Valentines Card and Blog Candy Winner

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Calligraphic Love Bits and 2014 Spellbinders Labels Thirty Seven
Hi there friends, I have a card to share today and also as promised, a winner for the blog candy.  As I looked back though some of my old work when pulling together my “Best of” post, I lingered over some of the little twists and things I used to do when making cards.  I’ve always love framing stuff and setting a die in the middle as an island but occassionaly love using the negative and then setting the die in the middle as an island.  My card today is rather large at 6-3/4″ tall by 7-1/4″ high; but since custom envelopes are no problem with my envelope board – I’ll whip one right up.

The negative part of my frame is made using Spellbinders Labels Thirty Seven and embellished with Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accentsfurther accented by Spellbinders Foliage Flourish and Spellbinders Corner and Flourish.

    Beautiful, the way that you combine dies and fold them inside eachother is just mind blowing. Creating so many more ways to use them. Once again I am left inspired, sometimes I know they are way beyond anything that I could do. But I love to see them

    Congrats to the winner and Becca, what a beautiful card. I’ve noticed you use the Twisted metal and Tags Accent quite often in your creations. Will have to get that one for sure!!ReplyCancel

  • Mary H.January 18, 2014 - 5:45 pm

    Congratulations to your winner. I am mailing candy out too! I just reached 200 followers…so exciting. This is lovely, and it was so nice to see you return to some of your earlier techniques. I loved the floating island with the twisted accent. I find that one a hard die to use a lot. It looks beautiful in your negative frame with all the pretty pink bows & flowers. A wonderful sentiment too. TFS, Hugs & Happy SundayReplyCancel
