We Cannot Tell the Precise Moment. . .

Friendship Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design and Spellbinders - www.amazingpapergrace.com
… when friendship is formed.  I have been planning to use this stamp for quite some time, it’s one of my hands down all time favorite sentiments.  So much so, that I have it twice.   I had it from another company that retired it but this one is current and and is available from Quietfire Design.  Such a beautiful thought and this sentiment describes that special realization when you have a keeper.  This one goes in my #written word line up for a friend.

I used Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments paired with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight and Spellbinders Labels Thirty Six.  Believe it or not, the round embellishment is Spellbinders Window Two D-Lite.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken -  Quietfire Design
Here’s how I made it – step by step:

  1. Create a card base with cream card stock that measures 5″ x 7″.  (Card bases is made with two pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″‘ paper scored and glued as in this Hinge Video.)
  2. With cream paper, cut a panel 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″ and mat it with a lavender moon panel cut to 4-5/8″ x 5-7/8″.  Adhere with cream on top.
  3. Cut/emboss Tranquil Moments from cream paper, rim with Krylon Pen and adhere to cream/lavender panel.
  4. Cut/emboss Labels Twenty Eight with lavender moon.
  5. Cut/emboss two D-Lite Window Two dies and cut off curved top, apply to lavender die cut with glue.  Adhere to previous layer with foam tape.
  6. Wrap ribbon horizontally around card, taping on back.  Adhere grouping to card base.
  7. Cut/emboss Labels Thirty Six, stamp with sentiment, rim with Krylon Pen, adhere to card base with double foam tape.
  8. Attach bow to left corner of card.  Add Flowers and Pearls.

    Been camping for the last 15-17 days but managed to pack all my dies and embossing folders to let my neice and sister use while here in Ohio. Spent quite a few hours this week cutting and embossing. They have been so thrilled with all of your dies especially. Can’t not buy when it has your name attached. LOL
    Love this card, so beautiful.
    I have a question for the parking lot. When you do not have the exact die that you have in your menu, how should one go about improvising for something that we do own? Do you have any pointers for that? Just asking? Do you also know if Spellbinders is coming out with any new Christmas dies this year and if so when?
    Hope you have a good week.
    Hugs and prayers,

    Good evening Becca,
    not a truer word has been said, what a beautiful stamp. I always thank the day that i came back to work from a school week holiday to find a lady that right from the off became a very old and dear friend. She only worked with us for 4 months but 5 years later we still meet up every week and put the world to rights as i was pensioned of through ill health so i make myself go and see her each week because she is always there in good and bad. Thank you Becca for a beautiful card and now i need to find who sells this stamp in Scotland.
