Pretty soaring swallows card
For anyone that knows me, I love swirly designs and delicate flowers. So, no surprise on this card design.
This card sits on a Petal Pink card base. I used the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder (this embossing folder will be retiring soon so grab it if you want it…link included at bottom of post) to emboss a white panel and then blended Petal Pink across the embossed panel. A large circle was die cut from the Layering Circles dies. I then used the cloud stamp from the Soaring Swallows stamp set and 3rd generation stamped Balmy Blue for the clouds and then blended some Petal Pink into the clouds and around the edges of the circle.
The flower image towards the top left of the card was die cut from the Swallows dies in Petal Pink and adhered to the embossed panel.
A sentiment from the Soaring Swallows stamp set was stamped in Smokey Slate ink at the bottom of the circle. I stamped the swallow image in Smokey Slate and colored the image using Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends then die cut. Ribbon and a bow adorn the center of the circle. The swallow was adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I also used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the circle to the embossed panel. The embossed panel was then glued to the card base.
A white card panel was used for the inside of the card with 3rd generation stamping of clouds across the top of the panel. The envelope was finished with an image of clouds and a swallow as well on both the front of the envelope and the envelope flap. This completes today’s card.
I love the look of the Petal Pink and white with a splash of Balmy Blue to add interest. This card would be suitable as a congratulations card for a female or as a wedding congratulations.
