Those Rare People

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design Friends are those Rare People and Spellbinders Victoria Accents -
Excuuuuuse me while I loosen my belt, holiday leftovers are the absolute best! Good morning friends, I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and are recuperating nicely from fun, friends, family and food.  So as we turn the corner and head into a new year, I’ve saved up some little surprises for you.  To start out, on New Years eve – some awesome blog candy,  so be sure to stop by!  In the meantime, a card to share today using a beautiful sentiment from Quietfire Design :-)  It’s embellished by setting it on a bed of victorian dies using Spellbinders Victoria Accents.  I used two of the motifs back to back and on top stacked on Spellbinders Majestic Circles and Spellbinders Standard Circles SM.

The background is embossed using Spellbinders Garden Lattice M-Bossibilities Folder, one of my favs.   I took two of the Victoria Accents corner to embellish the upper corners of the card – I love the elegant feel.   That’s it for me today :-)

Stamps: Quietfire Design – Friends are those Rare People
Craft Paper
: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – Smooth, Coredinations
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder
Accessories: Spellbinders Victoria AccentsSpellbinders Majestic CirclesSpellbinders Standard Circles SMSpellbinders Garden Lattice M-Bossibilities Folder, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Recollection Pearls,

Thank you so much for the well wishes during the holiday – I appreciate your encouragement.  I’m so looking forward to spending 2015 crafting with you all!

Question Parking Lot:
Vivace on Comment #27 asked if it would be possible for me to reply to comments.  I wanted to let you all know that hopefully with the blog redo I’m planning it will allow me to reply right beside your comment instead of at the end of all the comments – as it is right now people have trouble finding my reply.  I have found that most people don’t double back to read comments after they have left them but I promise once my redo is in place I’ll do better.   In the meantime, please join me on Instagram – I already reply to every comment there because instagram allows me to send the response directly to you!  I also reply to comments on Facebook and Pinterest.   Would love to talk to you all over there in the meantime :-)

    Hi Becca!
    Yet another awesome card! Love that embossed background! Have to put that on my list of must haves. You know what I would really love in 2015, Becca? Is to enjoy some feedback from you to the comments of your “secret admirers. That would be stellar. Maybe. Just a thought. I know you read the comments. I often enjoy reading the comments of your readers and see what they thing about your creations. I also look out for you blogs to follow in the comment sections. Take care and wish you the best for 2015. I am entering it with a sad heart but I must and will carry on. I am strong!ReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenDecember 29, 2014 - 1:17 am
