Cardmaking ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Butterflies - see full supply list at
Hello friends, I just wanted to let you know that I made it through my foot surgery with no problems, I’m so very thankful. My sweet mother is here waiting on me hand and foot – another thing I’m extremely grateful for.  I certainly didn’t want to miss Day of Friday Giving so I have a card to share – one of my favorites. This one features a tiny tag to personalize the card – that way I could have a whole card front that I didn’t obsure with a panel and a sentiment.

Walk Through on How to Make Card

1.  The card base is 5-1/2 x 7-1/2.

2.  On top of the base I added a layer created by washing with pink watercolor, on watercolor paper and stamping with a script stamp.

3.  On top of the watercolor wash layer I added Spellbinders Butterflies that I also washed with watercolor.

4.  The dimension is added by cutting an additional Spellbinders Butterflies layer (spray with spray adhesive, sprinkle glitter and add pearls).  Then snip each butterfly to free it, fold in half and adhere on top of each existing butterfly with a drop from your mini glue gun.

5.   Add ribbon, bow any tiny tag to personalize.

  • Christine SpringmanJuly 15, 2016 - 3:59 pm

    I love all the butterflies on your card. I love all flowers so it is hard to pick a favorite, I would say pansies as I love all the colors they come in and their happy faces. Hope you are back on your feet soon. Christine S.ReplyCancel

  • Carol TroJuly 15, 2016 - 4:01 pm

    Becca I will keep you in my prayers!! I hope that your surgery is successful & heals without infections!! You gave me eye candy when I needed it the most. I broke my left ankle 2 years ago, & your beautiful cards gave me hope. You touch so many people. Bless you!! Lot’s of Love & Prayers are sent your way!!ReplyCancel

  • DebraJuly 15, 2016 - 4:04 pm

    Beautiful card Becca! Hope you take it easy as you recover and try to enjoy relaxing and being taken care of.
    My favorite flower is the sweet pea – my mom used to grow them when I was little and I always remember their incredible fragrance. Roses are beautiful but the colorful sweet pea and heady fragrance are the best. Unfortunately, not many florists carry sweet peas. What is your favorite flower?ReplyCancel

  • DebraK in FLJuly 15, 2016 - 4:09 pm

    Love this card! The color is gorgeous, too.
    I’m going to have to bring it up again on my laptop to see the detail better as my phone isn’t letting me enlarge the picture.
    My fav flower has to be peonies, or lilacs, neither which are available to grow in west central FL. Hydrangeas are gorgeous, too. I was just up in WI for a family function and they were in bloom everywhere! Big, gorgeous white blooms. So classy!ReplyCancel

  • Karen M. RothJuly 15, 2016 - 4:17 pm

    I am so very glad that the surgery went well. Praying for a speedy recovery {{hugz}} Thank you Becca’s Mom for taking care of our dear friend {{hugz}}

    I am so in love with these butterflies! I have always loved the bows. Noone makes bows as great as you, Becca!

    My favorite flower is the Lilac. But I have a close 2nd and that is Carnations.

    Well, this week I got great news, not so bad news and some not sure how to process news… The bone tumor in my left femoral head has not grown at all. My female issue has resolved. Today’s news, the Mass on my Left Adrenal Gland has grown…. I am also in too much pain. So I am asking for prayers myself today please.ReplyCancel

  • Carol H.July 15, 2016 - 4:19 pm

    So glad your foot surgery went well and that you’re on the mend. I remember this card from your boo post when you first made it. One of my faves!! It’s super hard to say which flower is my favorite. Petunias are definitely at the top of my favorites! Wishing you a speedy recovery!ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingJuly 15, 2016 - 4:19 pm

    So glad to know you are on the mend. HOpe you are keeping the pain manageable! And good to know your mom is there for physical and moral support – aren’t moms the best? ::waving to your mom, hi there!::

    My favorite flower is the iris – so stately and yet so delicate – and so many of them have that innate sparkle to them. I just adore them – such a sweet, and subtle fragrance as well. I have a couple varieties that are re-bloomers, too. So delightful!

    Continue to recover, my sweet friend. Blessings – JoniReplyCancel

  • Marcie SmithJuly 15, 2016 - 4:22 pm

    Beautiful Card Becca. Glad to hear your foot surgery went well, but I hope you are taking it easy so the recovery will go as well. You are so lucky to have such a great Mom.

