Mothers Hold their Children’s Hands

WRBF-3788-2012 Happy Monday sweet friends!  I hope your Easter was special – mine sure was!  Last week my mailbox was brimming with new stamps, so I wanted to show you one that especially touches my heart — it’s gorgeous!!  My sweet friend Suzanne, from Quietfire Design dropped this in the mail to me – with plenty of time to spare for Mothers Day.  I put a little card together with her stunning hand penned sentiment called Mothers hold their Childrens Hands.  It’s mounted on Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals LG and layered onto Spellbinders™ Floral Ovals.  My next layer is the filigree edged piece from Spellbinders™ Radiant Rectangles.  The card base is made using Spellbinders ™ Timeless Rectangles – you can see how I do this in this tutorial —>Filigree Hinged Card Tutorial.   WRBF-3785-2012I highlighted the sentiment with a sponge dauber and Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I leave the die seated in the die template while running the dauber around the edge – it leaves such nice muted color on the inside and the rim of the diecut forms a hard border.

Stamps: Quietfire Design – Mothers hold their Childrens Hands Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb Smooth Ink:Versafine Onyx Black, Victorian Velvet Distress Ink Accessories: Spellbinders ™ Timeless Rectangles,  Spellbinders™ Floral OvalsSpellbinders™ Radiant RectanglesSpellbinders™ Classic Ovals LG, Recollections Pearls, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Mulberry Flowers, Becca’s Bow Maker

Thanks for stopping by to see me today.  You’re all such a blessing!

    I have almost all of the dies you used here. All I can say is “WOW!!” This is a definitely beautiful card. Wish I still had my mom to make this for her.

  • Francie in MontrealApril 2, 2013 - 6:03 am

    The beauty that you squeeze out of pieces of paper & bits of ribbon with metal dies and rubber is nothing short of astonishing. This is one of my favourite sentiments from Quietfire and you have done a masterful job of showcasing it. I believe it tops the list of my favourite Becca cards.ReplyCancel

    Morning Becca, A truly beautiful card, love the die-cuts, adore the sentiment, and love the flowers. I visited your tutorial again to refresh my memory, I’m definitely going to try making this hinged card, it is truly stunning.
    I hope you had a lovely Easter, I’m still exhausted from all the preparations and Church Services and cleaning involved in my Church, but the Church was magnificent on Easter Day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xxReplyCancel
