Video Friday | Shabby Chic Cards with Olga
Hello die cutting fans, thank you for joining me on Spellbinders blog! Today I am going to showcase 2 projects featuring Swirl Background and Curvy Labels die sets from Romancing the Swirl collection designed by Becca Feeken. Both cards are the same design but are a bit different in structure.
The project #1 is a multi-layered framed card decorated with a large flower made with Blooming Rose die set. For the background I used a sheet of paper with small floral pattern in subdued pink shades.
The project #2 is a trifold card that has a little pocket inside so it can be used as a money holder or a gift card holder. You can also slip a note with a message into that pocket. This card is also much quicker and easier to create than the previous one.
I have used vellum to create a background for labels on both cards. Semi-transparency is such a unique property of this material – although a label covers up almost half of a card you can still see how that gorgeous swirl background pattern spreads throughout the card front.
I have also used some die cut sentiments from both Phrase Set One and Phrase Set Two sets to add on top of labels. The first one is die cut from the same patterned paper that I used for the background and the second one is plain cream cardstock.