    I’m thankful your surgery went well, Becca. I hope your recovery continues to go smoothly.
    This is such a sweet card – I’ll bet it really shimmers in real life.
    If I must pick a favorite, I have to say the sweet smelling gardenia is my favorite. But I have a whole folder on Pinterest of favorite flowers, so it’s difficult to commit to just one :-)ReplyCancel

  • JennieJuly 15, 2016 - 4:51 pm

    My favourite flower is the poppy – it symbolises Remembrance here in the UK – it is the symbol we associate with the Great War of 1914-18 and is the symbol of Armistice Day – celebrated on November 11th each year – and that happens to be my birthday – and for me represents Peace; paper poppies are sold each year to raise funds for a charity which offer support to ex-forces personnel & their families if needed. It was with great pride that the school I used to work at always sold ALL their allocated poppies – keeping our young people involved in recognising what soldiers, sailors and flying crew do to keep us safe.ReplyCancel

  • Melissa BJuly 15, 2016 - 4:51 pm

    Glad your surgery went well. How blessed you are to be able to have your Mom be able to help you out!
    I think my favorite flower is the carnation, especially the mallee ones. They smell so sweet, it is a joy to grow them outside my door and be able to smell them often!ReplyCancel

    I love flowers! All kinds of flowers. Some of my favorite bouquets are the ones my hubby picks for me while on his walk. But I have a large iris garden and they were so beautiful this year. Now the lilies are in bloom and they are so, so pretty. Guess to be honest, it is whatever is currently in bloom. Love your card with all the butterflies. Outstanding! Glad to hear you came through your surgery with flying colors and a bit envious that you still have your precious Mother with you. Mine passed away in 1972, so I’ve been an “orphan” a long time. Thankfully, I have sisters. Thanks for the change to win this gorgeous card.ReplyCancel

  • KathyJuly 15, 2016 - 5:09 pm

    Hi Becca. Firstly, I’m so glad your foot surgery went well and that you are in the safe hands of your mother. Oh how I miss my mam! Cherish every moment you have with her. Another beautiful card this week for a lucky winner. I have so many favourite flowers but probably the lily, or maybe freesias are at the top of the list. Take care – and don’t try to rush your recovery!! Best wishes

Tell your Mom hello for me and please let her know how precious you are to us here on your website! My favorite flower is the Rubrum Lily. And mine are just opening in my flower garden. Most of mine are the “Stargazer” variety. Oh, and I have some Samatra ones as well. There is also a white one out there that has not bloomed yet. I cut a couple of stems today to bring into my house. Loads of fragrance from these lovely flowers.ReplyCancel

    Tulips are my favourite flower. There are so many interesting varieties, but it it the joy of seeing them at the end of the cold winters here and knowing spring, warmth, and new hope is just around the corner. Tulips always make me smile and warm inside! ( also must be the Dutch girl in me….) .ReplyCancel

  • Rosie WaldtJuly 15, 2016 - 7:06 pm

    My favorite flower is the bearded iris, they just tell a story standing up so perky. Whenever I see one in a store I have to buy it, only thing is they don’t last very long. So glad your Mom can be there with you to help you, enjoy that cuz in no time we are hoping you will be on the mend. thank you for the lovely card with butterflies.ReplyCancel

    Such a cut card! Love the butterflies and that bow!
    I love pretty much all flowers and although I adore orchids, I think that fragrant flowers have to hit the top spot. Freesias, scented roses, lilac, sweet peas – I could go on and on…. :o)

  • ShaneanJuly 15, 2016 - 7:20 pm

  • Janice BrummettJuly 15, 2016 - 8:21 pm

    Very pretty card again today. Happy to hear surgery went well. Listen to your doctor and mother and stay off the foot! I have very a few favorite–just depends. If from my husband of 49 years, it must be roses. Yellow on our anniversary (that’s what I carried on our wedding day) and red roses the rest of the year. White Easter Lily to remind me Christ died for me and he arose! Gardenia for their sweet aroma. Petunias fill my garden this year and provide a delightful aroma. Tulips, iris, and peonies are a must have also. Guess I can’t decide which is my favorite! LOL!ReplyCancel

  • MichelleJuly 15, 2016 - 8:28 pm

    Wow, there is so many beautiful flowers and I love them all. God graced me with a gorgeous Hydrangea bush this year with all sorts of colors on it, blue, purple and pink. I am like a little kid going out in the morning to see which bud is opening and seeing the colors galore. So for today I would say a Hydrangea flower is my favorite. Very beautiful card Becca and here is to a speedy recovery and enjoy your time with your Mom, she has to be pretty special. HUGSReplyCancel

    The card is so cute. Love the butterflies. Glad that your surgery turned out well. Nothing is nicer that a mom taking care of you. My favorite flower? Maybe the forget me nots that I forgot I planted. We have a a medium sized garden that is so full of perennials and annuals which makes it hard to choose just one.ReplyCancel

