Grateful Heart

Good morning sweet blog friends,  happy weekend!  Tell me how can it already be the end of March?  I’m peeking in for a moment to share a card –  I went with a custom size because I wanted a tall, skinny card, this one measure 4.5″ x 7″.  I reached for one of my favorite new sets from JustRite Papercrafts called  Grateful Heart which was cut with Vintage Labels Two Custom DieI blew the dust off of my Copic markers to color in the focal image – I cut both flowers out and popped them up with foam dots for dimension.   I layered this on top of a panel cut with Spellbinders™ Gold Labels Four and backed with Spellbinders™ Fancy Lattice.  It was very simple to trim the lattice to fit the Labels Four shape!


Once put together, I embellished the intersections of the lattice with small pearls – just the visible intersections.  A quick bow and a pearl embellishment finish it all off.  A final tag cut using  Spellbinders™ Back to Basics Tags is a quick way to add a sentiment and an easy way to change the card later if I want to substitute a different sentiment ;-)

    Hi Becca,
    I’m not able to comment as often as I used to but I had to stop today and say how beautiful this card is. I especially love the ‘springy’ (lovely analogy Theresa) cutout detail behind the flowers, which are also beautiful and so expertly coloured. I adore Spellbinders, who wouldn’t, but I find cards made totally with them all the time become ‘same old, same old’. So when I spot a card with lots of crafting on it, It truly stands out in the crowd, and yours is just that card.
    Best wishes blogfriend. Linda (UK) xxxReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Another beautiful creation, but I think that lattice looks like “Fancy Lattice” not “Basic Lattice”ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.March 30, 2013 - 12:30 pm

    As always, such a lovely card. I’m glad you mentioned trimming the lattice, because my one time use of it, I was timid about trimming it, so used it full size, and my card was bigger than my usual! This is gorgeous, but…then we have come to expect gorgeous from our Becca. TFS & have a wonderful Happy Easter. Hugs & Blessings.ReplyCancel

  • Tanja S.March 31, 2013 - 12:09 am

    Lovely card Becca – somehow your rose and purple flower look as if they have curved leaves – it must be your amazing colouring as you don’t mention having done anything to emboss of shape them.
    Have a blessed Easter!ReplyCancel
