Pearls & Swirls

I've had a really busy few days with my daughter and granddaughter staying with us and neither of them feeling well. They're still here, hence the reason for my not blogging!
However, I have a few minutes to post my contribution DT card for One Stop Card & Crafts, which this week is Pearls & Swirls. Today, we have a much extended team, so do take a look at all the fabulous examples on the blog and come and join in.
Cute Card Thursday's challenge is No designer Papers, Just us Girls, has the challenge Dry Embossing and Quixotic Challenges has Emboss it this week. This card is mainly just that!
It is made with mostly Cuttlebug elements. The background embossing is with the Divine Swirls folder and the heart was made with the duo Cut and Emboss Heart dies. The corners are also from Cuttlebug.
I always put Double Sided Tape on the back of the card before cutting out fiddly things like these corners, so that all I need to do is peel and stick, after they have been cut. It saves fiddling around with messy glue.
It's surprising how many different cards can be created just using white!


  1. such an elegant card Chrissie and so perfect for a traditional wedding.

  11. Great way to do the embossing challenge! Stunning wedding card. Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls. We appreciate your participation and support. :-) Hope to see you again on Saturday!

  12. Hi Chrissie - i was going to ask how your granddaughter was - didn't realise it was your daughter too :O(

    Hope they are on the mend now - i'm just playing catch up with some blogging...

    This is a really lovely card and could easily lend itself to being wedding stationery.

    What a great tip on putting the tape on the card before you cut it with the dies - i would never have thought of doing that - thank you.
