Good morning sweet friends! I’ve been tinkering with the dies from the Romancing the Swirl Collection, so I reached for the lovely Flourished Square to make a shaped card and embellished it using Hemstitch Circles. If you are new here and wonder how to do that, I used the hinged technique outlined in this video —->HERE to get the front and back of the card. Basically, you cut two pieces – one with a hinge and glue together at the hinge. It’s so pretty to see the filigree through the front and the back. On this one, I didn’t want an aperture in the center because I wanted to be able to stamp my sentiment there. I’m using another new sentiment from Quietfire Design called Without Music.
Shaped Card Ensemble
I thought it would be cute to create an ensemble box to go along with the card. I simply cut an extra diecut from Flourished Square and made a score line from the corner point of the interior solid piece to the adjacent corner point and snipped diagonally through the corner. Then I made a lid (1-1/8″ deep) the size of scoreline square (2-3/4″). I draped my scored and cut die over the box top and glued it down!

Thanks so much for your good wishes. I’m continually reminded of the sweet friends I have, that visit me here. I so appreciate you! Oh, and you can’t imagine what’s going on in my mind after listening to Shauna Niequest – Present over Perfect. It was excellent, uplifting and thought provoking
read listen. The book would take me weeks to read but the Audible Book was only four and a half hours. If you are needing something to get you centered and focused, I highly recommend.
How lovely this is and the perfect sentiment too!
Good morning Becca, I couldn’t agree more Jennie it’s absolutely gorgeous!!!
Have a good one!!!
Just perfect and the right touch not overdone which could happen to all of us.
Very good to see you back.
God bless have a great day.
I love the way you have used the die to decorate the lid of the box. I’d never thought of using it like that! Love the sentiment too. I’d be lost without my music especially when crafting. Happy Monday Becca.
What a beautiful matching set Becca. This die set is so beautiful and the sentiment complements it so well. Christine
Hi Becca just thought I would check in so glad I did
lovely creations as always .
Great idea to use the die for the lid trust you to come
up with that, the sentiment and the colours just finish it off perfectly !
Glad you got home safe and enjoyed your book Hugs Pam XXX
The whole ensemble is beautiful. I have made boxes before to hold cards – it just adds another dimension of beauty to your lovely card. Perfect for my musician husband. Thanks and and glad you are well.
Just gorgeous as always love the card and box . Quinty girl
Your card is just lovely. I had watched your technique with the hinge a while back but I need to put it into practice one of these days. LOL…. I know what you mean about music… If you hear awe inspiring music it can encompass you with such a feeling of the Lords glory. Our church has such a wonderful musical group and without a doubt they are led by the Holy Spirit as you can just feel the room being filled with His presence. They say smell triggers the most memory response … I think hearing music is not far behind… Have a wonderful rest of the day… God bless…Denice with a “c”
Exquisite, love the colours also.
Simply gorgeous. Becca!
Lovely card design and matching petite box. So glad to see your designs on your blog again. I just can not express to you how much I have missed seeing your creations. Unable to get the link for the video to work. Wishing you a fantastic week. Bonjour mon ami.
Hi Becca. Another beautiful design and how clever using a circular die to finish a pretty box. Well done. I’m having cataract surgery tomorrow on my second eye and am so looking forward to be able to try some of your ideas out without struggling. LOL Jan
Such a beautiful card w/matching box, Becca! Love the soft colors you used. Have a great week!
Another wonderful design and message! So glad I already have the swirl design. Will need to buy the circle die and the words. Because, you are the music in creating wonderful dies and cards!!!
Have mercy, Becca. That is a gorgeous set!! The colors are beautiful, the flowers are beautiful, the whole set is just beautiful!
Another great way to use your dies. This one is so soft .& muted and elegant.
Thank you, Becca, for sharing your wonderful design!
BEAUTIFULLY DONE, Becca! LOVE this combo you’ve made! I “need” that Flourished Square Die! LOL I HAVE been eye-balling it for awhile! ;) I ALSO LOVE the sentiment you’ve used! It is BEAUTIFUL & OH SO TRUE for someone who LOOOOVES MUSIC!! ;)(Getting deep here: BUUUT, if God hadn’t created music for us, it would ALL be alright anyway! ;) )
These are lovely.
Good afternoon my dear SoBecca,
This truly another stunning card. I have yet to try a hinged card but will watch your tutorial one of these days when not too much is going on. Getting ready now for vacation for a month and may come back thru your neck of the woods. If I do, I will holler at ya’. So be ready for lunch treat some day after Labor Day, you just never know!!
For a card crafter who is also a musician, I don’t think this card could be more perfect! I watched the hinge technique again to bolster my confidence to give this a try since I love all the cards that are crafted this way.
Such a delight to have new cards to enjoy!
Love & blessings,
So beautifully done!
I love shaped cards and the color pink is my favorite so this card is so lovely. Awesome sentiment too!
Ohh what beautiful projects! I find your blog to be such a refreshing site to visit, with amazing projects!
Thank you for always sharing, absolutely love your work, your dies and your projects!
Another beauty Becca!
Gorgeous ensemble! Would make a great gift box for a small trinket.
One word: Beautiful!
