Hybrid Crafts: Swirly Cards

Swirl Card (Brown)

Swirl Card (Yellow)

CREDITS:
Swirls: Holly McCaig
Floral Overlay (on swirls and envelope lining): Fairy Dust Papers by Amanda Sok
Font (on back): Pristina
Other: Rhinestone

Printed on Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matt
e


Done for KWerner's Color Inspiration Challenge #47.


I LURV the way these turned out. At first I tried printing on a textured card stock, but when I tried to print, the color cracked (best I can explain it), so then I added texture with some overlays and it really gave it a nice pop. I also printed some on regular paper to make envelope liners with. It really adds a lot!

These are really "WOW". I love the idea of doing a hybrid card, and these are striking! You said mine looked store-bought - and I think that most definitely goes for yours. Just gorgeous!
