Hello Friend

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Silhouette - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Good morning friends, fresh air, outside, breathing it in!  I’m up from the craft table today and away, so today’s post is short.  Always in need of a “Friend” card in my stash, today I’m sharing an all die cut card, no stamps, no coloring.  Sometimes I think that makes for a quick assembly :-)  The Silhouette is so very classic and is smack dab in the middle of my style and is surely a good choice for a girly card.

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Silhouette - www.amazingpapergrace.com
I started out with a 6″ x 6″ card base and added a vintage musical paper that is matted with kraft colored paper.  On top of that I added Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles in black and another circle on top with pink striped digital paper.  I followed that with the laurel leaves from Spellbinders Royal Medallions also cut in kraft colored paper.   The pretty detail of the oval from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals is a great base to show off my cameo cut with Spellbinders Silhouette.  I finished up with a hand cut banner, pointed on the ends and added Spellbinders Celebration Two.

Today is a change of pace for me with colors.  Aww yep, pink got worked in but I wanted to pull out some black cardstock and give it a go.  I love the way colors pop with a black backdrop.


Rubber Stamps: None
Craft Paper: Beckett Cambric Linen Cover – Black, EKS – Retired Acorn, Digital Papers from Iralamija’s Etsy Shop
Ink:  None
Accessories:  Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles, Spellbinders Royal Medallions, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, Spellbinders Silhouette, Spellbinders Celebration Two, Silk Ribbon, Buttonpost-header-bottomHave a stellar weekend!  I’ll see you soon!!

    Beautiful card! You make me think that I should put together
    some girlfriend cards to have on hand.
    Breath deeply while your outside, I live in central WA and our visibility is down to 1/2 mile due to smoke from all the fires, we are heading to our 2nd week of unhealthy air quality, what I wouldn’t give to be somewhere with fresh air, blue skies and a nice walk out doors!!!
    Have a great weekend!ReplyCancel

      Stay safe…I know it is bad there. We are west of Portland and our air is really sucky today. We’ve had some haze lately but really bad today. I love your area…praying for you and your firefighters.

  • MaryannAugust 22, 2015 - 1:36 pm

    I can only agree, we always need friendscard, and yours here today are amazing as usual. Love the unusual colors you´ve used, and I´ve always liked silouettes very much, so that is also a big bonus on thiis one here. Everything looks amazing and sooo beautiful put together.ReplyCancel

  • marylouhAugust 22, 2015 - 1:58 pm

    The card is beautiful.
    I love silhouettes. the muted color combination is so pretty.
    No stamping does not take away from the grandeur of this card.
    thanks for sharing a wonderful care.ReplyCancel

  • Joni StonekingAugust 22, 2015 - 2:05 pm

    Holy moly, that is a stunning card, Ms. Becca! I love the black, tan, and pink together. Wow! I have the silhouette, and haven’t used it yet. Now I may have to play with it a bit. I’m thinking wedge wood look and maybe using dark blue as you have the black. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Barbara TranquillaAugust 22, 2015 - 2:19 pm

    Hi Becca, Wonderful look with colors that surprisingly work. Everything you do works. Another delight. Thank you. BarbaraReplyCancel

  • Yvonne NicholsonAugust 22, 2015 - 2:23 pm

    Hi Becca,
    What a lovely card and color combo would not think of using blk. with kraft but like it. I have a silhouette die cut not spellbinders this would be a good way to use it. Enjoy the weekend.ReplyCancel

  • Vicky SchmidtAugust 22, 2015 - 2:24 pm

    Becca, even with just die cuts,
    you manage to make this very elegant.ReplyCancel

  • ANN ROBBINSAugust 22, 2015 - 2:28 pm

    Another really beautiful card Becca. I often do cards with just dies and it works well. There are so many gorgeous dies out there which are longing to be used!!

    A really magnificent card Becca and so very elegant. I think I would have to frame it – how could anyone dispatch it to a drawer or a box? Perish the thought!
    I just love how you bring out the beauty in everything you touch, you are such a gift to your followers. God bless you always.ReplyCancel

  • Pam TASAugust 22, 2015 - 6:33 pm

    card I must say I love it !
    The colours are so different YOU dear friend can get anything to work .
    Enjoy your time out in the fresh air !

  • Sandy ArtmanAugust 23, 2015 - 2:29 am

    Hi, Becca,
    I love the combination of black and brown/tan. I would have expected the silhouette to be black. Challenging conventionality is the exciting part of creativity and you do it so beautifully!
    Love and blessings,
