Gift Box Ensemble and a Giveaway

Thank You Card and Gift Box Ensemble ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire DesigAn and Spellbinders Swirl Bliss -
“The best gifts come from the heart, not the store.”
Sarah Dessen

Don’t you just love that quote?  That’s why we make what we make, right?   Oh, hi there!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday and I hope you want a tutorial today because that’s exactly what I’ve got!   I’m sharing a little peek of an ensemble I created; I’m guest blogging over on the Spellbinders Blog today with full instructions for the card and the matching box ensemble.  We always need Thank You cards and this is one is a cinch with a beautifully flourished sentiment from Quietfire Design from the Thanks Cuddlers Set (a must have in our gifting tool box).   It’s all about gift giving and once you’re over there you’ll see how easy it is to make a  unique golden arches box that you can customize to match two colors for a wedding party, for a baby gift, or for any occasion you like.


Before you go, I have a giveaway going on today with these two precious Ballerina Dies from the A Gilded Life Collection with Spellbinders.  Leave a comment telling me the next occasion you want to make a card for!  Open to all, including international folks, I’ll pick a winner on May 28 and will post it on the blog.

    Love your gift Ensemble. Gorgous!ReplyCancel

  • AnnaMay 26, 2015 - 3:20 pm

    I have loads of birthday cards to make in the next few months. But a very special one for my sister in law Lynn. She will be 65. I do all sorts of cards for her.
    As she is legally blind I do large cards with black and whites so that I know that she can see them.
    I just love watching what you make each time I get an email as I have gained lots of inspiration from you. I love the ballet girls and can use them on card for Lynn so that her granddaughter can look at the card and explain what she sees.
    Many thanks BeccaReplyCancel

  • LeahMay 26, 2015 - 3:41 pm

    Hi Becca, I’m going to be making cards with about 15 ladies from my church this Friday night. Many of them have never made cards before so I think I’ll start them off by making a few CAS “Thinking of You” cards. The reason I’m choosing this sentiment is because it covers just about every occasion. Thanks for the giveaway Becca…..and the tutorial as well.ReplyCancel

  • Sonia StephensonMay 26, 2015 - 3:42 pm

    Hi Becca. I love this card and box, it’s absolutely stunning, as are all of your beautiful creations. It’s great to see a tutorial to go with it aswell :-) My next card to make is for my Father-In-Laws Birthday, then we have Fathers Day and I have lots of family and friends Birthdays to make cards for so am going to be busy – but I wouldn’t have it any other way! :-) Hugs xxxReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSMay 26, 2015 - 3:47 pm

    Hi Becca!
    Just finished an anniversary card for my beloved of 52 years (yesterday the May 25). Guess the next one will be for my handicapped daughter’s little boyfriend, also handicapped which will be the end of June. Then in July, I have my hubby’s birthday, August is nephew’s. So I am slowing down for the summer.
    I guess I cheated a little because I saw the tutorial on Facebook Spellbinder’s
    blog; figured it would be on here sometime today and I was right. I have all your new dies so guess I am ready but would rather have the ones you made. Thanks for the contest!! Hope I win!!!!!!! Could be an early birthday present for me July 9th.

While we now live in different states and I will miss celebrating together, I want to send her a birthday card and a card set that she can use to send “Thinking of You” cards to family and friends.

    Morning Becca, A very beautiful Thank You card.
    I am busily making my first mini Album for my new Great Granddaughter, Sophia Grace, she was 8 weeks last Sunday. I have loads of piccies that I take every week when I go to see her (today is my day, yay !!). I have made the cover and created the inside cover sheet and partway through doing my first page. I have never made one before and trying to follow the worksheet and video ‘to the letter’, and hopefully when I have finished I will have a better idea of techniques for future albums.
    Looking at your fabulous ‘giveaway’, this die set will be fabulous for Sophia Grace when she gets a little older, and I would love to win it.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel

    My next card will be for Fathers Day AND one for my daughter in law, who´s birthday is the next day too, and with such a big famuíly there´s always some thing to make for here ha ha ha.

  • Jane MacdougallMay 27, 2015 - 4:22 am

    Hi Becca
    What a beautifully elegant card. I am always inspired when I look at your cards especially when you use gold or teal or best of all both together.
    There is true beauty in simplicity !!
    Unfortunately the next cards I am making are sympathy cards and I personally don’t like cards that are sent saying ;To all the family;
    Grief is a very personal thing as I’m sure you’ll know so to send someone a personal card that they can read when they are feeling low is not only more practical, especially if not living in the family home any more, and certainly much more comforting Have a great day. Crafty hugs Jane xxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, That is so beautiful, nice simple looking card, gold on white always looks great together, and the dies you used are lovely, I love coming over here to see your creations, My next card I need to make is for my hubby, and then 4 for July’s B/days for my 2 brother one of them is turning 70 and 2 sisters one is turning 60, so they are special one’s to make for, and then a chance to win the die on my B/day, that would be awesome!! bless you heaps, Cheers Anna.ReplyCancel
