Dandelion Thanks So Much Card

Another card made using a new embossing folder, this time the Crafts Too Swirl Frame folder. The card is approx. 5 3/4" square and is made with hessian textured card. I embossed the folder on the same textured card, rounded the corners and covered the inside of the frame panel with the same patterned paper I used for the background.

For the image panel, I stamped the dandelion and sentiment and then added some colour to the dandelion with shimmery chalks. I swiped Choc Chip ink around the image after rounding the corners and have popped it up with foam pads. Some ribbon and a few gems added to the dandelion completed the card.

Stamps: Dandelion from Hero Arts, sentiment from SU!
CS: Snow White Hessian textured CS
Patterned paper: PaperMania
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip
Tools: Crafts Too Swirl Frame embossing folder, Pebbles Inc. Shimmer Chalks, X Cut Corner Rounder punch
Embellishments & accessories: SU! Choc Chip grosgrain ribbon, small clear gems, 3d foam pads
