Seek Out the True


I have a quick card to share with you today.  I managed to get some of the new K & Co. paper, Madeline,  from my Michaels.  I seriously stalked the clerks in the store to see when they would be putting the paper out and I was so glad that it came in a couple of days ago.  To make the card I used Spellbinders Ric-Rac Scallop Pierceability.  For the main panel of the card I used the pierceability to cut each of the four sides, I then embossed on two of the sides and pierced two of the sides.  I was pleased with the shape I created . . .after I rounded the corners with a corner rounder it reminded me of the SU Top Note that I see so much these days. I added a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and Classic Ovals Large for the sentiment.

After hunting for some time, I realized I just didn’t have the right colored flower, so I took some eyelet lace, airbrushed it with the Copic Airbrush System then gathered it and added a button.  So easy! 

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Printworks
Paper:  K & Co. – Madeline, Bazzill
Ink:  Aged Mahoghany Distress Ink, Antique Linen Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink
Accessories:  Spellbinders Ric-Rac Pierceability, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large, Eyelet Lace, Ribbon, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch, Martha Stewart Branch Punch. pearls

 That’s all for now – I see a carpet cleaner in my very near future :-)

    Another beautiful card Becca. I love the colour combo and the new pierceability die looks so effective (I’ll have to check that out!!) – did it take very long to make the card and what size cards do you normally use?
    Thanks for all you give us.

    Wow just love this card, this is the first time I have commented on your cards, I live in the UK and we don’t get all the things you get over there, can I ask how did you make the sentiment please, was it a stamp or done on the computer, if it is the latter what font is it please. I must say before I go you are a very talented lady, one would love to aspire to your heights….. Mandy UKReplyCancel

    Beautiful! I also wanted to congratulations about the “Aspire” card that you recently made for your son. It is featured in an ad in my March/April copy of Today’s Creative Homearts magazine. It is on page 16 in the Spellbinder’s ad. Congrats!!!ReplyCancel

  • IrisMarch 6, 2009 - 6:37 pm

    Your cards refresh my heart Becca! What a beautiful way to display God’s beautiful Word! I would like to use your techniques in maybe
    an 8×10 size for framing. Maybe a little larger even. I tried a scrapbook 12×12 size, using only scripture which I printed on vellum, with different fonts. It just need something if you know what I mean.
    When I found your site I was thrilled! I knew God’s Word would look beautiful using scrapbook/card techniques. With the Spellbinders and C uttlebug, which I now own, because I was soooo inspired by you.
    Any ideas on how to fill up something bigger than a card and not have
    the main design be lost in the larger space.?! I want to display God’s Word throughout my house. The card size could be used in a grouping of pictures. I don’t have any scripture stamps yet, I’ve just been printing whatever scripture I like on vellum. I’m going to order some of the ODB stamps you use. It’s so hard to find Christian scrapbook/card supplies. Again thank you for inspiring and refreshing my heart. IRIS, Saved by Grace!!: )ReplyCancel
