Hi there sweet friends!  I’ve been out of town for a bit so I have a some catching up to do!  First a card to share – this was the card made with the flowers and custom dyed ribbon from the Scrunched Flower Tutorial.  It languished on my desk with a different colored background and it just didn’t speak to me, so I changed the background colors to brighten the card.  Since they are my home colors, I like much more – oh, how often this happens.  Again, I’m so loving the sentiment it’s a great addition to my stash and is one that will get much play – this’ll be a card I send often.  Penned by my friend Suzanne Cannon with Quietfire Design, she’s given many options to go along with the bold word “Thanks”, you can see all the options for the Thanks Cuddlers Set HERE.

For my 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card I crafted a cream background using the hinged method described HERE.  I created a matted layer from card stock cut to 4-7/8″ x 6-5/8″ and design paper cut to 4-3/4″ x 6-1/2″.  On top of that I ran a piece of lace and ribbon secured in the back by tape.  I arranged the small, medium and large flowers made with Spellbinders Garden Blooms (by A Gilded Life) into a triangle arrangement and tucked the swirls from Spellbinders Foliage Flourish (cut with green card stock) behind the flowers.  The sentiment is stamped onto a card stock cut with Spellbinders Labels Thirty Three and as an accent behind I’ve used Spellbinders Reflection, cut in half vertically.

    Beautiful as always. It’s comforting to know I’m not the only one with have done projects that don’t speak and sit there on the desk till the aha moment happens. It is an encouragement for the day, thanks for sharing your heart. Blessings!ReplyCancel

    Your cards are always so very beautiful! It’s great to see that someone else waits for a card to speak to them before they can call it finished. Thank you for being such an inspiration.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca
    Your card is beautiful as always
    I am like you sometimes I have to walk away and come
    back to it before I can finish it
    How do you get the Designer paper bigger for the size you need
    I ordered some from the Etsy store where you got yours and it comes
    on 1 sheet and is little instead of individual sheets that you can size
    I am trying to make 1 of your cards and am really frustrated with the Designer paper & it isn’t cheap. I ordered 2 from her.
    Please help so I can finish this card
    Thank youReplyCancel

    Hello Becca
    When you don’t show new cards I think that maybe you aren’t well !
    I seem to forget you have a life ! lol!
    I must try those flowers they are beautiful ..but read your tutorial carefully first!
    Love Quietfire sentiments, so thought provoking and sometimes all you need to say to a friend!
    Take care Becca

    Hi Becca!
    Hope you had fun!
    Was wondering if I had missed an email lol we miss when you don’t post.
    Beautiful card as usual.
    On your link the card that comes up is a filigree one and I don’t see this one being filigree am I missing something?

  • Dottie DavisApril 13, 2015 - 12:35 pm

    The colors are so soft and delicate not only on the paper but the flowers as well. I love the crunched look! I, too, have had problems with printing up the digital papers as LInda (9) referred to. The ones I looked at and purchased do not size down but come up huge … 81/2 x11. A little frustrating. So I think I must be missing something here. All said I love this card with the lace and all, too. Just beautiful Becca.ReplyCancel

    Becca, I love your cards and am an avid follower. I have been trying to make your scrunched flowers, but at the moment without success. I was using a different die, but have now managed to source a set of Garden Blooms, so step 1. successful, next can you please tell me the paper weight/gms that you use and hopefully when I get them all together I will have lovely flowers too. xxxReplyCancel
