Good morning friends! This has been the week of tone on tone here on my blog and I wanted to show you one more alternative. This is layered tone on tone where a glimmer of another color shows through from the back. Here again it adds some color but on this particular card helps to bring a little bit of definition to the border I’ve used.
Walk Through on How to Make Card
This is a basic 6″ x 6″ card with a matted layer that is 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″. I simply glued a square directly to my matted layer using Spellbinders Pierced Squares and stamped inside the square with my sentiment.
The focal panel is cut from Spellbinders Gothic Border – I cut this border four times and glued it together matching at the corners to make a frame. Tiny pieces of double layered foam tape elevate it.
One bow with short tales to span the width of the bottom border and pearls around the square are simple enough to give a little bit of flair!

Hi Becca. Classic and classy. Love it.
Good morning Becca,
Until I see dies and how you use them, I never actually get a “feel” for what it looks like. You always bring out the best of a die I cannot fathom. This one is no exception. Truly beautiful card! Will be looking for this one at Scrapbook Expo in Orlando. Are you going to be attending-wish you were teaching a class!!!
I just LOVE this card. Now it’s another die to purchase. Like I need an excuse to buy more. Lol
Another tone on tone BEAUTY!!!!
How lovely! What beautiful card and the die is spectacular.
Oh my. Becca, this card is so pretty!! I love that border. It is just beautiful raised up like that. It frames your sentiment perfectly. Gorgeous!!
Beautiful. Your tone on tone cards are wonderful. I really like how you created the frame from the border die.
How can anything so simple look so good?? I’m loving this week!!
Wow, what a treat, Becca!
I just love this die. Gorgeous card.
Love & blessings,
Thank you again Becca…simple is good! But you’ve given us too many ideas and I, with too little time! God bless!
Another great card how do you do it so many ideas!
Totally amazing card here again Becca, soo beautiful and elegant as usual. And this simple yet sooo elegant card can just work for simply any ocasion, I can think of. I absolutely LOVE it.
Apologies if those shows up twice, my computer did something weird with the first copy…
Wow – just wow. It takes a lot to say something just took my breath way, but that gothic square frame just did! Love the sentiment, but it could have been anything – it was secondary to design. Kudos, bows to the Mistress (Master was just wrong!) all hail…certainly deserved. This card is just all that and more. THanks, Becca…just thanks.
Love how you used the boarder die, don’t have that one, but will try it with another one I have and see if it works.
Morning Becca, This is a very pretty and elegant tone on tone with a flash of colour, I adore this Gothic border.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Love, love, love how you used the Gothic Borders to make a frame! What an amazing idea and one I’m going to have to ‘case’. I wish I had the vision you have in how to alter what you have to make something new!
I like this tone on tone card the best.
With my wrist still not right, I can’t
stamp too well. But I plan to try that soon.
Another beautiful card today. It is magnificent.
Your card is beautiful. I am trying to keep my mind occupied, my husband died yesterday and all I’ve been doing is crying.
Dear Kathleen I am so sorry for your loss !
Hopefully you have family to share this with there is nothing
anyone can say except take care of yourself.
Please know that even though we don’t know each other personally
on this blog we do care and support each other with kind thoughts.
Oh Kathleen…I’m so so sorry for your loss and I just want you to know that I care.
Sending you lots of comforting hugs!
Please accept my condolences. Having lost my husband several years ago, I know what that pain is like. I sincerely hope you have friends and family (a support group) that can help you through the worst. The immediate pain subsides in time but the sense of loss remains. I hope there are wonderful memories that can help you as well. That is what still helps me and it has been nearly seven years. The love you felt will always be there. Take heart. May God guide your heart back to peace. Blessings to you!
So very sorry for your loss Kathleen. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain you must be feeling. Hopefully you have family and close friends to help you through this tough time. Sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Bless you.
Wow!!!! You have been on a roll Becca. I really love this card. This border is beautiful. I am such a fan of your white on white cards and when you add a touch of gold as well. Pure heaven.
Speaking of which, this border would look wonderful paired with one of the beautiful Crosses set in the center for a sympathy card, Easter card, Baptism, First Holy Communion etc. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
Hi Becca, I’ve really enjoyed your tone on tone this week. Such a nice, elegant look. I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day and a weekend that’s fit for recharging your creative juices. Hugs, Diana
I’m loving the pearly white with gold combo and that Gothic border is so lovely… another one for my wishlist!
Gorgeous card Becca…yes, you are amazing!!!
Just gorgeous! Soooo pretty. You could use for any occasion by just changing the colors. Blessings, Lisa
Hi Becca, have just checked out your white on white cards and the three that I saw are absolutely gorgeous usually check everyday but thought you were only posting on Friday with your giveaway so must make sure I check everyday.
So beautiful, Becca!
And the border die you have used is gorgeous :))
This is another gorgeous piece of eye candy that you have given us. I have the ‘Gothic Squares Die’ and now thanks to you I have several ideas with which to use it. Thanks ever so much for your generosity in sharing your discerning eye for the use of Spellbinder’s dies. Learning!
Hi Becca. Another gorgeous card in white and gold. The gothic border die is lovely and now on my list to buy. Your beautiful bow finishes the card to perfection. X
WOW! Stunning! Love this Gothic Boarder, I have added this to my wish list as it is sooo beautiful, love it. You have framed your verse/sentiment so beautifully with it too.
Love & Hugs
