Swirl Frame Embossed Card + Search Our Blog!


Happy Monday to you all, and I have a new card to show you…


But business first. The Paper Wishes Blog now has a search bar—look on the top right. HOORAY!!! Now you can search previous blog posts for cardmaking ideas, event info and whatever else you might be looking for. 🙂


Now onto the project. I actually made this quick birthday card at home for my mom! As many of you know, I have three daughters—ages 3, 2 and 9 months! Being able to make a card, even a simple one, is a miracle in and of itself! But when you work at Paper Wishes, you no longer have the luxury of buying cards!! 😉






This card was pretty straightforward—the whale image was stamped and clear-embossed onto white cardstock, and then inked with Peacock Feathers Mini Distress Ink. I filled in the little heart with Red Stickles™ glitter glue.

Now obviously you could have “blinged out” this card a whole lot more, but a) time was a factor and b) I really just wanted the embossing to stand out! The Swirly Frame embossing folder is one of my favorites because it’s gorgeous and it frames any focal perfectly!

I’ll be trying to bring you lots of cardmaking ideas in the near future because… we have less than 2 weeks until World Cardmaking Day! Yikes, how did that happen? So stay tuned, because we will soon be announcing details for our World Cardmaking Day Challenge!

I hope you all have a wonderful (and creative) week! Thanks for stopping by!
