Just Under the Wire

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design Always Kiss Me Goodnight and 2014 Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence
Hi there blog friends! I realized that in the new months of 2014 as we approach Valentines Day, I don’t think I have made more than one Valentines Card.  So, just before the big day I thought I would whip up a quick one.  My card today is an easy filigree card with a simple sentiment from Quietfire Design titled Always Kiss Me Goodnight. It need not be reserved for just Valentines Day, but for any day for your sweetie. I started out with a hinged filigree card base —>see my tutorial HERE, using Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles.  I layered (edited to add: I originally mislabeled this A2 Divine Eloquence, yikes, it is:…)  Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments on top and added my sentiment in the opening using Spellbinders Floral Ovals popped up on dimensional tape.

Easy peasy!  :-)

Rubber Stamps:  Quietfire Design – The Door was Marked You
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Natural White 80lb Cardstock,
Ink: Fresh Ink – Merlot, Versamark
Accessories: Spellbinders Timeless RectanglesSpellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments, Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Recollection Pearls, Seam Binding, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’ll see you soon!!

    Hi Becca,

    This card is beautiful (as usual)! You seem to be using different
    embellishments (like the large pearl. They add more beauty to
    the card. I’ll have to look up and see where I can get some of these
    to add to my stash. I remember you using a clear box to mail a card,
    but can you tell us what else you have used to mail the bulkier cards?

I LOVE it in every detail.ReplyCancel

  • MelindaFebruary 12, 2014 - 9:00 am

    Love this, Mz. B!! But, where is the flourish from that sits under the sentiment? It is not part of the set? Please? I would love to have that as it could go with anything!
    Live your dreams, Becca!

  • Lynne GFebruary 12, 2014 - 10:45 am

    Becca, Amazingly Papery Gracefulness, as always. I want to CASE this card, however, I can’t understand how you got the look of the beautiful cut out portion in which the oval sits. When I search Divine Eloquence to order it, it’s center isn’t as curvaceous as your cut out. How would we get that beautiful cut out?ReplyCancel

  • Barbara WilsonFebruary 12, 2014 - 10:47 am

    Amazing, beautiful card. And if you you should kiss the people you love goodnight.ReplyCancel

    Love the quote- that’s advice my grandmother gave me when I got married :)ReplyCancel

  • Carole HodginsFebruary 12, 2014 - 2:34 pm

    Stunning, stunning, stunning, I don’t quite understand how the centre piece seems to be just floating in mid air though. I have learned so much from such a generous teacher already, would it be greedy of me to ask you for more tuition on how the heck you did this.

    Hey Becca…this is sooo beautiful. I know you stated which dies you used, but I can’t make out the A2devine Eloquence one. It doesn’t seem to match what’s in your photo….Is it mislabeled in your post?

  • Laura PapercutsFebruary 13, 2014 - 11:57 am

    UPDATE: I got it….it’s Tranquil Moments die that’s layered on top. I went thru their catalogue. Man they sure have a ton of “need to have” dies… lol.


  • AliceFebruary 13, 2014 - 12:06 pm

    I just adore your filigree cards. I’ve tried this myself but mine don’t work out so good, I think maybe my card stock is too thick ‘cos I have trouble getting it to cut through the folded bit. Love the sentiment- who wouldn’t.

    Hi Becca,
    I love your cards, I know why you named your blog “Amazing’ Paper Grace, because your cards are amazing. I still can’t work out how you do the loopy bows, my DH made me a bow maker like yours and I still can’t work them out. I love waiting to see what card you will come up with next.
