Faith is Knowing

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using New 2014 Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace and Quietfire Design - When You Get to the End Good morning friends.  I’m really kind of tickled to show you my next project that’s going in the mail today.  We’re going through a family trial that is begging discouragement but I’m glad to report that we’ve aligned ourselves with the right soldiers where hope and faith prevail.  I’m helping my daughter, a strong and resilient young woman, who is steadfast in faith and has a determination that has taught me much the last several months.   We text and talk daily to keep the encouragement floating above our heads so I wanted to send on a framed saying that she can put on her desk to remind her that she is not alone.  I made her framed art with this When You Get to the End saying from Quietfire Design several years ago that is proudly displayed on her wall, but I wanted this to be close at hand.  To me it’s like pulling a tool out of my tool box – so appropriate for the occasion and it will be sure to lift her up.
Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using New 2014 Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace and Quietfire Design - When You Get to the End

The die template I’m using today is Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace, embellished with the flourish from Spellbinders Outrageous Butterfly.  Below I‘m showing you the back of the card.  It was constructed by cutting two of the large dies and scoring the backside of one die so that it will create a hinge for the card to open :-)

    I am not very good at blogging but so glad I found yours. May God richly bless you and your family.

    Good morning Becca,
    What a beautiful card/frame you have made for us yet again today. I hope that these dies are going to find their way across to Scotland as this must be the most beautiful of all that has been made to date. I just love this die as it is so elegant and can’t fail to make any card that is made truly beautiful. Please don’t think i’m being rude or cheeky as you do make absolutely wonderful inspirational pieces, but this die is in a league own. I think that even the beginner could make a beautiful card with this die, which gives all us normal ordinary people a glimpse of hope at turning out a presentable piece at the end of the process.
    Love and crafty hugs
