I Dwell in Possibility

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - I Dwell in Possibility and Spellbinders Royal Medallions - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends!  I love a classic go-to card that doesn’t take too much fiddling but really has impact.  I tuck those ideas away in a folder and every time I need a quick wedding card, thank you card or just don’t have the time to brainstorm – I go to that folder.  Here’s a new one for my folder this year. The laurel wreath die is a fairly new die from the A Gilded Life Collection – Royal Medallions and it absolutely makes the card.  I layered it onto Spellbinders Heirloom Oval and love the play between the two dies – the staggered look draws your eye in.  (It would also look lovely on the die I used on my last card Spellbinders Oval Regalia).   The beautiful new quote from Quietfire Design called I Dwell in Possibility is a perfect fit inside the laurel leaves.  The bottom of the focal layer is cut with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One

Designers Tip:  The dimension in the laurel wreath is just begging to be shown.  After cutting it in gold, sponge on some brown ink and wipe some off – it’s a bit like antiquing and some will settle in the nooks and crannies to show off the beautiful deboss.  The card is 6″ x 6″

Stamps: Quietfire Design – I Dwell in Possibility
Craft Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb Smooth (Cover) – Natural White,  My Minds Eye  – Lost & Found, Two, Gold Poster Board – Hobby Lobby
Ink:  Fresh Ink – Chocolate, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
Dies:  A Gilded Life Collection – Royal Medallions, Spellbinders Heirloom OvalSpellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One,
Accessories:   Recollections Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Button

post-header-bottomUgh, that moment when you have a cold that keeps you sneezing about once every 30 seconds!  That’s life for me right now.  Hoping you have a wonderful day!  I’ll be back soon!

    This is a go to card, exactly. Wow the gold layer makes it and love the oval under. I have the oval and the square one and use them very often. Everytime I see a card with a die I don’t have, you force me to go and buy it!!LOL.
    Hope for healing your cold, not good to sneeze on these beautiful cards!

    Hello Becca,
    I would never have gone for a Laurel Wreath die, it just goes to show how wrong I am. This is stunning, and the tip about the brown ink is very useful. Thank you.
    Please keep your bugs to yourself over there, I had enough last Christmas!!! but I do hope you feel better soon.

    What a breakthrough idea to cut apart a die and layer the pieces. Now I realize that you have cut pieces in the past, however, I just understood it clearly. Thanks for your continued designs that inspire and teach !ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.June 21, 2015 - 9:31 pm

    Such a beautiful card! I love the dark blue and how the core of the paper is showing.

    The name and email fields are blank but I have “AutoFill” turned on so I just have to click that for it to fill in my information. It’s always worked this way for me. :)ReplyCancel
