We Need to Have a . . . Heart to Heart

Well, my designing took a turn and I went off on a tangent :-)   I was working on a tutorial when this card popped right into my mind – does that ever happen to you lol?  I love to use gold but this is a new combination for me, gold and brown!  What happened is I touched that corrugated gold paper I used on the background and wanted to use it right away.  Today I’m showing a new set of stamps by JustRite Stampers called Heart to Heart Borders.  It is elegance in it’s richest form so I thought the gold, the embossed fleur design and the golden corrugated paper were perfect.  This is layered up, but because it uses layers of die cuts — there is no other measuring!!

I used Spellbinders Grand Large Labels #5 to cut my card base and layered with the next smaller size, #4.   Then I created a medallion that consists of Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, a frame cut with Fleur de Lis Squares and Spellbinders Classic Squares SM.  I interlocked Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and lastly JustRite Custom Die – Nested Frames! I threaded my ribbon through the Fleur de Lis Square and added some gold pearls!!

    Oh, simply exquisite, Becca! How do you think of these things? No, these ideas don’t just pop into my head! I would love to have your creative mind, just for a day! Beautiful card; love the different textures, detailed shapes and dies, and the colors… very rich looking. Thank you for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • Linda wFebruary 23, 2011 - 3:03 pm

    Beautiful card Becca. Was this card base pieced like most of your cards are? Because you used a die to cut it I don’t see how it could be pieced. Can you cut a folded card with a die, cutting both front and back at the same time?

    stamping on…ReplyCancel

  • Chris BFebruary 23, 2011 - 3:08 pm

    Beautiful card Becca! I thought something was wrong with my reader when I couldn’t bring up the whole post. So glad it is fixed. Always look forward to your works of art.ReplyCancel

  • JanFebruary 23, 2011 - 3:25 pm

    I just wanted to say ‘Thank You’ for sharing all your lovely cards designs. I have a link through to your blog right at the top of my favourites list, and if I don’t do anything else each day, I just have to click on your link and see what lovely things you are sharing. You are just so generous and it can’t always be easy to be so upbeat and my heart goes out to you.

    I spent some time with my 80yr old Mum today and we had a go at your folded rose tutorial. She enjoyed it and thought it could look like a waterlily.

    Take good care of yourself and all my very best wishes to you from North Wales in the UK.

    Oh my goodness, how pretty, and it really is very regal! I love it. I always like gold or silver on cards, it just makes them so much fancier and more elegant. This is beautiful, and I like the way you curved the one die to tuck into the frame. That was very creative, and with that gold image on it, it’s so beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous card, Becca!ReplyCancel
