Birthday Wishes to You

Happy Friday sweet friends!  What are your crafty plans for the weekend?  Or perhaps you’ll make us all jealous by heading to the beach or the mountains.  No beach for me — I have work to do this weekend….  Earlier this week I started a birthday card for a friend and I finished it off last night to post today.  It’s a simple shaped card using Spellbinders Labels Twenty Nine.  Ahem, I think this is the first time I’ve used that particular die template – and it was a sweet discovery – I’m not sure how I missed using it!  The filigree border I used is from Spellbinders Gilded Gate Two – I simply cut the gate four times and discarded the parts I didn’t need – the decorative top of the gate is stellar.  I framed the top of the card with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and topped it off with Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG for my sentiment.   The sentiment is from JustRite Papercrafts Birthday Vintage Labels Four.
So to recap the layers I used, I started with a cardbase cut using Labels Twenty Nine – largest size (#6), foam tape, cut four Gilded Gate Two and glue to Labels Twenty Nine #5,  foam tape, oval from Radiant Rectangles, foam tape Classic Ovals LG.  Ribbon and bow set on appropriate layers.

    I would only wish to get a birthday card as beautiful as this. Hint, hint – mine is coming soon July 9th. Last year I won your “words” stamp set on my birthday. Another reason you are so special. I have your A2 Filigree dies, newest stamps you came out with a few weeks ago and of course the Becca bowmaker. To say I am a fan, is kinda a laugh!!!!! Have a good weekend Becca.

    Becca, you really do showcase these dies to perfection! Such a lovely card for your friend.

    Awesome card!! You did a great job as usual. Keep them coming please I love to see how you put these all together. I have a question for you, where do you get all of your pretty things you add to your bows in the middle, you either have some type of rhinestone, flower or something else. I would love to be able to buy some of them!?ReplyCancel

  • Winona WiseJune 1, 2013 - 10:33 am

    I don’t understand the point of cards that cannot be mailed. How do you deliver this? I try to keep my cars flat for that reason, but I see many, many beautiful cards like yours with buttons and ribbons etc. What am I missing?ReplyCancel
