The May APG Die of the Month, Nostalgic Serenade Card Frame Die, is absolutely stunning!! Even the name of the Die is beautiful, don't ya think?! This Die could be used to make so many types of projects!

Here is what the Die looks like~

My First Project Today:

Since it's Mother's Day, I had to make something with my kiddos in it! :) This beautiful Die fits perfectly over a shadowbox, which I made with the APG Shadowbox Frame with 3/4" Border Etched Dies.

This was so fun and easy to make. I cut a piece of acrylic large enough to adhere over the frame and then stamped onto it centering it over the picture. I then added the large Die cut over that and added lots of pearls.

I then hot glued a little wooden stand to the bottom of the frame and added some ribbon. This would make a great Mother's Day gift for sure!

My Second Project~

I made a simple but elegant card with these gorgeous Dies! These are one of those Die Sets that you could use over and over again and make them look so different! The sentiment I used on this card is from the Beautiful Dreamer Stamp and Die Set by Becca. I think, this would make a perfect graduation card!

For this month's Die of the Month, we cut it up and folded it up!  More inspiration is just a click away.  Stop by with each Creative Team Member to see how they manipulated this die to come up with a unique project for you to try!

Beautiful cards! Love how you used the shadow box with the frame! I'll need to borrow that idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Hugs, Christine

I just have to tell you how much I loved your shadow box card. My daughter graduated with her MBA and undergrad degrees on the weekend and her boss at her part time job took us to a VERY exclusive private club for a celebration dinner — a once in a lifetime experience. I want to send a thank you card to him and his wife for giving us this wonderful evening. The second I saw your creation I knew that was it! We took wonderful photos of his family with our daughter, whom they treat like their own (we live five hours away from her US university in Canada). Your idea is perfect. I will print one of the photos and the overlay — brilliant BTW — and mail it off. I only hope I can do justice using some of Becca’s other dies to make it look similar. Thank you for your beautiful inspiration. Lynette