  • Linda WaltonJuly 15, 2016 - 10:22 pm

    Becca, I’m so relieved that your foot surgery went well.
    Your card is gorgeous as usual and that little tag is so cute!! You make the most beautiful bows I’ve ever seen.
    I would have to say my favorite flower is the rose…especially a true antique rose. They are not only beautiful, their fragrance is so heavenly that it’s intoxicating. Hydrangeas almost tie for my favorite because I love the soft pastel feminine colors.
    I wish you a speedy recovery,

    I love roses. While I appreciate many flowers, roses are my favorite. They happen to be the flower for my birth month – June.
    I never tire of their artistic and graceful beauty.

    I hope some flowers are smiling on you, dear one.

Lavender for the scent and daffodils as they are such a lovely burst of colour in the spring after a cold dull winter. I also like daisy like flowers. Oh and peonies.

    Speedy recovery wishes for you. This is a good time for you to relax, enjoy being pampered, catch up with necessary ‘soft’ chores and kick back and rest your mind. A favorite flower is the Magnolia because of it’s intoxicating gorgeous fragrance and it’s beautiful waxy petals. We don’t have many magnolia trees here but when I do come across one I just inhale the beauty and fragrance and memory.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Sooo glad to hear, that your surgery went well and you´re fast on recovery, and that you´re able to have your mum with you too is great.
    And yes we´re all sooo sad about what happened in France the other day and now also in Turkey yesterday, it´s really a tragedy and really scary, as it gets sooo close here now, so that probably makles one think even more about it.
    My favorit flower is many, but on the top list is the Freesia, the Rose and the Lilly of the valley. I just love these flowers a lot, but I must admit, I love mmost flowers and enjoy most of them in my big garden every year.
    Wonderful week-end to you sweet friend and all my best wishes for a speedy recovery.ReplyCancel

    Lovely card Becca! So glad to hear that your surgery went well. I love so may flowers that it’s hard to choose. So for today I will say peonies. Amazing to watch open, with all those layers, and the they smell divine! Loves, RuthieReplyCancel

    A beautiful card in my favorite color! It makes me smile with all the pretty butterflies! My favorite flower is the daisy. They are so fresh and feel like a very happy flower to me.

    So glad your foot surgery went well and you ate home recovering with your Mother’s help. My hubby and I returned home from Minnesota late last night. It feels so good to be home after spending 27 days in Minnesota while he recovered from his open heart surgery. We are so thankful for the doctors and staff of Mayo Clinic in Rochester for everything. Hubby spent a long 12 days in the hospital due to complications but he’s doing much better. I know he’ll heal faster now that we are home again. God is so good and we are thankful for all the prayers. Have a wonderful day!ReplyCancel

    Becca, your bow is fabulous. Have got to start making more again as I have your gavulous bowmaker.
    My favorite flower is the hibiscus! So tropical, reminds me of Hawaii, even though I have never been there.

    Of all the questions you could ask me, lol! Naming one flower as my favorite is not happening. I like flowers, too much. Whether, it’s roses or daisies, violets or orchids, geraniums, etc. They all make my heart patter! Glad your doing better and have help. This card is just lovely!ReplyCancel

  • Sara AlfordJuly 18, 2016 - 9:26 am

    Hi Becca, Sweet, sweet, sweet tedium. Love the butterflies and torn paper. My favorite flower has to be a yellow rose, which represents the State in which I grew up. Texas! And I miss it every day as that is where my family is.
    Becca, I wish you many days of healing. I, myself, survived two foot surgeries on my toes. So happy I did it as I can now wear reasonable and pretty shoes. I wish you no pain! Hugs, SaraReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    So glad your surgery went well. You are very blessed to have your mother there to take care of you. Hope you tell her how special & beautiful she is to take care of you.
    My favorite flowers are carnations & Dahlias. My grandmother grew the most beautiful large Dahlias in her flower garden & they always remind me of her.
    Have a lovely week. Take care xoxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I’ve been out of the country for 2 1/2 weeks with no Internet connection but returned to my blog routine to find good news and bad–so sorry you needed foot surgery because I hear it is painful and takes long to recover. Bless you mom and know you appreciate her help. Good news was your butterfly cards–one of the best yet and has your style written all over it. Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing and be up and about soon. At least the surgeon didn’t remove a bit or your creative talent. BarbaraReplyCancel

    I am grateful for a roof over my head, food on the table, a loving family, and relatively good health. But the thing I am most grateful for is knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as my savior who provides me with all things.ReplyCancel
