Hello from Scotland! It is Bibi Cameron here and I’m happy to be able to share ideas and inspiration using some of the dies from the latest 3D Vignette Mini Album collection by Becca Feeken. I’m all about gold but I choose silver and holographic cardstock for the 3 main projects today.
I thought this stunning neutral color will allow me to show you the true beauty of the die cuts.
- Using Sweet Cottage Flowers Dies to die cut a piece of barely grey cardstock.
- Spray the floral die cuts with water and allow the paper to absorb it.
- Next, gently crush the die cuts like if you were making small paper balls.
- Allow the paper to dry for several hours or overnight.
- Carefully unfold the die cuts.
- Glue die cuts together.

Box Lid and Floral Topper
The large Woven Trellis Side Pocket Die is great to make the lid for a 3-5/8″x 3-5/8″ inches box.
- Simply die cut 2 pockets, fold the paper over the scoring lines created by the dies and glue the die cuts together to make a square lid.
- Using a circle punch make holes on both ends of the lid flaps and thread a ribbon to keep the lid shape.
- Embellish with wrinkled flowers made using Sweet Cottage Flowers Dies and Fashion Silver embellishments.
- Add a silver foiled banner with a sentiment to customize the box to any special occasion.
Gift Card and Bag with Embellishment Pocket
Use the pockets or corner die cuts to embellish any project.
I embellished a gift bag using Woven Trellis Side Pocket Die. This time I trimmed the edges of the die-cut and I only adhered the pocket corners to the gift bag so that the pocket will hold a small treat, a gift card envelope or a mini card.
I made the gift card envelope using the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the month for January 2020. The envelope measures 3 x 4″ inches.
This project also features ideas to mix and match supplies. I also made a small heart tag using the Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of the month for January 2020.
For the banner, I used Everyday Sentiments glimmer plates as well.
Clean and Simple Card Background
The leave die included in Sweet Cottage Flowers Die set is just beautiful! Create a simple die-cut background by simply gluing several die cuts directly on the front panel of a card base. To achieve color coordination, add a foiled or embossed sentiment and I added fashion silver embellishments.
This card measures 4-1/4 “x 5-1/2 inches but you can make it in any size.
Top Folding Cards
Becca Feeken dies are traditional, elegant and intricate and although the dies made all the hard work and they have been designed to make the most eye-catching 3D projects, you can make quick and easy cards like those in the picture above.
Watch video tutorial below or on Youtube:
To make the shaped card base all you have to do is to cut two panels with the large frame die. Then trim the hooks at the sides of the panels.
Score a line at 1’1’4 inches from the top of one of the die cuts and glue the panels together. These shaped cards will fit a standard C6 envelope. You might need to trim the hair of each side to close the envelope.
For the box above I used one die from Woven Trellis Corner and edges die set. This die set includes a mini version of the larger pocket die used in projects above and I couldn’t resist making a simple embellishment for a 4×4″ box.
The flower was also made using Sweet Cottage Flowers Dies as well but here I shape it with a stylus and I applied distress inks on the edges of the paper. The same die cut flower can look totally different this way!
To make the box lid I used a 6×6 sheet of paper from Love the Moment paper pad and I scored all around the edges at 1″ inch.
The box base was made out of 300 grams of grey cardstock. I used an 8×8 ” inches piece of cardstock I trimmed 1/8″ of each side and I scored the paper at 2″.
Here I also added a mini tag made using glimmer plates from the spellbinders glimmer plates of the month.
