|Swirly Holiday Card by Margie Higuchi|
Supplies - Glittered Cardstock: Core'dinations (Bermuda Bling); Patterned Paper: Carta Bella (Traditions Collection); Ink: Ranger (Distress Ink); Ribbon: Creative Impression; Pearls: Want2Scrap; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (LF-016 Grand Decorative Ovals One, LF-110 Grand Ovals and S4-339 2012 Holiday Tree); Tools and Adhesives: ScraPerfect (the Embellie Gellie and the Best Glue Ever); Foam Squares: SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares)
I cut: LF-016 Grand Decorative Ovals One (two with red paper); LF-110 Grand Ovals (one with patterned paper) and S4-339 2012 Holiday Tree (glittered cardstock) die templates. For easy release of paper from intricate cut dies, I used wax paper between the dies and paper.
Ink the edges of the ovals used for the card front - this will show the embossed edges really well.
Score the second oval die cut ¾" from the top of short side and apply glue in the scored area. Match up the two die cuts and adhere. It will look like the one pictured below - a shaped card.
On the smaller oval, assemble tree die cut, punch holes at the bottom and thread ribbon to tie a bow. Then add pearls to finish. Place foam squares on the back of the embellished oval and center onto the card front. I also added pearls on the edges of the card base. Here's another look at the card.
