Vintage Birthday with Grand Handwritten Sentiments

Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares, Spellbinders Blooms Four -
Good morning friends!  So happy to have had some crafty time, I have a card to share and a cool sale to talk about.  About the card . . .  try as I may, I’ll never have enough Birthday Cards on hand, so I added another one to the stash.  I’ve used JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and  JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments  SVG along with Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares and Spellbinders Blooms Four.  And  oh how I love Labels 47 Decorative Elements. This is the first time I’ve used this template and I sure don’t know why, it’s absolutely delightful and so airy!
Birthday Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using JustRite Grand Handwritten Sentiments and Spellbinders Labels 47 Decorative Elements, Spellbinders Pierced Squares, Spellbinders Blooms Four - www.amazingpapergrace.comI created the frame look using Labels 47 Decorative Elements and cutting the aperature using the Pierced Squares Template, then I inset a smaller square for a contrast effect.  The small flowers were made with Blooms Four which has three small flowers that I stacked to get a variety.  The Sentiment is cut using a JustRite SVG file and I love it that there are holes in the interior.  I wanted to create a dimensional cut element by stacking and offsetting two identical layers.  I colored the edges of the bottom layer with a gold krylon pin and it reminds me of the pricey little elements you buy at the craft store.  Frugal me = happy crafty girl.

    We never have enough birthday cards on hand. Why? Because we make them for each individual specific. At least that is what I do. This is very pretty Becca. Love it.

    Lovely card Becca. I haven’t noticed Blooms Four before but your card made me take notice. Love the shadow effect with the sentiment too but your bow steals the show! Any chance you could let us know how you make it?xReplyCancel

    Good morning Becca from a sunny Scotland at the moment,
    I do like your soft “old fashioned” coloured and decorated cards as they have that look as if they stepped out of the time of elegance and taste(oh i hope you don’t take offence at how i am trying to describe this beauty that you have given to us because i seriously don’t mean to offend). The papers that you have used, the soft antique rose stunning ribbon and the style is just so pretty, thank you flower for your work of sheer beauty.
    Love and crafty hugs across the miles
