Swirl dies

Cut a piece of patterned paper the size of card blank and distress the edges with scissors. Make a tear in the bottom edge and glue a small piece of lace behind as shown. Fix a length of matching lace to the left of the card and wrap twine around as shown. Glue this panel to the card base.

Next apply a scrap of patterned paper to the top right of the card.

Die cut a create a card panel in centura pearl and gently apply gilding polish over the top. Once dry buff with dry kitchen towel, this will give an aged look to the card. Glue to card from as shown.
