Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (There Are Two Things) and Spellbinders Heirloom Rectangle, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles, Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers, Spellbinders Loopy Roll Flowers -
Hello there friends!  Are you ever stuck picking colors?  I am – all the time! Sometimes the selection of the design paper and card base take longer than it takes to make the card.  If you’re paralyzed, stop, drop what you’re doing and try white on white.  Layers with non-competing textures look fabulous in white and it’s always a classic card.  I pulled some of my favorite dies with the goal to get the card done instead of spending so much time fine tuning – when that’s the game plan I know that a tone on tone card is the best bet.

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design (There Are Two Things) and Spellbinders Heirloom Rectangle, Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles, Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers, Spellbinders Loopy Roll Flowers -
The shaped card is made using Spellbinders Heirloom Rectangle – cutting with just the outline for the card base and cutting with outline, filigree and inner rim for the upper layer.  Remember, to make a shaped card, you do not have to cut two full pieces at once, simply cut one layer with a fold at the top of 1″ being sure to seat the fold inside the cut lines in order to make a hinge – if you’re a visual crafter, I have a video on how to do that HERE. Next I stamped my Quietfire Design sentiment There Are Two Things We Can Give Our Children on to Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.  I finished off with a bow and embellished with Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers – these flowers are so versatile, I use them a lot.  For these buds use only the two smallest sets of petals, cinch around a pearl on a wire and secure with glue on the pearl and after the first petal.  For the leaves, cut two from Spellbinders Loopy Roll Flowers and pare down the leaf to the size you desire.  They take about 2-3 minutes each.

    What a gorgeous card. Love the saying you have put on the card.ReplyCancel

  • DottieMay 23, 2016 - 12:56 pm

    White on white is the greatest! The black ink lettering makes it looks so classy too. Though no one likes being stuck trying to figure out patterns and colors it is comforting to know that even the most experienced have the same time consuming troubles putting it all together. Thanks for sharing that tidbit Becca!ReplyCancel

    Monday morning just became special by this posting on your blog. This is card perfection! It’s a wonderful example of what you do so well-exquisite layering, lovely bows, beautiful hand-crafted flowers, expressing a heart-felt sentiment, rendered in beautiful and elegant calligraphy. A delight to the eyes.
    Thank you for getting my week off to a beautiful start.
    Love and blessings,

    Oh my, another Becca “beauty” so soon after the last one. You are definitely in a card making mood – me too! This tone on tone is lovely. I see you used white card stock this time. I now have your clinch and go flower die set. I must make the time to try my hand at flower making. Thanks for the video for making the flowers. Wishing you a beautiful week.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara TranquillaMay 23, 2016 - 1:46 pm

    Hi Becca, Just another beautiful card–classy and elegant. These two dies blend so well together with a touch of color in the flowers. I am much more comfortable with monochromatic color card, especially white since I don’t have an eye for mixing colors and patterns. Always a good safe place to start. Thanks for the encouragement and ideas. BarbaraReplyCancel

    White on white is one of my very favorites! This is truly awesome. I will be buying the Radiant Rectangles at Scrapbook Expo and the rest I have. The sentiment is bodacious as well but then that is what we expect from YOU!! Thanks for 3 days in a row; you are spoiling us!!

    Thank you Becca for your U Tube instructions on the hinged cards. Yours are so beautiful. I’m loving the cinch and go flowers. I even die cut some from the organza petals that you can get at Michaels. So simple and easy and beautiful. Just finished a raft of ladies shoe cards and noticed that one tiny area of the score line cut through. Must watch that next time. Perhaps my Designer Paper was too thin.


  • Deb M.May 23, 2016 - 4:25 pm

    OHHHH, I just LOVE this card! Love that die, just wish it was an a2 size…cause thats what I do the most.’s just beautiful!! I love all white cards too, or mostly white, whith just a touch of color…especially for weddings, and this die would make a great wedding card die. Just BEAUTIFUL!!!!ReplyCancel
