Grand Handwritten Birthday Wishes

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments along with Spellbinders Regal Frame and A2 Tranquil Moments - more details at
Well hey, posts two days in a row!  I’m excited today to share new stamp sets from JustRite Papercraft and you’re gonna love the sweet handwriting style of the set we’re using today – it’s called Grand Handwritten Sentiments.  It has some unique sentiments and you know we’re always looking for sentiments that sound like us.  I think ‘How are You’ and ‘Miss You’ are my favs – I send that kind of note all the time but I crumbled and added a  Birthdays Card to the stash because I’m always in need.

Can I officially say that the purple slate color (at least that’s what I call it)  has found a way into my heart?  I don’t know the manufacturer but it’s a lovely vintage looking shade and worked for the romantic feel I was looking for.  This is a simple layered card with a 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base, matting layers of purple slate and cream followed by a digital paper which I enlarged with Photoshop.   Spellbinders Regal Frame adds a gracious and elegant layer that I threaded my bow through.  I stamped my sentiment and  finished off with the filigree piece from Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments and a couple of pearls.

    (Squeal) Gorgeous card, Becca! There is absolutely nothing that I don’t love about this card. And the bow…………ahhhhhh! I am thinking you folded several layers of the ribbon & then wrapped the middle piece around it?
    This just makes my day. Thank you so much for sharing it.ReplyCancel

    Lovely, lovely, lovely. Thanks so much for the tutorial on the flower – can’t wait to try it.

    Thanks also for the link to the DP from Etsy. Could this be also where you found the background paper for your previous design on Feb. 12 “with love and a winner”??

    Good afternoon Becca,
    i do like the softness of the colours in today’s piece of inspiration from you. The lovely plum is not too dark, just so soft and muted but goes really well with the ivory card. Your miniature work of art is so pretty and finished off so wonderfully with THAT bow……gorgeous bow Becca, looks like it came off a high class chocolate box. Thank you so much for continuing to inspire us with your endless and seemingly ceaseless amount of talent that you give so generously, i know that we are all so, so very grateful to you for that,
    love and crafty hugs from across the ocean

    Beautiful!! I just love it—another one of my favorites. If I could only make a bow like that I’d be in heaven!ReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSMarch 31, 2015 - 11:02 am

    Breathtaking! Lovely! I have a card to do for a friends 95th birthday – this should suffice!
    Becca, I think some people do not know about your bow maker. Best investment I ever made. With the CD that came with it, ANYONE can make BECCA BOWS!! Incredible. Are they still available? Everyone should have at least one LOL!!
    Hugs and Easter greetings,

  • Karen RatcliffeMarch 31, 2015 - 11:11 am

    Hi Becca
    You have the most beautiful and delicate looking cards. I love them! I think the hand written words on the card are great. I saw there is even a Digital Cut SVG File for these stamps. Could you tell me what is the best machine to get to use these digital files on?? I’m at a loss as to what to use! Thanks for your wonderful creations!
    Hugs, KarenReplyCancel

    Hello Becca
    Hoorah! I have these Dies, not the Sentiments though!
    I will enjoy trying to copy your work!
    Thank you for the inspiration Becca!
    Love MargReplyCancel

    I am always on the look out for just the right sentiment stamps and these hit it right on the money! They are bigger than normal which I have not found anywhere like these. I wish they would make more of the sentiments larger, such as for Daughter, Husband, Son, Friend and the like. Loved your tutorial too, on the boxes. Made about half dozen or so and am still working out the kinks in the collapsible side one. (I used Cordinations paper that cracked when scored and bent a few times…learning curve). Also much appreciated is the kind of paper you use…it means all the difference in a project. Thanks Becca for all the little tidbits along the way. There is so much more to papercrafting than what meets the eye.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, As we sometimes say in Australia (well, in a Crocodile Dundee movie anyway) “What a Bonza Card!!!” That means really, really lovely! But I’m especially loving that bow!! A tutorial?ReplyCancel

    Absolut gorgeou as always Becca, and so was yesterdays card as well, but unfortunately I could not see the You Tube yet, as I have only my Tablrt with me here to the US, so that will have to wait till we get back home late April. But at least I am able to see your wonderful cards on here, while we are over here.
    Have a wonderful day sweet lady and lots og great fun too, and take good care okay.ReplyCancel

    Your lovely creations are always inspiring and this card does not disappoint. I love the dies you used and the fabulous bows. The new sentiment stamps are something I will have to add to my collection. The size of the sentiments are awesome. Thanks for sharing your creativity.ReplyCancel

  • DesireeApril 1, 2015 - 1:25 am

    Gorgeous card as usual Becca and like everyone else who has posted I LOVE your bows. I have left several comments before asking if you could arrange to sell separately the video you made to go with the bowmaker as I have one already. Also, I live in England so it would cost a fortune in postage to buy the package. PLEASE post a comment in the parking lot!ReplyCancel

  • Patricia HowarthApril 1, 2015 - 2:27 am

    Morning Becca, A stunning card, very regal looking and purple is my favourite colour, so a definite ‘yes’ from me haha. I adore these grand sentiments, they are going to top of my ‘Wish List’.
    I must watch your CD again to remind myself how you have made this fabulous bow.
    Easter is one of my busiest times at Church, and Saturday is brass cleaning, and decorating of the Church, before the blessed Easter Day Service.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel
