Layered Elegant Swirl

Hi bloggers!  This card is a bit different for me, but I wanted to show off the Layered Elegant Swirl dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I started with a piece of milk coloured card and used the half circle shaped scallop die to cut my back piece for the gate fold card.  I used the decorative half circle swirl on the rose coloured card to cut the top part for my back piece.  I cut another piece of milk card approx. 2 inches shorter and wide enough to score it and fold the edges around the front to create the closed gate.  On the back of that piece, I attached the two small swirly pieces to cut the top of the gate fold (remember they will fold around so you will be seeing the front when finished).  I cut two small pieces in milk card and embossed them with the Mystic embossibility for a textured front panel for each side of the gate fold.  I created a band for my card by using the top portion of the decorative Lace border.  I glued rose card behind it for a spot of colour and wrapped the ends around the card and taped them together at the back.  I made two Bitty Blossom flowers and edged them with Victorian Velvet.  I added a couple of leaves and just the swirly bit from the Bella Rose swirl to complete the outside of the card.  For the inside of the card, I kept it simple with a sentiment and a decorative border.  I stamped my lovely sentiment in black Archival ink and cut it out with Labels 18.  I inked it while still in the die with Victorian Velvet.  I simply cut another larger Labels 18 to surround my sentiment and give it a base.  I stamped my border using the JustRite border stamp using a clear Perfect Medium pad and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I cut out both the border and the mat using one of the decorative Edgeability cutting edges.  I attached my border at the bottom of the card for a subtle bit of decoration which completed my card.  A nice change from my usual style so I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, not my cup of tea, I would keep the top off. Love the coloured card. Is there any chance you could put the size of your card on the blog as when I copy some of your designs I struggle with getting the composition right.
Thank you

Donna Jones

Beautiful, elegant, feminine card. Love the wrap I have been thinking of a particular folded card that needs one so must try it. Thanks as always Mabex

Hi Sue Another card I loved when you were doing your shows. I love how different it is especially the way you have to open the card. Another great idea thank you so much Michelle xxxxx

L Brawny said...

Wow I enjoyed the demo so much sue that I bought the dies! Unfortunately I deleted the recording so am very pleased to see the instructions on here! Beautiful cards as usual this week sue

Bosquie said...

This card is so so different. StunningXX

Anonymous said...

GM Sue - how unusual and lovely. I have read your instructions several times and I think I must be being a bit dense! I can't work out how it opens up to reveal the message inside with the lattice band that appears to run continuously across the card. I am sure it does somehow, I just can't see it! Could other bloggers enlighten me perhaps?..

Good Morning Sue,
Absolutely stunning, even though you say it is a different style, you certainly can tell it is a 'Sue' card, really beautiful. As I missed alot of the shows, these cards are a nice surprise each morning as I have not seen them before, again, it is beautiful.
Have a great day everyone.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
What a great idea to make the front of the card a closed pair of gates. I have used faux gates which open but never thought of doing them closed (silly isn't it).
I love the colour scheme too - it's gentle on the eyes.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
I missed the demo 'cos my TV was on the blink! I love the card and have had the die for some time now. Tried the gatefold a couple of times but find it quite tricky to get the side bits evenly cut with the dies. However, I shall continue to try.
I LOVE the way you've done the inside as well.

Jess Watson said...

Morning Sue, gorgeous card, saw the demo on .
C&C and absolutely loved it. Another die to add to my wish list! Take care, Jess xx

Saw you demo this on c and c so it's wonderful to get a closer look at it.

Well, I'm most certainly in the minority again ;) This just doesn't do it for me I'm afraid....I like all the individual elements (especially the blossoms) but not keen on the look of the whole thing. Can't always like everything though can we?

I really like this card Sue. About the only thing I would want to do different is the band, as when open and on display, some of the elegance would be lost with the band removed. But the composition is georgous.

Really loved your demo the other day. Your explanation on how to use those swirls on the ends for a gatefold was great! Can't wait to give it a try. Some of my order came today, but not that set of dies from the multi buy. This card is different from your usual style, but I like it :-). I'm working on wedding invites at the moment using gate folds & a spellbinder swirl with ribbon & dazzlers. Thanks for all your inspiration! Claire xxx
