Friday Die Day

Hello friends
It's Friday already!
For this week's Friday Die Day I'm featuring Swirl Tags.
This is one of the new Romancing the Swirl die sets designed by
Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.
You are always guaranteed stunning dies with Becca!
This is a 9 piece die set and the approximate
measurements are as follows:
Arch Tag 1: 2.00 x 3.16 in 5.10 x 8.09 cm
Arch Tag 2: 1.74 x 2.90 in 4.40 x 7.40 cm
Scallop Tag 1: 2.10 x 3.16 in 5.30 x 8.00 cm
Scallop Tag 2: 1.84 x 2.90 in 4.40 x 7.40 cm
Loop Swirl: 0.95 x 1.78 in 2.40 x 4.50 cm
Heart Swirl: 0.77 x 1.84 in 2.00 x 4.70 cm
Scroll Swirl: 1.03 x 1.81 in 2.60 x 4.60 cm
Fleur Swirl: 1.18 x 1.34 in 3.00 x 3.40 cm
Tag Hole: 0.25 x 0.25 in 0.60 x 0.60 cm
I've chosen to use four of the dies and this is how they look cut/embossed
(and a tad wonky, I must wear good glasses when taking photos!)

I've used Walnut Stain distress ink on the edges of the die cuts.
The flowers are Rose Buds, cut from watercolour card and inked.
Rose Buds is one of the new Blooming Garden dies - very sweet.

Now, if you watched my Facebook Live from last Sunday you may notice this
background is similar...oh alright, it's the same!
I prepared two and I didn't want to waste one so, being frugal, 
my ivory card background is stamped with
Vintage Script (Phill Martin) and the corner floral is a
stamp from the Stamp Doctor, although Wednesday's giveaway here
is a very similar stamp.
I also added Walnut Stain distress ink to the edges.
I layered up two of the tag die cuts. 

Added swirls to top and bottom of the vertical tag.
I then began to place my flowers.

A few more flowers and a stamped tag.

The finished card with a burgundy 5 x 7 card mat,
mounted onto an ivory card base.

Small pearls added to the flower centres.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
I'm up in Milton Keynes on Sunday so instead of Facebook Live
I've prepared a little video, more news on that to follow.
Take care friends.
