Amazing Paper Grace: Introducing the Make A Scene Collection with I Love Us Anniversary Card

Hi crafty friends! It seems like we have been waiting for months for February to roll around. We have been working in the background, holding our breath, tapping our feet and waiting on tippy toes to show you a new collection! Ta-dah!!! Today we are introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Collection called Make A Scene!!! It was designed by Becca Feeken and is available at Spellbinders. Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post.

Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace sent me these innovative dies to create both my slider card and shaped card - so versatile!


In the past, Becca has created several interactive collections . . remember 3D Vignettes and remember Shadowbox Vignettes? One of the things Becca does is she tries to create a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with past collections. That means new material for your old material.


Make A Scene is an interactive card collection and a flat card collection, all in one - you choose based on your style.

The interactive portion is made with a card base that folds in six different layered scenery options. The 3D card base folds flat but slides open to reveal a dimensional scene. Since it has a 3D profile, the opened card makes quite a splash and can be set out on a desk for showing off. The card base is huge and it offers you the chance to snag one of six scenes that cover many occasions. If the six scenes are not your occasion du jour, then by all means dive into your huge stash of dies and insert your own contents.

The flat card portion is made with the individual scenes. Each of the components for the scenes can be cut onto the top of a panel and used on a flat card or as part of a 3D Vignette or as part of a shadowbox scene.

Today we are prepared to show you - each Creative Team Member has created both a 3D Card and a Flat Card so that you can see the best of both worlds!

My Projects for Today

Using S6-165 Make a Scene Card Base with S4-1088 Wedded Bliss Scene Etched Dies, I created a two-piece ensemble of an interactive Wedding Anniversary Card and an Anniversary Shaped Card. Other supporting sets are S5-435 Elegant Adornments, S5-436 Grand Cinch and Go Flowers, S6-168 Scallop Fascade Frame and STP-025 Make a Scene Sentiments Clear Stamp.

I Love Us Anniversary Card

For the card base, I used these dies from the Make a Scene Card Base and pretty patterned papers to come up with this. I LOVE how it turned out!

I used two of the scenes from the Wedded Bliss Scene set as I wanted the background of the patterned paper to shine through. The gazebo scene had a lot of details and was highlighted in both cards.

The flower was also used in both cards. I used the Grand Cinch and Go Flowers with patterned papers and inked the edges as well as the creases from shaping the petals.

After adhering the layers with Adhesive Dots Medium, add a pool of glue from the Dual Tip Glue Pen in the center and pour Flower Pearls on top. Leave overnight and tap off excess in the morning. Love the chunky center it creates!

Anniversary Scallop Shaped Card

Using the outline die from the Scallop Fascade Frame set, it made a sweet silhouette of a card. Most of the die designs were used from the same set, except for the Gazebo and flower accent.

Designers Tip: When you get a new set of dies, cut all the pieces with a solid color cardstock. Then play around with the placement of the shapes. You never know what you might discover! Try it.

How to Assemble:

When you see the card base it will make total sense how this goes together. Here is a quick start video to lay it all out for you.
