So Thankful

Hey there!!  Thanks so much for the sweet comments on the Bow Collar Tutorial.  It was so fun to put that together and after I had the video done yesterday I went back and actually made the dummy card I was working with into a real card. :-)  So again you get to see a pretty little bow with a collar and indeed it’s the one I tied yesterday.   I dived in my stash for my very favorite Spellbinders Classic Lace Border Grand to create a frame.  I seated the Collar Bow inside the frame and added a sentiment from this month’s Our Daily Bread Designs release.  The set I’m using is called God Loves You.  I simply split the sentiment in two using my stamp positioner so that it was short enough to fit on my Petite Oval. 

To finish up I used the Lotus Borderabilites for the smart edge that goes around the card.  Pearls and a final fluff of the bow complete the card.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – God Loves You
Paper:  White Cardstock, K & Co
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk Ink – Rouge
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Classic Lace Border Grand, Spellbinders™ Lotus Borderabilties Petite, Spellbinders™ Petite Ovals LG, May Arts Ribbon, Pearls


Big hugs to you!!  See you soon!

    Oh my, this is just awesome Becca. I really loved yesterdays tutorial, but I also sure love todays card, and I´just have to give this collarbow a try, so now I simply have to make a card, where I can make one of these. But I also really love this frame, you made here. It´s sooo gorgeous I just LOVE it.

  • CyndeeJune 8, 2010 - 10:45 am

    I LOVE how you used the Grand Lace Border and was hoping to read more in your post about how you made this into a frame. Did you just make separate cuts and miter them together? It’s beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • AnneJune 8, 2010 - 11:02 am

    The colours are perfect for the bow with collar.

    But then I just know you’re going to come back with another stunner in a different colourway :o)

    I have several sites I visit every day. Your site is the only one where you “consistently” produces a beautiful card “every time” you posts.

    Most people can produce great cards some of the time. You produce great cards EVERY TIME. Plus you find unique ways to use products we all have , but didn’t see the possibilities that you see. You are truly amazing !ReplyCancel

    I am guilty of staring (something mom said that I should never do) at your cards……I just have to understand how you put it all together… if I understand then I can do the same thing – ha! Thank you, Becca, for exposing all of us to endless possibilities with stamps and Spellbinders, and ribbon!ReplyCancel

  • Kathy RJune 8, 2010 - 5:55 pm

    Lovely again, a real beaut!! How did you do the layer frame underneath? Just curious on what you used to create that first layer.ReplyCancel

  • Carol RJune 8, 2010 - 6:00 pm

    So beautiful! I love cards that only have one pastel color along with white. They always look so elegant. And using the Spellbinder dies to add the cutout makes it look gorgeous. Fabulous bow!ReplyCancel

  • Judy CoveyJune 8, 2010 - 6:29 pm

    Thanks so much for sharing the video of the bow collar. I tried making one today with some very narrow ribbon and it definitely doesn’t have the same affect, plus I was gathering it on both sides, which it looks like you didn’t do. The card you posted today is gorgeous, like all your cards.ReplyCancel

    This card is absolutely gorgeous, so pretty and elegant! The bow is awesome, I will watch your tutorial when I have time! So sorry I have been absent from your blog lately. I have been visiting for quick peeks, just haven’t been leaving comments. I have been so busy, I hope you will forgive me. I haven’t even had much time to create and blog myself, and I miss it so much. Drop me an email sometime and we will get caught up.

    Gorgeous Card! Thanks for sharing! :D I am curious, I don’t believe you’ve ever mentioned, how do you store your finished cards? Alot of them have dimension and depth and I’d be afraid they would get smushed. I know i’ve seen cellophane sleeves that can be used to protect cards.ReplyCancel

  • Teri FrankJune 9, 2010 - 8:25 am

    Wow – lovin’ that frame made with the Classic Lace die – which is my favorite also….thanks for showing me a new way to use it!


  • Karen LinarezJune 9, 2010 - 8:15 pm

    This is another absolutely gorgeous card! I love that frame, I used that border punch also for my 25th anniversary invitations and it’s awesome. I never thought of making it into a frame yet, though; but then, in my defense ,I haven’t had it that long. You always give me such great inspiration. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Well you have amazed me again! I just discovered this site a few weeks ago and I am hooked!! Oh Becca, you are the best! The things I do when trying to be a better person are, help a friend, even when I don’t feel like it, volunteer for something, even if I’m busy, stop and chat with a disabled person if I’m out and about, the smile on their face is worth a million, just to mention a fewReplyCancel

  • MaryJune 11, 2010 - 5:08 am
