Ribbon from my own stash

My inspiration for this card came from the little blue square in the middle of it. It was from one of my little craft room play days - I love this Swirls mask - in fact all of them! They just look so good on the core'dinations card because you get such a deep emboss with them and the deep colours of the card really show the Masks for what they are.

So, I kind of did this card backwards, I cut out the three blue squares with the swirls on, positioning the Die so that I got a full swirl on the large one, the second one is just part of the larger swirl which I put on with foam pads to de-coupage it, I also raised all the other squares with foam pads to give some more interest to the card.

The black backing is thick card which I embossed with the dot Mask and then I inked through the swirl mask in Black distress ink, this gave a very suttle but effective pattern to the black card and makes it look almost shiny in parts.

For the Heat Embossing in the Chunky gold I used the Papermania pen to get the fine edges and then the thicker Sailfor glue pen to colour in the areas I wanted to emboss. I then put on the Chunky Gold powder and heated from underneath. I added the ribbon with Red Tape stuck to the cards and just creased it up to give some texture. I did a third generation stamp to the back of the sentiment with a Xmas word stamp which I got last year and added the "All Wrapped Up" sentiment.

Most of the materials used were bought from Suzicraft.

I hope you like it, Bye for now, Sam
