Swirly congratulations for any occasion

Sale A Bration CongratsThere are so many things that can be done with the Big Shot and I wanted to come up with a card showcasing several different techniques.

A texturz plate with some Elegant Eggplant craft ink brayered on it  gave a lovely background on the Perfect Plum cardstock.  I used the Stampin’ Up! simple flower embosslit die to emboss and cut out (yes, it does both!!) the flowers in Pale Plum and Elegant Eggplant.  The Stampin’ Up! Little Leaves sizzlit die was used to cut the leaves out Certainly Celery cardstock.

Some Whisper White cardstock and congratulations stamped in Elegant Eggplant from the Sale-A-Bration Congrats stamp set finished off the card.

With all the texture and the beautiful mix of colors this card is sure to please anyone who receives it.  I thought it would work wonderfully for a engagement or wedding card or could even be used for retirement or birthday. . . . I guess I should just say it would be great for any occasion!

There is something about swirlies that I love.  I don’t know what it is but I always get sucked in.  The Baroque Motifs stamp set, this texturz set, the YummyStamp set, the So Swirly wheel and so many others are so much fun to work with!  When I saw this new texturz plate in the Idea Book & Catalog I knew it would be on my list to buy right away.   Even if I hadn’t liked the other designs available with this set I probably would have had to get it.  I’m just a sucker for swirlies!

So, do you have a new item waiting to be used?  Is there something you’ve bought that’s just sitting around unopened?  Get it out and use it!  Give it a try and you might just find it even more fun than you thought it would be when you bought it!

Happy creating!
