How Beautifully Leaves Grow Old

Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design How Beautiful Leaves Grow Old and Spellbinders Oval Bliss and Sparkle
Good morning sweet friends.  I’ve been diligently producing Christmas cards left and right and I looked up for a moment to be mindful that the seasons seem to be flying by (except summer, summer lasts forever).  I don’t think I’ve savored a fall more delicious than the one we’re in right now.  Although the leaves aren’t changing here yet, the air is crisp and the sky seems bluer with frothy clouds that  tumble through the sky without the threat of rain.  Yep, it’s fall and today I’m sharing a sweet fall sentiment from Quietfire Design called How Beautifully Leaves Grow Old.  

Fall Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design How Beautiful Leaves Grow Old and Spellbinders Oval Bliss and Sparkle

I have to be honest folks, I’d be hard pressed to find a great orange in my stash.  But fall has browns and golds with the tips of leaves colored with a splash of purple or or yellow.  I’m sharing a card with an awesome pairing of  Spellbinders Oval Bliss and Spellbinders Sparkle topped with Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and embellished with Spellbinders Moroccan Accents.

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Start out with a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base.  (Card base is made with two pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″‘ paper scored and glued as in this Hinge Video.)
  2. Mat a 5-1/8″ x 6-3/4″ piece of cream cardstock with gold cardstock cut to 5-1/4″ x 7-1/4″
  3. Mat a 6-5/8″ x 4-1/2″ piece of design paper with gold cardstock cut to 4-5/8″ x 6-3/4″ adhere to previous layers with two layers of foam tape.
  4. Place ribbon and lace across card and two matted layers horizontally and tape on backside.  Adhere to card base with two layers of foam tape.
  5. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Oval Bliss and attach with two layers of foam tape.
  6. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Sparkle, adhere to card base, add two pearls.
  7. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and stamp sentiment, distress with Brushed Corduroy Ink.
  8. Trace around outside of oval with Krylon Gold Leafing Pen
  9. Adhere oval to card base using two layers of foam tape.
  10. Glue a bow embellished with flowers and leaves to the right side of oval
  11. Cut one corner with Spellbinders Moroccan Accents, adhere to card and add pearl.

Picture Perfect Christmas

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Picture Perfect and Holiday Sentiments - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hi there friends!  Take my word for it, you should ‘never’ say never!  I’ve been seeing cards with sequins everywhere and I simply shook my head unable to understand what anyone would see in them and here we go, today it was the perfect embellishment for my card.  It just needed a little sumpin’ sumpin’ and that did it.  My card today is a kind of novelty card. I looked at the Spellbinders Picture Perfect die template, loving how it feels like you are looking into a scene!  I decided to make a peek-a-boo kind of open aperature card.  It was tons of fun and again I used the red, white and kraft that I love.  You might just notice that I didn’t use any stamp!  Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments comes right in handy for a quick sentiment.

Mind you this isn’t the kind of card that you’re gonna write a book in but it will be a nice card to show off in the Christmas Card line up on your entry table.Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders  Picture Perfect and Holiday Sentiments - www.amazingpapergrace.com
I framed the card with diagonal candy stripe paper using  Spellbinders Grand Labels One and finished off with a red bird cut from Spellbinders Birds on a Wire

Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Start out with a 6″ square card base – line the inside of the card with design paper and add several red sequins.
  2. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Picture Perfect centered on the front of the card without the Labels One Shaped border.
  3. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Picture Perfect along with it’s companion Labels One Shaped die from kraft cardstock, adhere to center of card base.
  4. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Grand Labels One # 1 and #3, adhere to front of card with two layers of foam tape.
  5. Tie a bow, snip off tails, adhere to bottom left hand corner with a button and bells.
  6. Cut a strip 1″ x 3″ and cut notch out of end, adhere to card.
  7. Cut/emboss words from Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments, adhere to strip.
  8. Cut/emboss Spellbinders Birds of a Wire – adhere one bird to tree.
