Hi there blog friends!! I’ hope you’ll indulge me, today I’m showing another sample. If you’re interested in card making ideas don’t forget about long cards. I’ve made tall upright card in the past but I’m partial to the wide long card, and remember that a 4-1/8″ x 9″ card fits perfectly into a #10 business size envelope. Not sure why I don’t think to make this layout more often. Today I’m using JustRite Custom Filigree Corners die. This time around I’m using the smaller of the two corners – it is the perfect size for many projects. So, I figured out that by placing two of the corners together you can form a perfect square. Since there’s a small hole along the middle of each side, when combined the two holes are a perfect distance to thread a trinket pin. I pulled the Friend sentiment from Just The Right Words and tied it onto the bow after stamping onto a tiny tag from Spellbinders Back to Basics. I say this all the time but I’m serious, this is a simple card!!
Here’s your Step By Step recap of die cuts and layers stacked from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 4-1/4″ x 9″, foam tape, cream mat layer cut to 3-3/4″ x 8-1/2″, foam tape, green mat layer cut to 3-1/8″ x 7-7/8″, design paper layer cut to 3-1/4″ x 8″, foam tape, ribbon, three squares assembled from six small filigree corners, pearl flourish. (This one is slightly oversized for a business envelope but most of my cards are sent in padded envies :-)

Becca I hold good thoughts and prayers for you. Take care and GB
Good morning Becca,
What a pretty card and an idea; use for “dull” corners that until now were only that. I love the colours that you have chosen and they match with the pretty paper just lovely. And just for a change i have all the ingredients to make a similar card, so thank you Becca for your beautiful inspiration.
(Central Scotland) or across the water
Love the little roses on the Corners…… the colours are so sweet!
I must look at your tutorials now I have found your blog.
I am looking forward to seeing your products on C/C tomorrow, even though I have sourced a few in the last month or so.
I still love looking, and dreaming which ones I can buy this time!
Wow, what a lovely card Becca! Such a breathtaking design. Love the doubble bow!
I don’t make long cards very often, but know you’ve inspired me to make one! I’m going to my craft room right away!
WOUW Becca, do you ever sleep lady? Another breathtaking creation here again. I absolutely LOVE everything your magical hands ever touch, as there always somes something amazing out of it in the end.
I can only totally agree to every word, that Patricia P said here above. She said exactly all I feel too about your awesome adventure here, and I really wish for you, that it will be the very fairytale for you, that we all dream about, cause if anybody deserves that it´s you, and I feel soo proud to have been following on the side all the way and see you get all recognition you sooo deserves. Best of luck sweet lady, as if you needed that LOL.

How beautiful this card is Becca – love the shape and the gorgeous filigree.

