Amazing Paper Grace: August 2020 Die of the Month Blog Hop - Pop Up 3D Vignette Telephone

Hold the phone!!!  It has been an exciting week for us all!!  We've been waiting with bated breath to announce our Creative Team!  Many are waiting for their dies to arrive but two of our newest designers are joining in today.  Today we are sharing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for August 2020 -  Pop up 3D Vignette Telephone.  It's super cute and guaranteed to bring a smile!

**I receive products from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken, Spellbinders® Paper Arts, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**

3D Vignette Phone Details

We've spent all month making funny phone jokes and puns!  Do you realize this little relic is something that most teenyboppers haven't seen in person?  Just as with the typewriter, the phone is an iconic part of our history and technology.  Ever evolving, this phone will always be a part of our coming of age.  During the month we played "I Spy" to peek into how folks were using this die and this is what we found:

  1. A shaker card
  2. A notepad holder
  3. A mini 4-page scrapbook (which will hold Instax pictures)
  4. A gift card holder
  5. A card with multiple sentiments
  6. A basket

We're sure there are more, but in the meantime, here is some additional inspiration to pique your creativity.
There are SIXTEEN dies included in the Telephone Set
My Project Today using 3D Vignette Telephone

This 3D Vignette Telephone is just too cute! Yes, I used them when I was growing up and mine was pink! LOL! Zoom calls seem to be a popular way to connect with one another via the internet.

One of my reader's clubs wanted to try a Zoom Book Club Call. So I decided to create a card filled with questions for each of the slots and send it to the hostess.

Then I thought why not add a goodie bag to go with the card! What do you think?

I made a pocket behind the body of the telephone so that when you pick up the receiver, you get a cute "Let's Chat" message! 

Designer Tip: Don't forget after die-cutting the telephone body and receiver, do the emboss step too! You'll get that wonderful embossed detail that really makes this set shine! I lightly water mist the cardstock before cutting and embossing for a crisp design.

Thanks for stopping in!
