True Gift

Hi there sweet blog friends, popping in to share a quick card.   I’ve been scarce for the last week, but I’m in the middle of some big home projects that have waited for over 10 months and can’t wait any longer.   I’m making headway but it was sooooo good to sit down and play for a minute in between all the changes.  I’m using a die template that I haven’t used before but the style is one that I’m loving lately because of the ease it brings and to me it lets the die speak for itself.  I created my card base using Spellbinders™ Detailed Scallops and layer the base using Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics B and Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics A.  Then finally on top of that I put Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles.  


The sweet sentiment is from Quietfire Design and is called The Only True Gift.  The card just begged for pearls, so I gave in with abandon :-)

Stamps: Quietfire Design – The Only True Gift
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80 lb, Bazzill
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Detailed ScallopsSpellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics BSpellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics ASpellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles, Recollections Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon,

Thanks for stopping by!!  In addition to my house stuff, I’m working on some things I promised to show that I hope to have ready soon!

    Becca your creations are so beautiful! I was flipping through magazines at Barnes and Nobel today and saw the Peg Bow Maker prominently advertised! Congrats! I read you will soon be coming out with another CD. I’m looking forward to purchasing it to supplement the one that came when my hubby bought me the bow maker!ReplyCancel

    Such a beautiful card Becca. I have all these dies so I’ll be giving it a try.
    I tried your last one and now understand why Spellbinders are bringing out a magnetic plate – hope it comes to the UK soon. Thanks for all the inspiration you give us.

    I love this card as well as many others you’ve designed. I’m fairly new at card making and can’t figure our what you’ve done on the fold. How is the card held together? Both the front & back appear to have a scallop edge.
    I’m sure seasoned card makers know how it’s done but, as a newby I’m confused.ReplyCancel

    Dear Becca,
    What’s left to say that hasn’t been said many times before. Your talent is AMAZING and thank you, as always, for sharing it with us.

  • SondraMarch 26, 2013 - 10:50 pm

    Dear Becca, I just found your website and am so impressed with your work. It’s just beautiful. I especially love the elegant flourish style. You made a card a year or two ago, it was a vintage style and you said that you used a Spellbinders fleur de lis die – it was a round one. Would love to find that one, but I think it has been discontinued. I will be visiting your blog often.ReplyCancel

  • Linda EckerMarch 28, 2013 - 7:28 am

    Becca, your work is so lovely and always inspires me. I do miss your kits, though, and am hoping that the cancellation of the club will not be forever.
    Blessings, LindaReplyCancel
