Flower Swirls

Hi there Friends and Fellow Crafters,

Today the card I'm going to share with you was made  in September 2006 for Sue and Harvey.    I don't think there has ever been a stamp from Imagination Craft's that I have disliked !   This is quite a simple card but needs a little time and patience when shaping and glueing the wires in place.

Fold some white card in half portrait style.   Stamp the flower swirl onto a spare piece of white card.   Paint with Twinkling H2 os.   Paint the three largest flowers with the Ocean wave and the smaller flower with the Indian copper.
Cut out the flower heads only and glue in position on the blank base card,  in the position they would be in if you had stamped the flowers on the blank base card.

Stamp the flowers again onto spare white card, colour then cut out and 3d them onto the flowers on the base card, using sticky foam pads or silicone glue.   Lightly paint around the flowers with the Ocean Wave H2 o.

Now bend the wires to match the swirls on the stamp using fine pliers, then glue in position on the base card, around the 
flowers  using the diamond glaze.

Spread a thin layer of glitter glue around the wires.   Add a small blue ribbon to the top right hand corner of the  card.   Add some glitter glue to the flower centres, that's it the card is finished.

Take care of yourselves till next time   
Enjoy your crafting
Hugs Jennifer xxxxx
