Elegant Celebrations

Card making ideas by Becca Feeken using *new* Heirloom Flourish One Die along with Spellbinders Labels Sixteen and Elegant Labels Four
Hi there blog friends!  Today I’m joining in on the JustRite Papercraft December new release Blog Hop.  I’m kind of excited because today they are showing one of my new dies and one of my new stamps sets.  My first card uses a nice flourish die called Heirloom Flourish Die One that I designed  and JustRite Papercraft is now carrying.  This is a small single die and it’s nice on your wallet too . . . I used it to embellish other dies in my stash for a ‘new look’ – you know what I mean :-)   It adds such an elegant touch to the clean classic Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four Spellbinders Labels Sixteen and Spellbinders Rose Creations I used in my card.

Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up:  Start out with a Green Card Base  6″ tall by 6″ wide, foam tape, kraft matting layer cut to design paper matting layer cut to 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″, design paper layer cut to 5-5/8″ x 5-5/8″, foam tape, die cut layers using Elegant Labels Four (cut a sliver out of middle to make panel 5-1/4″ tall). foam tape, die cut layer using Labels Sixteen, die cut layer using labels Heirloom Flourish Die One.  The three buds are made using Rose Creations.  As always, cut everything first then stack.  Position ribbon, pearls and bow on correct layer, admire, then glue!

For my second card I’m using Elegant Celebrations, it has a lovely border and wide one and two liner sentiments that fit in several dies as well as across the bottom of your card.  So many people ask me to point out samples they can use for Anniversary Cards – it’s the most requested card by my readers, so I created this set.  My 31st wedding anniversary would have been the day before yesterday so while I was making the sample I sure thought of what sweet things I could say.   I hope you’ll enjoy – you’d be pressed to find these sweet sentiments elsewhere – you can preview the new sets HERE.  For this card I reached for Spellbinders Curved Borders Two, Spellbinders Corner Flourish and Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One.

    Hello Becca!
    I hope all is well with you and yours !
    I have just managed to track down an advanced order of your Die ..my sons are buying me lots of crafty goodies for Christmas..I think I will tell them soon lol!
    You always manage to make me look through my stash… which is good!… I think I forget some of the older Dies, but its nice when you take a different slant on things, and show them in a different light.
    Your cards are always so beautiful Becca!

    Hi Becca,
    Beautiful cards – you’ve done it again. And it also answers my question about the size of the heirloom flourish – it will look good wherever you put it. I shall have to add this to my collection.

    Hi Becca. I love both of the cards and the sentiments are so sweet. The “Have a lovely day” one is going to become a firm favourite I think. Take care.ReplyCancel

    Oh Becca is there no end to your talent. I love both cards and the soft green colour on the first card is gorgeous. I saw your new dies in an internet shop the other day and I didn’t quite understand how they worked but now I have seen them “in action” I realise how useful and versatile they are not to mention how pretty too. I am collecting your dies slowly and will add to this to my ever growing wish list along with the rose die. Thank you for your inspiration. xxReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca. I just received Radiant Rectangles and Enhancing Elements Rectangles One. I was wondering if there was anywhere on your site where you show combinations of dies to layer. I know I can pore over every Crafts I Used section of your entry, but thought I could ask if there is a faster way to find out what layers well together. I know that I can cut a sample of every rectangle die I own and play with layering, but then I don’t know what to add to fill in the gaps. Is my question clear? Am I making any sense?
    Your crafty friend,
