite Floral Potpourri Die Set. The flowers are cut from coordinating patterned paper and the tips of each petal are inked for contrast. A stylus is used to shape the petals and prills are added to the center of each blossom. The foliage is cut from a neutral patterned paper and colored with distress ink.  

Card Close-ups:
The card bases are cut with the border die from the Scalloped Symphony Die set which includes a piece to place in the center to score the card so it's easy to fold in just the right place!

The card medallions on each card are heat embossed like the lid of the box. The envelopes are hand crafted from coordinating papers. Each of the sentiments is stamped onto coordinating paper using the stamp sets included in this collection.

I thought you might enjoy seeing a close-up of each card.

Designer Tip: 
When folding the cards, match up the holes
on the bottom for perfect alignment.
