Touch the Spirit

Card Making Idea by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders Roman Romance with A2 Curved Borders Two
Hi there friends!  I’m sure you can tell, but lately I’ve been inspired by texture and embossing.  Today I’m sharing a shaped card (shaped using one of my favorite border dies) embellished using an embossing folder.  If you don’t recognize it, I embossed the embossing folder twice and assembled them so that the design was mirrored.  This time around I wanted a symmetical design and it’s easy enough to do.  I found  a wonderful Quietfire Design sentiment called To Create Is To Touch that spans the bottom of the card beautifully :-)WRBF-4174-2014
I’m using Spellbinders Roman Romance 3D M-Bossabilities for the texture along with Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders Two.  I cut it twice and seamed it in the middle where it would be covered by ribbon.  I applied the borders separately adhering them with Ranger Crystal Accents.  I made my top border hinged just like I do with other dies when making a filigree card base.  My front has two layers . . . I put a layer behind the embossing/bordered layer so that my card would be nice and neat on the inside and the ribbon raw edges would be hidden – this is the layer I stamped my sentiment on.

Rubber Stamps: Quietfire Design – To Create Is To Touch
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Solar White 80 lb
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories:  Spellbinders Roman Romance M-BossabilitiesSpellbinders A2 Curved Borders Two, The Paper Studio Pearls,  May Arts Silk Ribbon, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Sending blessings your way on this wonderful day!

    One Gorgeous Card! Absolutely pristine1 This is one for a TUTORIAL as there are so many “hidden” elements to putting it together. Those hidden elements that may be a problem to figure out at first glance. You know what they say, “Those that are really good at something make it look easy!” Not wanting to reinvent the wheel a good lesson would so be appreciated!ReplyCancel

    I know I always blog that this is the almighty of all cards but this is!! I am truly a white on white type person but I must say I have been wanting this embossing folder and this has made it a definite purchase. I would so love it if you could do a tutorial on this card Becca! Sometimes some of the things that are so easy for you (you are amazing!) isn’t quite so for us. I think a lot of us would love you to show us (when you have time of course.)
    Bless you and your crafty hands,

    Spectacular card. The previous time you used this embossing folder I immediately ran out and bought it, duplicated your card and used it on a variety of occasions to great success. This time around I don’t know if I will be able to follow your lead. There may be some glitches with the assembly. Sure would like a tutorial on this one because it is a winner. Love what you do–always just enough, unique, and classy.ReplyCancel

The designs are lovely, but the way you’ve combined them into this pristine white card, just speaks elegance to me. TFS & providing such fabulous design inspiration. Hope all is well in your world.

    Another beautiful master piece! I always look at your work closely so I can try to reconstruct the steps to making the card in my mind. Would you please be so kind as to show us (your loyal fans!) how we can make the top of the card using such a delicate curvy boarder that is hinged? While I’m still on my knees pleading, can you show us how to make that BEAUTIFUL bow. I have your bow maker.
