AMAZING PAPER GRACE OCTOBER DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


Have you ever needed to make a card and hunted through your stash and found that you could not find a sentiment with the right word?  Well, look no more!  It was out of that frustration that Becca created a sweet set that will accommodate that exact word you are looking for with One Kind Word Alphabet Collage.  

Now you can headline with Sorry, Amazing, Silly, Fierce, Happy, Heaven, Gather, Home, Grow, Friend, Bestie and the list goes on and on.  No need to stick with one word, you can have two - U Rock, Adore U, My Love.

One of the things we share when we share a handmade card, is kindness.  What better way to share that kindness than to put the exact word you mean on the front of the card.  Nothing like getting right to the point! The Alphabet collage is a card in and of itself but the words you can make with the letters that fall out, are priceless.  You can use the 5 x 7 Sentiment Frame or go naked and simply make up your own sentiment.

As soon as I saw this Die Set, I thought of a Teacher card. I guess because of the alphabet dies. But the amazing thing about this Die set is that you can create ANY words or sentiments that  you want. It can be made into a shabby card, or a clean and simple card or anything in between. So FUN!

                  

My Project Today:


I simply die cut the large frame die using some dark blue cardstock and another using white cardstock. I then adhered the white frame behind the blue one slightly off center so the blue would have a white "shadow". I then die cut the letters out using light green, white and red cardstock. I then adhered the white "Thank You" onto a piece of black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom portion of the blue frame. I then added the green ABC letters to a piece of red cardstock and then adhered that to the top portion of the frame. Then the red TEACHER letters to the white banner. I then finished it off with some pearls, red ribbon and ruler ribbon.

Lovely card. I think I would use the word Friend as the card could be used for may occasions

You have a way with words, Melissa! What a cute card yet so elegant. I love the 'ruler' ribbon, what a finishing touch!

This is so different from what I would have thought to make with the alphabet die. Especially love the ruler ribbon. I plan on using the die for multiple occasions. My first card will be an inspirational card using the word Believe.

This card couldn't be more perfect and those alphabet dies look amazing! Love the ABC.

Connie L. Riley said...

What a clever card. I like the use of multiple layers - it sets off the thank you sentiment very well. This is a great example of what a wide variety of sentiments can be used with the new die. My word to use will be "Peace" for Christmas cards.

Carol Rossouw said...

Love this card! Always amazed at what Becca comes up with - especially the versatility of her dies. A word to spell? HOPE!

Sue D said...

Perfect teacher card and I like how many words you made. I would use the word Blessings for Thanksgiving cards.

Rozy said...

Great card! Lucky the teacher who receives this. Perfect use of the die and letters. My word would be 'LOVE." Thanks for sharing.

Lori Podolsky said...

Such a wonderful card! The recipient will be in for a treat, for sure! I would use the word "Hello" because of its versatility.
