Valiant Honor Monogrammed Card Set

Valiant Honor Monogrammed Card Set Tutorial by Becca Feeken
Hi there blog friends.  I’m so excited to be the Guest Blogger over on the Spellbinders Blog today, I was tickled that they did a little interview!  Please be sure you do hop over to the Spellbinders blog – you can win the die templates I used for this project by clicking on the contest link at the bottom of their blog post – and I’d love it if you gave the folks over there a shout out for all the beautiful dies they’ve created for us to play with :-)  Today I chose to do a project featuring one of my favorite new die templates Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor and embellished it with a set that should be a staple in your ‘stash’Spellbinders Font One – Uppercase.   I was fortunate enough to reveal A2Valiant Honor last month and I made this ensemble along with all the others items I previewed in THIS POST.  My mind was racing with so many ideas for this die template, so I saved this one for a point in time that I could do a step by step tutorial.   It’s an easy project – I took plenty of pictures so that you can see exactly how it goes together.  You can click on any of the pictures to make them larger.  Also, jump over to my Pinterest Boards to download the tutorial as a pin – – – – >HERE

The set includes four monogrammed cards.
Box measures 4″ wide by 5-3/4″ tall and 1-1/4″ deep
The individual cards measure 4″ wide by 5-1/8″ tall











Stamps: None
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Natural White (80lb), Bazzill
Ink: Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink AccessoriesSpellbinders Font One – UppercaseSpellbinders A2 Valiant Honor Recollection Pearls, Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Thanks so much for stopping by. . . have a great weekend, friends!  Don’t forget to pop over to the Spellbinders Blog, click the prize link and fill out the form so you can win both of these sets for your stash!!

  • Karen M. RothFebruary 2, 2014 - 2:12 am

    This is really beautiful!

    Also, I am sorry for my last couple of posts, it is just that I am desperately trying to find some encouragement. And your cards are so lovely that I would love a set of them for myself. Or from any card maker.

    I’ll be praying for you and I hope your situation turns out for the good, hun.
    I know that you are super busy but it would seriously tickle me to no end to receive a card from you as hun, you are my inspiration as a person led by God as you have risen above so many trials and obstacles and have made a name for yourself. I truly feel like God led me to you for a reason but I do not know why just yet.. I love your character and your inner strength. You are truly a beautiful Lady inside and out.ReplyCancel

  • Ann Marie GovernaleFebruary 2, 2014 - 7:52 am

    Beautiful set and thank you for your tutorial!! I also want to tell you how touching your story about Bailey was to me. I had a similar dog for 15 years who did all the same things as your Bailey. She passed away shortly before Thanksgiving but we were blessed by her even with her imperfections. Amber, too, became my husband’s bedside companion through cancer and a very successful liver transplant two years ago. She was devoted to us in ways that still amaze us, and yet, she was also skittish around others. She was never aggressive, ever, but she needed to be with us constantly – room to room if need be…We did get a new little girl, Maggie, three weeks later despite being told to wait 6 months. Maggie found me actually one day as I was longing to feel the fur of another dog and a trip to the pet store put her in my sights. I did wait three weeks to be sure but my heart would not let her go and so we begin again… isn’t that the way with all things? Your story was so beautifully told and only reaffirmed that our fur babies do more for us than we often realize. I am so glad your story had a happy fact, I don’t think it could have ended any other way. xxxReplyCancel

  • Holly BFebruary 2, 2014 - 8:31 am

Bless you both!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,
    Since you were the first designer to offer any of the new CHA release dies and this was one of them, I pre-ordered along with a bunch of the other ones. If I win this, I will send to my Sis as I got her addicted to Spellbinders when I visited 2 years ago. This set is so awesome and rather easy as well. Can’t wait until mid March when these come in. You are so lucky to have all of everything that comes up in your stash!!!!! Some how with the busyness of the weekend I didn’t get to post on this one….so doing a blurb today. Have a wonderful week, hon.
