Elegant Swirls

This design is perfect for a special occasion, as it is quite an elaborate yet elegant look.  The main focal panel is created using co-ordinations card in black, put in an embossing folder and run through a machine.  This cardstock has a coloured core which highlights the pattern once it has been sanded back.  The centre is cut out as on previous designs, then the panel is matted onto mirror card which shows through the central apperture.  A couple of 3D flowers are created by stamping text onto pieces of black and white card, then die cutting or punching out petal shapes.  The petals are layered black and white alternately and secured in the middle with a brad which also forms the centre of the flower.  A swirl shaped die is used to cut swirls from black, white and silver mirror card.  The focal panel is attached to the base card, then the flowers and swirls are added and a greeting completes the card.
