Friends Forever

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (Always Be My Friend) and Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles, Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers -
Hello there!  I have a new card to share with classic dies from your stash.  I’m in the making mood and had a thought dancing around in my mind before sitting down to create so I thought I’d  share some muted soft tones – they seem to be my favorite.  I’m using a Quietfire Design sentiment – I love that you will always be my friend!  I’ve used this sentiment before but I don’t think that phrase can be said enough and I think it needs to be said out loud to let a friend know how you’re feeling.

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (Always Be My Friend) and Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles, Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers -
The 7-1/2 x 5-1/2 card base is layered with a panel covered with Design Paper that measures 6-3/4″ x 4-3/4 ” with the design paper just a tad smaller to give the white border.  Next, I layered two Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles so that they overlap in the center of the card.  Where the rectangles overlap I placed Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance then Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and embellished with the swirls from  Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers.  It’s a card where I wanted to keep much of the inner space open to see the lovely design paper, so I finished up with a bow, some mulberry flowers and an elegant pearl button.

    Hi Becca, A lovely mix of rectangles and ovals–past dies with your new flourish. Great combination but I had to see you working it first because I couldn’t visualize that combo. You go, girl, always beautiful creations. Love it when you do the thinking for me especially when those clever thoughts don’t spring from my imagination. Thanks. BarbaraReplyCancel

  • SaraMay 22, 2016 - 9:31 pm

    Oh my, Becca, that is so artistic with the pierced frames. I love the way they are suspended away from the background paper. Today I have been making cards with the ladies shoes and am having a ball. It seems that I can use up all of my DSP scraps and the toes of the shoe don’t even have to match to be stinkin’ cute. My sentiment reads: “when it comes to friends, you’re a shoe in!” I just received the pierced frames and cannot wait to try a card with them suspended as you have done. Also, I purchased the card creator and wonder if you have experimented with that. Have a beautiful week. Hugs,

    After trying your cards I want to keep them and not give them to anyone. They are just so beautiful and elegant. Do you make any masculine cards? I would love to see some of your work on masculine cards.
