Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Grateful Lattice
Hi there sweet friends!  Happy Monday morning!!  Peeking in real quick to share a card I’ve had on my mind.  It’s a bit like a window but I love the Spellbinders Grateful Lattice - it simply makes the background.  The frame is made using Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence and Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight.  It’s embellished using the three smallest dies from Spellbinders Rose Creations, to make the flowers.  I finished it off by popping a tag on to the side of the frame from Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags.    Instructions . . .  coming right up!

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Create a card base with cream cardstock that measures 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″.  (Card bases are made with two pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ paper scored and glued as in this Hinge Video.  
  2. With pink cardstock, cut a panel 4-3/4″ x 6-3/4″.  Attach to card base with foam tape (leave bottom pieces of foam tape not adhered until later).
  3. Cut a panel  from design paper 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″.  Cut/emboss Grateful Lattice from a cream panel 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″.  Combine both layers then attach to card base using double foam.
  4. Cut a panel 4″ x 5-1/4″ then center and cut Labels Twenty Eight #5.  Cut/emboss frame from Divine Eloquence and Labels Twenty Eight #4 combined.  Combine both layers then attach to card base with double foam tape.
  5. Embellish Grateful Lattice with pearls, bow and 3 flowers made from  3 graduated sizes from Rose Creations.
  6. Cut/emboss the oval tag from Back to Basic Tags, add pearl brad and attach oval to inside of frame with foam tape.

Encouragement Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design If You Don't Believe in Miracles and Spellbinders
Good morning friends!  Just another quick thought about the written word.  There’s a poem that says, that the scent of the rose always lingers on the hand of the giver, and I mused yesterday about how true that statement is.  Most of my cards are inspirational in nature and I have to admit that by the time I’m done with the card, I feel like I’ve reaped the wisdom of the message.  What a blessing, right?  As you may well imagine, even during the rare store bought card purchase, I stand for hours making sure to pick exactly the right words.  Same with handmade, the selection of the sentiment takes me as long, if not longer, than picking the color.  Today I picked a bold sentiment from Quietfire Design from the If You Don’t Believe in Miracles set.

I’m not going to do a step by step today, but I’ll give you a couple of clues about how this card goes together; it is simpler than it looks.  It’s a regular card base with an embossed background – I used Spellbinders Dainty Dots (Side B).  On top of the embossed background is Spellbinders Grand Ovals cut in half vertically then the cut side of each oval is glued to the edge of the card and the round edges scored and folded in on a diagonal – the resulting piece looks like a diamond.  Both diamond pieces are arranged to meet in the middle.  I cut a matching piece of embossed cardstock into the same diamond shape to line the inside of the oval.  Underneath each of the scored rounded edges I lined with Spellbinders Grand Decorative Oval for the pretty detail.  On top of that I mounted the filigree piece from Spellbinders Tranquil Moments.  Here is a kind of behind the scenes quick look at the piece (I used two)  I put on my card to create the background illusion.

I thought this was a nifty trick and even if you don’t have the Grands to do it with, scale it down and try it out with the core Spellbinders Circle shapes and some of the decorative circles.  If I get a chance, I’ll whip up a smaller sample for you.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Exquisite Labels Eleven #amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there sweet friends, I have an easy peasy, all die, no measuring card to share with you today.  I was inspired by the sentiment but I wanted to keep it simple.  Three layers, that’s all and since they are staggered, the layer behind them shows off very well.  The sentiment is Wordsworth from a set called the Women Collection – I just adore Louisa May Alcott.WRBF-4364-2014
I used Spellbinders Exquisite Labels Eleven for my card base.  I have a video on how to cut and join each of two pieces for a hinged card – you can see that HERE.  The next layer is the Mediterranean Medallion M-Bossabilities 3D folder, then the upper layer is Spellbinders Valiant Honor.  The flowers are embellished with the petite little leaves and swirls from Spellbinders Sprigs.

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Cut/emboss two Exquisite Labels Eleven from cream cardstock.  One of the cuts must encase a 1″ horizontal fold in order to make a hinge.  For visual learners see the Hinge Video.  
  2. With pink cardstock, emboss Mediterranean Medallion M-Bossibilities 3D Folder and trim around the motif edge with an exacto knife.
  3. Cut/emboss second largest motif from Valiant Honor with cream cardstock.  Stamp with sentiment then attach to Mediterranean Medallion with double foam tape.
  4. Take an 8″ length of  Blossom ribbon to span across card vertically over both layers of Mediterranean Medallion and Valiant Honor, securing on back with tape.  Attach to card base using double foam.
  5. Embellish with pearls and add bow on top of vertical span of ribbon.
  6. Cut/emboss leaf piece of Sprigs with green cardstock, and cut/emboss flourish piece of sprigs with cream cardstock. 
  7. Add Sprigs and flowers to bow.
