Friends Forever

Friendship card making ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Imperial Square and Spellbinders Victorian Bow Corner -
Hi there friends!  Another friend card to share today.  This is more of a shabby style that I normally do, but that happens every now and again :-)  Sifting through my stash earlier this week I was looking through all my silhouette stamps and came upon another that I love with the kids of the bicycle.  Because I so love the paper behind, I decided to stamp on vellum so that just a hint of the paper is seen behind.

Friendship card making ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Imperial Square and Spellbinders Victorian Bow Corner -
This card is light on layers and and more heavy on embellishment – again, not wanting to cover up the paper.  I used Spellbinders Imperial Square, for the embellishment on top of the friends forever frame.  The bottom of my main panel is edged with Spellbinders Classic Scallops.   Finally I used Spellbinders Victorian Bow Corner to give a little bit of interest on the bottom.  How simple!

    Hi Becca, Wow, this is stunning, I adore the backing paper, and I have never thought to stamp onto vellum, it gives a lovely mystical feeling to the stamping. Stunning.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel
