Subtle Elegant Texture

by on February 5, 2013

Good morning blog friends!  I’m overwhelmed by your reaction to the box I last posted.  Many of you asked where the tutorial will be posted and I’m sure it will be on YouTube, so keep a look out.  Of course if you are subscribed, you’ll get a notification ;-)  In the meantime I have a card to share today and a short post.   My card base was made using Spellbinders™ 5 x 7 Matting Basics A  – I knew by using a template instead of manually cutting, the sides in reference to the bottom would be square – perfection!  My card is 4-7/8″ x 6-7/8″.    I created a small panel using Spellbinders™ M-Bossibilities™ Infinity (Side A) –  don’t you just love the subtle elegant texture it adds to a card without overwhelming?  I’ve always been an embossing folder fan but set them aside for a while for a fling with design paper.  They are definitely back in my heart :-)
I keep coming back to the new borders – I think I’m addicted – they add so much elegant flare and can be tucked anywhere.  I added Spellbinders™ A2 Bracket Borders One underneath my textured panel then added my lace and seam binding with bow on top.  Last, I added the sweet sentiment from Quietfire Design using the 2013 Valentines Day Stamp Set. 

Stamps: Quietfire Design – 2013 Valentines Day Stamp Set
Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White 80lb, Coredinations, K&Company

Thanks so much for being a part of my little crafty world!  I’ll be back soon!

Such a beautiful card Becca, love everything about it but my eye was specially caught by that beautiful bird image. I am guessing it is a Susan Winget one? Would you tell me where you got it??
Thank you!

I love every single card you make! Your talent amazes me! This card is so very pretty, especially since I love birds! What product line is the bird, or did you color it? Thank you for sharing with us!

Another beautiful creation today Becca. I particularly love the little bird and the bracket border at the bottom of the card. I assume you coloured the brid yourself, if so, you have done a wonderful job there.
Thank you again for inspiring us to have a go.

I adapted your red/white Christmas card to a Valentine’s day card – and I love how it turned out. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us.

Ooo, a total favorite!! LOVE the bird, the flourish, the texturing and layering, all gorgeous, gorgeous! Adore this card!!

I’m a huge fan of embossing folders, that’s why I design so many of them, actual Infinity side A is one. Embossed paper is so versatile and beautiful!

blessings to you today my friend

That is a beautiful card! How did you cut out the flourish at the top? It looks like part of it is hanging in mid-air?

Love, love , love this card. So beautiful.
I too want to know about the bird and the background behind it with the
writing,flourish and stamp on it. I read over and over the list of products
and couldn’t see anything on these two things, except a mention of
k & co.
Could you please tell us about the bird and its immediate background
on your next post?

Just when I think you have pulled every rabbit out of the hat, you pull out another beautiful card. I love the lace and seam binding on the bottom.
