All About Love

Anniversary Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - The Future is Uncertain -
Hi there sweet friends!  The thing about Valentines Day cards is that I think we often make the card we’d love to receive . . . call me guilty.   No worries about that and even though pink and white, draped with flowers, lace and bows and handing it over to a man – works . . . today I wanted to do something different.  I wanted to make a Valentines Day card that would work just as well for an anniversary, and I wanted to work with something other then pink, white and red.   Recently I found lovelies from Quietfire Design in my mailbox and all the sentiments had to do with love,  just in time for Valentines Day!!   BUT, since these don’t say Valentines Day specifically, I do think they will work all year around and fit quite neatly into the ‘Anniversary’ and ‘In Love’ categories in my stash.  So here’s a card that could go for either using a sentiment called The Future is Uncertain.
Anniversary Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design - The Future is Uncertain -
I’m using the new Spellbinders Floral Affair, Spellbinders Reflection, and Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM.   I opted for silver and navy because every once in a while I have to give cream and gold a rest :-)

Stamps: Quietfire Design, The Future is Uncertain
Craft Paper
: Bazzill, The Fine Touch, Silver Poster Board, Coredinations
Ink: Clear Snap – Chianti
Accessories:  Spellbinders Floral Affair, Spellbinder Reflection, Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM,  Satin Ribbon, Prima Pearls, Recollection Pearls, clear embossing powder

Hope your day is spectacular!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you soon.

Question Parking Lot:
Several have asked which set the heart on the bow came from – it’s the smallest in the Spellbinders Floral Affair set :-)

    Beautiful card as always! Navy is my favorite color and it goes so well with silver. Where did the little heart come from that’s on the ribbon?ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.January 30, 2015 - 6:53 pm

    As always, it just is so awesome. Love the colors and that gleaming silver against the dark blue. Loving these new S/B – so intricate & filigreed..very Victorian and glamorous. That sentiment is so pretty and would be versatile for many occasions. TFS & Hugs. Hope your New Year has gotten off to a good start, and the rest of it will be fabulous for you.ReplyCancel

    I love this – but then, I’m a tad prejudiced – that’s my signature line that Suzanne turned into rubber, and I love how gorgeous it turned out. I like the silver with navy – have done that with sympathy cards, but hadn’t put it together like this for a guy card for Valentine’s Day. It’s really beautiful, Becca – thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Robyn JosephsJanuary 30, 2015 - 10:01 pm

  • treenJanuary 30, 2015 - 10:01 pm

    hello Becca, I have just recently found your work and I really love it. this card is so so lovely. I have a question. could you please tell me what the red heart is and what it is made of (i’m talking about the small heart with the 3 pearls on it) I can see those hearts embellishing a lot of my cards. you have really inspired me. thank you so much for sharing your work. , love, treenReplyCancel

  • Leslie ScholesJanuary 30, 2015 - 10:59 pm

  • NANCY PENCEJanuary 31, 2015 - 9:36 am

    Becca, this card is pure elegance. But I’m wondering, as Treen did in an earlier post, about the mauve heart that adorns the bow on the card. I did not recognize it in your product list, and am curious as to where it came from and what it is called???ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, this card is so beautiful. I have my birthday on the 13th February. Then valentines day , then our wedding anniversary on the 29th February, so we celebrate it on the 28th this year. So you have inspired me as usual to make a different card for my hubby this year, was thinking of the normal red but have changed my mind to the lovely blue. Thanks so much for all your inspiration. God bless you.

    Lots of love
