Hi friends, today I’ve been delving into things on my desk and actually trying to make a few cards – I’ve been playing around with die layers. Since we’re well into spring, I was definitely feeling floral. I have a couple of gifts to make and send and I’ve been procrastinating. I whipped this up while avoiding what I was really supposed to be doing.
I pulled Spellbinders Labels 42 Decorative Accents because it’s like a square doily and I wanted something filigree to build upon. On top I added the pointed piece from Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence and peeking out from behind the squares that I mounted on top, I added the small loopy oval from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals (cut in half). On top of the square I added another loopy oval which I topped with yet another square, stamped sentiment and filigree border from Spellbinders Majesty.
You’ll be surprised to see that I distressed the edges of my cardstock. I rarely do that but it’s a nice change to all the precise layering I try to do. Fun! I finished up with a long tail bow and a button.

Love tiny design paper. This is really different and I like it. Sometimes I defy myself, too and do what I want rather than what I should. But all works out the way it is supposed to and the guilt fades. Thanks for sharing another darling card. Cards are my thing.
I love the Shabby Chic feel to this lovely card, Hun!!!! It has me wondering what this exact setup would look like in a robin’s egg blue or a light mint green :D <3 <3 <3
Oh, how I wish I could afford a Die cutting and embossing machine….sigh….Darn Deep Debt.
Don't suppose we could start a Die Cut and Emboss Swap called the "Giving Tree" here could we? Where those who have can make some Die Cuts and emboss a few small pieces of Cardstock so that the card makers like myself can still make lovely cards, too? Then perhaps by doing this we could each make a new friend in the process :) Just a thought I had.
Karen what a great idea…maybe some could head it up for becca, as we know she’s so busy…I don’t own a lot, but would be happy to share with others..
Beautiful card Becca! I love the distressed edges!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
I do like the distressed edges of the paper. It makes me think of fabric when you tear it! Beautiful die cut layers and the dainty floral paper is so pretty. Have a great rest of the weekend!
Oh oh oh love distress that’s so me…feel bad for Karen that doesn’t have dies and etc…maybe someone could start something like that…but sure it would be hard thing to do. Thanks becca for sharing
This is a very pretty card, the dies you have selected look gorgeous together X X X
Hi Becca. Another beautiful card using very pretty dies. I never think to layer up my dies like this so must find time to experiment with them to give it a try. Thank you x
Simply BEAUTIFUL card Becca!
I love the square and the round mixtures. So happy for spring here up north ;) tulips…:) maybe more frost next week…love your floral card
Oh such a pretty, pretty card! And I love all the layers and the distressed edges. I never really distress as I too generally go for precise edges, but you may just have convinced me to have a play…!

Hi Becca, I noticed your distressed edges right away. They look nice. I love distressed edges but rarely do them…lol. Lately I am trying to do some different things also.
What a beautiful card love all the lays with the dies and the distressed edges, I don’t do distress enough. Karen I love your idea and would love to send you die cuts etc.Maybe you can reach out to Becca with your e-mail and she can give it to me.
Have a great weekend.Yvonne

Hey, Becca. This is very pretty. I love the button and the long tail bow.
Also, when I go to make a comment it used to remember who I was when I hit the first letter but I find that it is wanting all the information again. Can this be corrected?
Hi Becca, Just a lovely card. You layer die cuts that don’t match but go together so beautifully. If I can’t imagine the combinations, I can duplicate so thanks very much. I’ve been traveling and then email account got hacked so it has been a difficult tech week for me but I think all is well now. Thanks for a beautiful card to brighten my day.
Well Hello there what a lovely surprise!!!
I love this card so nice to see you distress some of your paper it gives a
beautiful aged look to the whole card with the filigree and the pretty
The button and bow just finish the look soooo feminine Pamxxxx
About sharing we share die cuts by cutting out and using white card stock
mainly as you can ink them, and charging a small amount to put back to
purchasing more paper .
If someone wants a certain die cut they can get it cut in their papers and
they are happy it does us all good to share good luck ladies happy weekend X
I love it! I think the distressing on the edges is perfect for this card!
Oh my goodness! This card is stunning! Wow!
Oh so pretty!!
Hey girl, thinking outside the box by distressing the edges of your card. Happy to hear that! I think it’s good for all of us to try new things once in awhile. Beautiful design!
Hi Becca. Very lovely. Fab bow and button. Love the die combo. And the distressing. All of it in fact!
Another gorgeous card from you Becca, and like the rest hre, I think it looks totally amazing, that you´ve distressed the edges, and noticed it right away. As usual you´ve made a wonderful card with all the different diecuts here. Soooo beautiful work once again dear friend.
Have a wonderful sunday now and lots of great fun.
Another beautiful card Becca. I rarely do any distressing becuses it distresses (stresses) me too much. I must admit it does look good though. I love all the different dies layered up. I must be more adventurous!! Hugs Christine xx
Such a pretty card Becca. Love the different layers and also the backing paper you have used
I do not care for distressed cards but yours looks much better than other that I have seen. I hope you have a great weekend to
Really pretty card Becca. I’m personally not a great fan of the distressed card look since I like clean lines. I prefer distressing with inking around the borders. Having said that, your card is very lovely!

Beautiful card, Becca, that really gives me the feeling of Spring!
Wonderful papers and dies you have used, and I like the distressed edges.
Hi Becca, This card is beautifully spring-like, lovely combination of die-cuts and I adore the floral background paper it is gorgeous.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Gorgeous as always, love all the layering you do on your cards. It adds so much to them, keep them coming you inspire me every time I see one of your creations!
Stunning card, love all the die layers, so beautiful. I do that all the time go to do something and end up doing something else lol! That’s why I never have anything done that should be done!!!
Love & hUgs

I wish I could layer all these Spellbinder Dies. I get what dies I have in my collection and none of them seem to go together in an elegant way that yours do. Maybe I will win the lottery and be able to add to my dies. I am waiting for some of your dies I have ordered to be delivered. Can’t wait.
Thanks again for the beautiful card. I am still so excited that I won one.
Beautiful card and so Spring. I use a lot of die combinations when making my cards. Have a Blessed day.
So sweet and fresh!!! Love bit he the dies and the words! You are the best!!!!!
VERY NICE BECCA! Sometimes, I like to play around before getting to the project at hand too! LOL I think it HELPS the mojo to play though! ;) Have a BLESSED DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)
What a stunning card today, with the distressed edges. When I try that it looks like a crowd of mice have been trying to eat it!!!
I love the floral paper and the sentiment.
Wow, you’ve had a busy week and I’m just catching up. I love the lacey shabby chic look of this card! I am trying not to add to my wishlist this year, but see another die I MUST have on this. You’re such an enabler. : )