Hugs Lynda xx ( uk )
Hi Becca, welcome to the UK! I just love your cards and can’t wait to see your products used by the lovely Sue Wilson tomorrow on Create and Craft.
Absolutely beautiful, so pleased Sue Wilson passed your blog on to us all. Looking forward to tomorrow to see all the samples
I absolutely love that card. I never thought about making one long like that but now I will sure try it.
Just beautiful Becca!
Love it, you never let me down! I get so excited waiting for your card to pop up on my screen, I don’t think you have ever made anything that I did not like, thanks again for your awesome mind and craftiness!!
Stunning! What else can I say Becca .i love these long cards,I followed the design of the wedding card you did the same size and its beautiful. I all defiantly try this one too xx
Pretty card, you are amazing and super creative, God blessed you with exceptional talent. You give me inspiration, thanks for sharing.
Gorgeous card, the trinket pins add so much!
Very pretty! Love that you have subtly changed how your cards are looking. I’m really enjoying seeing them. I also really like that you are posting more often. Mwah to your blog!
I LOVE this card Becca..I’m always looking to make different shapes & never think of doing this size as a wide long card rather than upright. I also like the fact you used the Filigree Corner Dies as they are one of MY FAVORITEs.
I am almost done making an Anniversary card using the large corner Filigrees to make cones for roses and am just not getting them to look right. I’m hoping the bow on top covers most parts of them (just going to watch your tutorial on bow making.) I make dreadful bows. I may decide to do this card instead even though it won’t look as good. I think your hands are truly blessed. It has to be done by tomorrow and you don’t want to know how long it’s taken so far.
PS: I meant ” Look as good as yours”in my previous post :(
I found your blog by chance after reading one of the daily blogs from
Sue Wilson who is a regular presenter on Create and Craft TV channel
over here in the UK and I’m soooo… glad I did. What beautiful cards you
make, truly inspirational to us all. I will be following daily and cant wait
for the day when maybe you will be over here on Create and Craft too
where I’m sure you will get a massive following. Thank you for sharing
with us all your wonderful ideas.
This is super gorgeous !!
Gorgeous card Becca. These filigree corners dies just gave me a great ideal for using UTEES on them. Thanks for sharing!
I just LOVE your filigree corners and what you’ve done with them. All your cards are just so elegant! What a pity we won’t have my two favourite crafters on the shows tomorrow at C&C but I’m very grateful to see Sue Wilson back. So, one out of two ain’t bad. Could you see some occasion in the future where the two of you would team up?
The weatherfrogs have forecast serious rain and gales for Sunday, just THE PERFECT day to watch the shows with Sue and do some crafting afterwards.
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST GORGEOUS BECCA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
Another brillliant idea (the corners) and ANOTHER classy, elegant card Becca. Your artistic genius is as amazing as your generosity. Thank you, thank you for all you share with us.
Wow! Amazing Grace How sweet it looks…… I have just found your site & had to leave a comment for you. Your cards are so beautiful but more than that they have a quality of Peacefulness & Uniqueness about them that I’ve not seen anywhere else. I live on an island the smallness that many of you would find hard to comprehend, with no other crafters so I look on line for inspiration. May our Amazing God who knows all our needs bless & continue to guide and inspire you to continue to bless & inspire others with your work.
I have 1 question: Would it be possible to show a picture of each die you use, I for one find it hard to remember what die you’ve used as soon as I looked at a photo of the die I knew straight away. Sorry, it’s just a thought.
Another beauty Becca, love that die!
Love this!! I DO forget to make the long skinny card, and I love how it looks. Thank you for the reminder and the gorgeous inspiration. I got my corner dies just last week, so now I have a project on which to try them out! Thanks, Becca!!
I found your blog via Sue Wilson’s blog. All I can say us WOW! Your cards are beautiful and elegant. I live in England and Sue is on C&C today which I am so looking forward to.
Another piece of art! I wish I had a superlative that I haven’t yet used to describe how I feel about your card. My thesaurus is worn out on the pages with beautiful, gorgeous, masterpiece and so on. You get my drift? All to say is, you’ve done it again. Still delighted with your wonderful news.
30 minutes to lift off for your products on Create and Craft can’t wait. I think they will be a great hit with crafters.
Hi Becca, another stunning creation from you, you are such a talented lady and I am so look forward to seeing you here in U.K
great card ,so nice to put the two corners together -make perfect squares.Your dies are fab looking.Laura O
Watching you gorgeous cards on create and craft and oh boy are they so beautiful. They showed this card and on the bog screen it looks so stunning. I love these dies and stamps. Well done Becca you are a hit over here. Crafty hugs
Good afternoon Becca from “across the pond”. It’s a blustery wet and very cold day here but fortunately I’m snug, in the warm, and watching Sue Wilson on her second show of the day. Coincidentally I was just looking at this beautiful card on TV and it looks absolutely stunning as always. I just wanted to congratulate you once again on your fabulous designs, which everybody is loving, and judging from all the emails received during the shows today I suspect you have made lots of new friends here in the UK. Congratulations again and hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Very Elegant and sweet with that ribbon & bow. I love the colors on it too.
Enjoyed watching C & C today and looking at your beautiful cards. It would be so wonderful to see you on C & C. Am hoping Sue can persuade you to come over and visit us here.

Very pretty card, Becca!
Becca you always bring such a richness to your cards, and I can hardly wait to see each new project you create. You are such an inspiration to so many. Thanks for sharing with us.
FANTASTIC YOU ARE SO TAENTED X
You are the queen of filigree – love the corners with the pin threaded through them – very clever – must try that.
Such an unusual card – and so pretty! You so often think ‘out of the box’ and come up with another real winner!

Love your cards Becca. First came across your cards just searching the
internet but now Sue Wilson has you in mind I’m sure you will be featuring in the Create and Craft programmes that we British card makers are addicted to.
