Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven, Spellbinder Mediteranean Medallion and Spellbinders Create a Rose
Greetings friends….hallelujah, spring is coming!!  I love everything about spring and it makes me reach for the powdery light pastel colors of heavenly flowers.  Today I have a clean and simple card to share and I wanted to show off the gorgeous detail of a new embossing folder – Spellbinders Mediterranean Medallion.  It’s a card made using a new sentiment from the Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven set from JustRite Papercraft and doubles down for sympathy or for someone who is going through a hard time.  For the latter occasion, I send out many cards – probably more so than birthdays.  How about you?
I wanted a soft flowing look for my flower so I simply diecut using pink tissue paper and Spellbinders Create A Rose.   The finished rose was glued down to the top of my bow then I embellished the card front with a cameo button from my stash.
The embossing detail is so lovely and it would be a shame to cover it up!  What a struggle for me!  After that, I sat on my hands so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep adding.  Yes, it was very hard :-)

Rubber Stamps: JustRite Papercraft – Magnolia Vintage Labels Seven
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White 80 lb, PTI, Pink Tissue Paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories: Spellbinders Mediterranean Medallion, Spellbinders Create A RoseCameo Button, Paper Source Satin Ribbon, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Yay spring, get here soon!!  Hope you’re having a beautiful day wherever you are!

    great card – would cheer anyone up I reckon – yes spring has spring here – we’ve had no rain for a week now! with a sunny dry and warm weekend forecast – so in the garden lots as it needs some TLC before the weather reverts to type no doubt! Love the tissue rose – so delicate. I make more bday cards than anything else. Happy weekend all.ReplyCancel

    I can hardly wait until this embossing folder arrives. I ordered it as one of the many new items from Spellbinders. So glad you used this so that we can see what a PRO did with it. Just love it! The cameo really hits the spot and of course pink is my favorite color. Thanks Becca and have a wonderful weekend.
