Memories are forever.

I have a layered elegant swirl card to share with you today
at Heartfelt Creations. 
Heartfelt Creations
Pop on over to the blog and check out the amazing projects.

I got drawn to use the photo of my Grandma for this and 
felt that the sentiment fitted as she has left me with so many
memories. Many happy times and thank goodness
I still have those memories.
I miss her every single day. I used to make her a card every week
when I lived in the USA, she is still my inspiration as I
am sure you can tell from some of my projects !!

I have my second project this week to share with you later

Here is what I used to make the card.

HCDP1 227 Vintage Floret paper
HCD 716  Elegant Swirl Die
HCDP1 238 Floral Key Papers
HCPC 3545 Open Leaf PreCut set
HCD 736 Classic Leaf Die
HCD 722 Tattered Blossoms Die
HCPC 3468 Tattered Blossoms PreCut set

Other Products Used: Pearl gems, clear beads, hot glue,
glitter glue, Distress inks.

Cut a 12x12 piece of paper from the pad 11cm along. Score at 10 cm and 13 cm from each
side and fold so the centre is outwards allowing the card to stand. Die cut the end using
the scalloped die.  Cut a matching piece of patterned paper 16 1/2 cm x 11cm and again 
in white card stock. Die cut using the large die at each end of the white card and the 
scalloped end on the coloured paper. Adhere the White over the coloured paper.  
Adhere onto the outer folded piece we scored to create a top layer. Cut two pieces of 
card 11cm x 10cm and die cut one end of each.  Adhere these either side of the scored card. 
Cut, adhere, ink and add beads to the flowers. Print a photograph and adhere to the front. 
Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card. Add a sentiment ticket from Floral Keys.
Along the edges of the elegant swirl die cuts adhere pearls and your card is complet
