Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Rose Garden Promise
Hi Crafty Friends,
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.
We want to inspire you with different combinations using the December Die of the Month, Rose Garden Promise etched die. These are a few of our ideas!

I bet you can come up with a few, share them in a comment!
Here is the picture of the die.
I have two projects made from the above die set. One is card to give the stained glass effect. Do you think I could achieve that look on my card???
One is a stained glass card and the other is a gift box .
My first card has the look of stained glass and I was really happy because this die will help you to really get that effect.
To make this card I cut two pieces of the inner design rose die in water colour paper. I placed the die cut on another paper of same size and coloured the roses and leaves with water colour in shades of pink and green,
Then I adhered the other die cut piece on top of this. Next, I cut the same die cut in black card stock and adhered on the top. I distressed the background with Victorian velvet and Antique linen distress inks. Then I stamped a sentiment inside the centre part. The glass like effect was given with glossy accents.
I completed my card with roses and rose buds from Candlewick Rosebuds die.
My second project is gift box that has a silver and soft pink tone. The use of gold or silver paper really enhances the look of any project and this die is just perfect with gold and silver die cut.
Tip : Add two or three layers of the die cut together to get a depth and add glossy accents to get the stained glass effect.
