Stacking Base Swirls
for Lori Whitlock

Welcome to Lori's blog! Today I have a card I made using just the Stacking Base Swirls file. These cards are so fun and can provide a great base in which to layer sentiments, flowers or even a cut out paper pieced character. I think I want every design Lori has designed!

The hardest part is deciding which colors of papers to use and in what order. You might need to cut several and play with layering them. I pulled out some coordinating flowers, brads and as an afterthought added a ribbon.

I felt this sentiment that would be good for a sympathy card, one of the hardest cards to make.

Here's a link to the file

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

Be Mine Lori Whitlock

Welcome and Happy New Year 2017! I decided to skip right to Valentine's Cards. They are among my favorite to make. These box card files can be done up so many ways! You can add other files like I did here.

I decided to weld my sentiment, You simply Ungroup the image in Cricut Design Space then move the letter so they are touching and Highlight all the letters and hit the weld button! Voila the letters are connected!

I did a little double embossing trick dry emboss then using distress ink on raised area and clear embossing powder on the outside rectangles. I added and inside layer by hand-cutting that layer to fit inside.

I also stamped the red layers with a music note background stamp. Using stamps with cuts is a  great way to dress them up.

I dipped my sentiment into my versamark pad then added clear embossing powder and heated it to make it shiny.

Hope you enjoy my mini tutorial.  Happy New Year!

Here are the files I used:

A2 Box Card Valentine

4 Valentine Titles

Heart Cluster

Whew! Happy New Year!
