Please note:  The Giveaways are all closed.  Please scroll to the bottom for winner of Spellbinders Gift Certificate.

Good morning sweet friends.   I’m tickled to be participating in the Spellbinders November Inspirational Hop and several giveaways.  It just so happens that a collection I’ve designed is in the mix today and I’m so excited to share a little bit about the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection.  The collection features embellishments as well as five layering frames that can be used alone for a quick card front, they can be cut together with a hinge for a shaped card or they can be layered over each other for a sweet romantic feel and enchanting look.  I’m so blessed to be a die designer and very much design what comes from my heart as well as feedback that I get from this wonderful community.

If you are new visitor on my blog today, I hope you’ll subscribe :-)  I’m a long time card maker and on the blog – for inspiration –  I have a pretty large visual gallery of samples, sortable by die name (color, style, size and occasion) that I’ve been building for the past 10 years.   I typically make fancy custom cards with unique layering.  If you’ve one of my subscribers then you well know that I adore ensembles.  I got started in papercrafting because I wanted to make a card to match the gift or gift box I was giving.  Along that vein, today I’m using Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame  (my clear favorite) for a classic, elegant Christmas card and matching box ensemble.

The Card

One of things I’m loving about Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame is that it can be cut so many ways.   Today I wanted a deep frame so I layered up the largest diecut without the center pieces.  I stacked three dies with foam tape between them and laid in a background from a vintage dictionary.  I added a focal panel cut with Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles and stamped a sweet Quietfire Design sentiment in two colors.  For the finishing touch I fussy cut velvet petals and rolled them into flowers – I wanted to rich green and red to signal traditional holiday colors.

The Box

The cream box is a simple one with a hinged lid closure.  From Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame I scored 7/8″ and 2-3/8″ from each end.  This created a wrap.  The loops from the end of the diecut overlock each other (total coincidence) to complete the closure and box simply slides inside the wrap.  To finish it off, I added flowers!

    Love the card and the box above -I like what you did with the Bella Rose frame. I purchased this frame recently but haven’t created a card with it as yet! As for how many Christmas cards I created this year, my work was done in the summer months and I may have finished at least 6-8 new ones for a total of 160 cards. I usually create 20 of each for my craft shows and online. My selling season will be over shortly for Christmas cards and I’ll use some of them for own card list. This is the most wonderful time of the year isn’t it! Hugs DianneReplyCancel

  • Denice with a "c"November 20, 2017 - 1:02 pm

    Hi there Ms. Becca, I tell you what you never cease to amaze me. So many beautiful things just seem to pour from your soul. Love love love all your dies and continue to purchase as I can. As for my Christmas cards, I make anywhere between 50 and 75 cards each year and almost entirely from scratch (as the ol’ saying goes). I just love to make pretty things and always have. Then to hear people say things like they never throw one of my cards away gives me such a special feeling. You are the very first person I ran across on the net to inspire me to make cards and I remember being awestruck at all the ways you can make paper sing. I was fortunate to win one of your cards a while back and I feel like I have a little masterpiece displayed front and center on its shelf. I just want to take the time to tell you again how much I appreciate your kindness and your talent and especially your zeal for our Heavenly Creator. I can tell you not only talk the talk but you also walk the walk so until we meet in Heaven , may God richly bless you and your family. Hugs, Denice with a “c”ReplyCancel

    Hello Becca,
    You have been missed. I always looked forward to Fridays with Becca…however, your creation for this blog hop/giveaway touches my heart. You have a way of romancing the pieces and parts to make something that takes the breath away. Our house buyer feel through, so we are waiting to try again to sell in the spring. Now, what to do, as I have packed everything anticipating a Nov.29 closing. I guess I’ll just HAVE to buy your newest Dies and the small 6″ Platinum Die Cutting machine. Giggle! Best regards, SaraReplyCancel

    Hi, Becca,
    This is a gorgeous card & gift box – such a delight for my eyes! I couldn’t be happier that Spellbinders is featuring your Chantilly Lace dies. I am always fascinated by multi-layers but some of the other bloggers highlighted just how elegant your dies can be used on their own. Fancy certainly doesn’t have to be hard and time-consuming, since YOU do all the work!
    Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so grateful to fill my creative space with your beautiful dies.
    Love and blessings, SandyReplyCancel

    I haven’t made many cards period for the past 2 years. Maybe I will get a few Christmas ones done this year. Beautiful cards and dies.

  • Elizabeth PollockNovember 21, 2017 - 12:02 pm

    Oh Becca! I have been away from my card making for a couple of years and am just returning, I know, “Gasp”. And oh boy, you have been busy! What lacy and gorgeous dies you have come up with. As always, your creative genius never fails us!

    Umm, gee, I probably make around 65 Christmas cards a year. I love Christmas time as it seems to still be able to inspire us to a kinder side of ourselves.

    Hugs for now,

    Becca, this is gorgeous card. I love Bella Rose, as well as the other Chantilly Lace designs you have showed. I love the graceful way you put everything together. O yes, I made about 20 Christmas cards last year.ReplyCancel

  • Cathy W.November 22, 2017 - 4:12 am

    You did it again Becca. Absolutely beautiful collection. I can’t wait to make my new cards with the Chantilly Lace collection.
    I make approximately 25-30 Christmas cards a year. I start early in July. Each card takes about 3-4 hours to make. It is worth it because I know I bring smiles to those who receive them. Happy Holidays!ReplyCancel

  • Shirleen AlexanderNovember 22, 2017 - 4:31 pm

    Another beautiful card Becca. The only thing more amazing than your dies are your cards. You have a very special gift that I aspire to achieve on my cardmaking journey. I haven’t been at this for a long time but I make about 50-75 cards for Christmas. It’s a challenge but I feel so rewarded when I’m done with them. Thanks for all your inspiration.ReplyCancel

    Another STUNNER of a die!! (Do you realize my Spellbinders wishlist is over 1/2 your creations?!! This one is going up near the top!) Love those roses and the LEAVES!!! Did you just freehand fussy cut them, too?!
    My cards are all Thank You and Friendship cards. But, since I’m disabled, I only get out about 4 or 5 a month.ReplyCancel

  • christiNovember 23, 2017 - 9:14 pm

    I make over 50 cards per year. I really make Christmas cards all year long. it’s kind of a running joke with my friends. they laugh because I tell them I don’t send cards I just make them. I do send them but not as many as I make. I have a friend who always needs a card so I box mine up for her. she I tickled pink when she gets them. I have to laugh because sometimes she’ll send one to me. I love your new collection. can’t wait to play with them.ReplyCancel

  • karenladdNovember 25, 2017 - 1:40 am

    Your dies and projects are always awe-inspiring and so beautiful! I feel so inspired each time I visit your blog. As for my Christmas cards, I usually make about 60 and send out 30 or so. The rest I donate to a local nursing home for home bound seniors. They appreciate the handmade cards so very much.ReplyCancel

    Your cards always blow me away! The layers of die cuts and flowers are just gorgeous. I don’t make too many Christmas cards each year since I send photos cards but still make them for my close family and friends. I also make cards for the teachers in my daughter’s classrooms and other school personnel.ReplyCancel
