For Someone Special!

Hello, friends!  I have a card to share today using the August APG Die of the Month. 

My card today uses August's Amazing Paper Grace (APG) Die of the Month.  I am also using More Sentiments Glimmer set and Glimmering Butterflies set.  This month's APG is Lattice Petal Foldover.  I looked at the pieces of the die set, which is an amazing value, and chose to showcase the versatility of some of the dies and create a circle shaker card.

 I started with white card stock trimmed smaller than the card base. I ink blended a panel using spun sugar, worn lipstick, and abandon coral distress inks.  I set the panel aside to dry. I used the half die cut detailed shapes included in the APG Kit to die cut the half circle fretwork at the top of a white card stock panel and another at the bottom. I added this panel to the ink blended panel using foam tape and adhere it to a top folding white card stock base

For the focal shaker circle, I layered two of the half circle dies from the APG Kit  together before diecutting using washi tape to create a beautiful detailed circle image. I die cut the panel out with a circle die. I ink blended another panel using the same inks to sandwich behind the panel once my shaker elements were added. I used an artist brush and Starry Colors watercolors to add gold splatters. 

I used the leftover ink blended section to diecut the little spiral dies included in this month's APG Kit to create the flowers.  I added some Jewel Mix to the centers. I used gold foiled paper to diecut the leaves.

For the butterfly, I gold foiled the Glimmering Butterflies set.  I die cut with the included butterfly die.  For the sentiment, I gold foiled and die cut with a banner die.  I assembled the card. I added some foam tape to the back of the sentiment. I finished the card with a few gold metallic pearls.
