Sending Hugs and Kisses!

Happy Wednesday!  It is time for some summertime swirls with a new inspiration challenge!

The Card Concept has a new photo inspiration challenge starting today!  This one is all about Summer Swirls!  Hope you can join us and play along.    I am also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. 

I was inspired by the angles and feeling of movement in the inspiration photo. I used a clean and graphic design style for my card. 

For my card, I started with some select white card stock.  I am using Carta Bella Botanical Garden pattern paper pack.  I die cut the small polka dotted pattern with a rectangle stitched frame and used  Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to add it to a top folding select white card stock base.  

I chose a floral pattern and made a wonky cut to play off of the different angles in the inspiration photo. I used some foam tape to pop up the floral pattern for added dimension.  I used true black card stock,powder bag, versamark ink, and heat embossed using gold embossing powder the sentiment from SSS Leafy Frames stamp set.   I think this sentiment can work perfectly as an anniversary card!

I die cut with a fishtail banner and used foam tape to offset it across the top.  I finished my card with a few golden clear sequins!
Here is a list of many of the products I generally
 use every time I make a card.
