Swirls at Cards und More

Good Morning.
Another month has gone by so it's time for my next card for the Cards und More challenge.
This time our challenge to you is to make a project with the theme of

SWIRLS

Well when I looked in the old box of stamps one or two swirly ones popped out but I needed a focus. In the end I went with Christmas baubles after spotting a card on pinterest which caught my eye. Can't give a credit as I can't find it again, not being signed up.




I couldn't decide between the inny or the outy design so made both!

The bauble or Wesley Bob, as my friend Jenny B would say, die is one I've had for an age from GoKreate. The swirls are from the stash, one was a freebie the other I've lost the packet wrapper!
The first was inked with DI in Squeezed Lemonade and Festive Berries after the stamp was heat embossed with gold. The bauble was then cut using the die and popped up on foam pads, greeting from a Woodware set, organza ribbon from the stash.
The second was done the same way but instead of popping the bauble up I popped up the surround, a sort of invertage! The sentiment was from the same set as before. I used a textured card for this one with a bit of DI in Frayed Burlap for dimension. I also added a bit of bling and a bow from the ribbon box.

OK that's about it, so why not join us, can't wait to see your swirly creations, stamped of course!

I shall enter the following challenges:-

I went with baubles, especially my beige one.
