Meet Emmeline

Happy Friday sweet friends.  I’m smiling today because I have a card to share.  It was actually the inspiration for the Emmeline die.  It’s a long journey from inspiration to actual die but somewhere in my mind I’m already making cards and gifts with the ideas in my head when designing.  There’s no if’s ands or buts about it, I’m a lace addict.  I love it all, vintage, embroidered, bobbin, tatted –  My recent Venise Lace dies, are simply meant to mimic the feel of lace, in paper, and I was tickled to create this with the airy open feel and the scalloped floral background.

 Today I crafted a shaped card that is joined together by the hinge technique I demoed —-> here.  I framed the die using Hemstitch Rectangles – another fiber technique that renders square openings  in linens by pulling threads and bunching selected threads together.   The front is decorated with Cinch and Go Flowers II and has the stylings of hemstitch around the leaves.

This is the kind of card that I really don’t want to hide any of the airy transparency so instead of putting a huge sentiment on the front, it was perfect to put a tiny sentiment on a tiny tag using Graceful Tiny Tags Dies and Stamp Set.  This is one of my tricks with a showcase card – I minimize anything that can cover the beauty of the dies while putting a little tag front and center.  Here are other samples to show you what I mean – HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

I embellished the background with pearls – big surpise :-) and the interior card has another hemstitch panel to write a small quote, sentiment or even put a picture.

    Hi, Becca,
    Is this card gorgeous, or what?! I love lace and you really captured the ethereal essence by choosing white to form the lace and leaving it open. Using just a whisper of color on the flowers and leaves brought them to life. Satin ribbon and pearls – the perfect touch. Your card brought beauty into my day but it also brought a feeling of peace. Thank you!
    Love & blessings, SandyReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    I am surely not surprised that the Emmeline die is sold out! I know I sound like a broken record with each new series of dies you come out with but this is totally exquisite, lacy and devine!! Wondering if you have done a tutorial for the new flowers or did you do them the same way as Cinch and Go No. 1? Is this the Friday giveaway card???
    Ann RobbinsReplyCancel

    • Becca FeekenJuly 10, 2017 - 11:31 am

      Hi there Ann, I did not do a tutorial for the flowers (partly because the ‘master flower makers’ are on the creative team and my attempts pale in comparison to their artful ways :-) But seriously, I don’t fuss with flowers – these are all done the same way as Cinch and Go No. 1. – the hole in the center is like training wheels for me. Perhaps I will do a new tutorial for all the sweeties here when I get caught up on some other tasks…ReplyCancel
