Best Wishes Swirly Leaf :D


A swirly leaf aperture card filled with Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue, I did this technique a little while ago on a card which I called 'Fleur De Lis Birthday Card' and I was just dying to try it out with this fabulously delicate swirly leaf die from Sue Wilson :D

To create the background on this card, I used four colours of Altenew Crisp inks in the mini size and I swiped them across the card (I seem to be doing this quite a lot recently lol, must be my new favourite thing lol) I then sprayed on a bit of water and sprinkled on some Silver Dream Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder to add a little bit of metallic :D I then cut two of each of the delicate Swirly Leaf Trio dies from Sue Wilson to add to the background, and I used the largest swirly leaf along with the Bold Snowflake Frame die, also from Sue Wilson to create my focal element, and I cut two of these :D I backed one of these die cuts with some extra card, then I used a couple of colours of the pearly finish Cosmic Shimmer PVA glues and a sparkle PVA glue too, and I filled in the image :D Once this had dried I then adhered the second identical die-cut over the top to hide the messiness :D To add some extra dimension I used 3D foam to attach this to the card, and I finished it off with a gorgeous scripty sentiment from the Avery Elle A Tag For All die set :D Hope you liked the card! I absolutely love these swirly leaf dies, I'm sure you'll see me using them again in the future :D
