So swirly card

I must apologise for my crafty absence yet again. The last week of the school summer holidays is always a frantic time in our household.

As three of my kiddies have now gone back to school normal service should soon resume.

I have a card for you today using the 'so swirly' wheel, which i am sad to say is retiring from the Stampin' Up! catalogue.

The base card is white textured cardstock and the bottom corners are rounded to give a softer edge.

I rolled the Stampin' Up! wheel, 'So Swirly'  using Daffodil Delight ink over So Saffron textured cardstock for the top layer.  I added the ' for you' sentiment from the 'Fresh cuts' stamp set, (which is also retiring) in Concord Crush ink.

The bottom layer is made using Concord Crush cardstock embossed  using the square latticed textured embossing folder.

The three flowers were stamped with the level one hostess stamp set, 'Punch pot pourri' (also retiring) and Daffodil Delight ink. They were punched out using the 'Boho Blossoms' punch. Basic pearls finish off the flowers.

Whisper White Satin Ribbon finishes off the card.

This was a very simple card to make and the textured cardstock and embossing  make it less plain.

The retiring products are selling out fast now and i will really miss that 'So Swirly' wheel.

Looking on the bright side, there will be lots of new products available in the new Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 catalogue which commences on the 1st October.

I have the new catalogues arriving soon so contact me to obtain yours and join in with all the excitement!

Take care
