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 tippie toes to show you a new collection! Ta-dah!!! Today is the introduction of the new Amazing Paper Grace Collection Make A Scene! It was designed by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders. Stay tuned for a video link at the bottom of the post.
NOW, TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU . . . Becca is known for interactive die cutting collections such as 3D Vignettes and Shadowbox Vignettes. Becca creates a new twist on interactive that you can also use with flat cards and with existing die collections. That means new material for the products you already own!
What is MAKE A SCENE?
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 use one of six multi-piece 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’re showing you so many creative options! 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 Wedding Scene Cards
Using the S6-165 Make a Scene Card Base and S4-1088 Wedded Bliss Scene, I’ve made a diorama-like of card. Also included are S6-168 Scallop Façade Frame, S5-436 Grand Cinch and Go Flowers, STP-025 Make A Scene Sentiments, and S5-435 Elegant Adornments.
My card when closed, has a stenciled cloud on the front ‘doors’, and when you pull the sides to open the scene, the clouds continue along the sides and back. The bride and groom stand in front of a gazebo, with Mr and Mrs in script behind them. All the die cuts are layered in white a silver shadow. The groom is in black, which is just another layer that I trimmed to add more dimension to the scene.
The card front is embellished with handmade paper flowers using the Grand Cinch and Go Flowers die, and the frame is the Scallop Facade Frame. You can see on the left and right edges of the card where you pull the pieces outward to Make A Scene!
My second project is a tag to tuck in with a gift, or you can punch a hole and add a ribbon to it. I repeat the same layering to match the card. The ‘Mr Mrs; is fussy cut to remove the ‘and’ so it would fit here.
Designer Tip: Use a sturdy cardstock, it will help the card stand up, open, and close so much easier. Have fun with layers and dimensional adhesives, however don’t add too much bulk to the inserts.

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.
