Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Collection with "Beautiful Friend Card and Tag and Blog Hop

 Welcome to my creative space!

Today I've paired the gorgeous Amazing Paper Grace Half Slimline Oval (S4-1198) and Layered Daisies (S4-1193) from the Layered Fleur Bouquet Slimline Collection to create this beautiful card and coordinating gift tag set. These beautiful daisies remind me of a warm summer day, so I was inspired to create using grugy, muted colors with pops of warm sunshine yellow. 

This sentiment from the Half Slimline Oval set cut from vibrant sunshine yellow, makes this a sweet ensemble that would be perfect to celebrate a birthday or special life event for a treasured friend.

These gorgeous open flowers have just a little dimension that I added with a ball stylus and lay quite flat so that these would be easy to post in the mail. Be sure to scroll down to check out my "What I Made" section with all the details on how I created this summery ensemble. There are also links for creations from the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team for more inspiration with this amazing collection.

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

My Projects for Today

What I Made
I paired the Half Slimline Oval Die Set with the Layered Daisies Set to create this grungy slimline card and gift tag with pops of sunshine. Keep on scrolling for more photos and details.

The scrolled iron work oval is created by cutting the half oval twice and placing them together to form this gorgeous design. The beautiful flowers are layered over the oval, then the sweet sentiment is layered over both.

My accessory with these fabulous dies is a sweet burlap tag. I wanted to show you that these sets can be combined for a quick and easy gift tag by using a precut tag with one of the gorgeous daisies paired with the friend portion of the sentiment.

When I think of summer daisies, I picture sweet feathery white blossoms with bright yellow centers. For the petal layers to be more visible, I added a bit of grungy grey inking. The leaves and buds are beautifully embossed with these fabulous dies, so I also inked them with green to highlight the gorgeous designs and add some natural shading.

This sentiment is die cut 5 times from 120lb cover weight white cardstock. The top layer is inked to give it a bright pop of yellow and all of the layers are adhered together to give the sentiment some beautiful dimension and more stability.

The edges of the iron scrolled oval are inked to add shading and visual dimension. I've popped on a few sparking rhinestones to add just a little bling.

The background paper behind the scrollwork is randomly stamped with a script stamp and inked around the edges. I rolled the stamp around my fingers so that the edges of the stamping are more organic. 

I created this sweet daisy while I was creating the ones I used on the card making this quick and easy to put together. The Friend sentiment here is also layered and inked like the one on the card. This little bee is from a set of bee charms I picked up on Amazon, but any little insect would be adorable here. 

One more view of the sweet card.

Designer Tip: Layering die cut sentiments gives them more stability and dimension.
