Pearl and Aqua Swirl...

Happy Monday,

I thought I had exhausted the cards I made with the find it snowflake swirl die however I found this one lurking in my files and its another way to use the die this time as a base for Poinsettias.

I used a mother of pearl card ( on my next Hochanda shows) for this card and cut the apeture in the centre before embossing the piece with my rustic frame embossing folder.  I added a layer to this in aqua cutting a smaller circle in the centre.  I backed this with a piece of white card embossed with the winter trees embossing folder.  Finally for this part I added acute behind the top layer and added the Christmas die cut ( From Press cut) on the acetate so that it appears to float.

I cut the snowflake swirl die in aqua and added this around the base of the circular aperture.  I then cut a load of poinsettias in the pearl card and added these over the swirl with bow of aqua and white seam binding over this.  I then added the fall away snowflakes from the swirl die in the centre of the flowers with a pearl in the centre.

I added all of this to a larger card as shown using the falling snow embossing folder from crafts too.


Enjoy...

  10. Morning John, oh you have surpassed yourself with this one today, as you know aqua is my most favourite colour and everything works so well on this card, love it, truly. I like the fall out bits from the die cut being on the centre of the flowers too, works very well me thinks.

    Had a great time at Martine and Hellens Workshop yesterday, you would have loved it, lots of music, laughter, card making and plenty of food, oh I was stuffed.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
