Good morning sweet friends, I thought I’d share a quick card and post with you as I get ready for holiday events. Normally I reach for lighter colors but I love using kraft and added in a pop of black. The November releases for JustRite Papercraft include men and womens wear, shoes and habadashery. I plucked a nice frame and small saying from the Fashion Vintage Labels Six set to say You’ve Got Style. I layered it up using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles, Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and Spellbinders Floral Ovals – I’ll just bet you have a couple of these in your stash :-)
I’m keeping it short today as I know you probably have pies in the oven and loved ones walking through the door. Anytime is an occasion for sharing whether you are in the US or abroad but in keeping with the holiday season, I wish you the best as we give thanks for all the blessings in our lives!
Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 7-1/2? tall by 5-1/2? wide (or see how to make that size with the Hinge Technique HERE) , design paper matting layer cut to 6-3/4″ x 5-1/4″, foam tape, die cut layers using Timeless Rectangles (cut apart to use as a border), foam tape, matting layer from black cut to 6-3/4″ x 3-3/4″, design paper layer cut to 6-3/4″ x 3-5/8″, die cut layer using Decorative Labels Eight, foam tape, die cut layer using kraft paper and duplicate layer in black with middle of oval removed. As always, cut everything first then stack. Position ribbon, bling and bow on correct layer, admire, then glue!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll see you soon!!
I love this! So elegant and although it’s dark colors, it’s very lovely!
Gorgeous. I love the black and kraft together and all the lovely layered die cuts. Becca, you definitely have style!
I love all cards. So beautiful. And I also like the Kraft paper.
I do have a question: how do you sort and find “your stash”?
I see something on your card I like then when I am shopping I
can’t remember if I have that Spellbinder. I don’t have one of
those I Phones or SmartPhones that some of my friends use
to keep track of their “stash” Thanks again.
Another lovely creation – if only I had half the style you have!
Blue is my favorite color so naturally i adore this card.
The navy and kraft are just beautiful together Becca!
Love these colors! WoW!
What a snazzy card! It’s just terrific in every sense. TFS.
Wishing my American neighbours a Happy Thanksgiving from me in Montreal. In Canada we “officially” gave thanks back in October. Guess when you get right down to it, every day is a pretty good day to count our blessings. Enjoy!
Lovely, dramatic card! Love seeing older favorite dies circulating back into play. Beautiful!!
Another stunner here today Becca. It is absolutely gorgeous work hun, and I so love this one. Really beautiful work as usual.
You are right about having some in our stash! I have almost 3 Art Bin boxes full so not too many I don’t have ~ however, when I see one u use that I don’t have,, just have to go and order it. LOL
Love the kraft with the midnight blue ~ wonderful combination. TFS.
Becca, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family! I look so forward to getting your email blog every day you send one!
Absolutely Gorgeous!!!! This is Perfect for my Five Daughters.
Thank You soooo much for taking the time to not only create it – but
posting it for us at this time
Praying for you and your health, please be careful
Joyce Anderson….still Struggling with the Gilded Gate Card—oy!
I really love this combination of Black and Kraft absolutely beautiful!
It will be a while before I am the owner of these stamps… though……. I do have the Dies, so I can prepare for when the Christmas season is over, and all the presents have been bought!
Until then I will keep your designs in mind as they are inspiring Becca!

I like the black Becca. Outside your box but it worked beautifully.
Beautiful, such a lovely elegant look to it with the black and the gems! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I love this card, it is so pretty. I love how you used the rectangle paper between the dies, different but is so pretty. I have all 3 of these dies, so I see a copy of your card coming up for someone special. thanks
Such a beautiful card as always, you really are amazing and have such inspirational ideas, thank you so much.
I have just heard on the news here in the UK that storms are forecast for the USA tomorrow, please stay safe. Do have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
This is amazing!
The dark color adds a rich and elegant feel to this card. Great choice!
