Birthday Greetings

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Cascading Hearts, Spellbinders Victorian Tassels,  Spellbinders Petite Pennants -
Good morning!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.  If you’re lucky enough to have marvelous spring weather where you are – savor it!  The outdoors is calling me too, in the mean time I have a birthday card to share today.  I’m keeping it short and sweet so I can get all my must do’s done and have outside time.WRBF-4662-2015
Made on a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ base, I layered cream and gold card stock and topped it with Spellbinders Cascading Hearts.  On the next layer I added Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles.  The top and bottom of the rectangle are embellished with Spellbinders Victorian Tassels – I used other pieces from the same set to make the laurel heart as well.  To finish up I stamped Birthday Greetings onto vellum and cut the ends using the ribbon tails pieces from  Spellbinders Petite Pennants.

Rubber Stamps:  Anna Griffin
Craft Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb – Natural White,  Gold Foil Card Stock (Hobby Lobby)
Ink:  Fresh Ink – Onyx
Accessories: Spellbinders Cascading Hearts, Spellbinders Victorian Tassels,  Spellbinders Petite Pennants , Recollection Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Button

Hugs sweet friends, I’ll be back soon!!

    Becca, your card is beatiful. I always love your creations and wait with anticipation for your next idea.
    Becca, I have a problem. I was absolutely in love one of your cards and I noticed in the list of what I would need to make a similar card that you use Neenah Classic Crest Natural White 80 lb smooth. Well, I found it online and ordered it. It came today and is just paper. Bummer. Is there something else I need to know? Could you take a picture of the end of a ream of paper/cardstock. Or is there a number that identifies it on your order form. I hope they’ll take it back. Sorry to be a pest. Thank you in advance for helping me. TerryReplyCancel

    Becca, I just wanted to stop and say, “hello” but, of course, I was enchanted, as usual, and had to spend some time scrolling through. You use gold as beautifully as you use those soft, pretty pinks, as in the previous card. Such a lovely home you have here on the web. Have a good day!ReplyCancel

  • Heidi StampsApril 26, 2015 - 5:00 pm
