Amazing Paper Grace April Die of the Month Blog Hop

This Elegant Swivel & Sashay Card Die Set is absolutely amazing. We have so many combinations and possibilities to create something wonderful. The words we can use alone or with a background. That makes an additional effect. Flowers and leaves are my favourites. They are so cute.
And finally, the swivel mechanism inside the card makes it unique.

I wanted to create something different so I decided to make a card in a vintage style.
My first step is the selection of the paper. I took a regular card base and I scored it to the size that will be a card base for the biggest die cut from the set.
Firstly I started to create inside. I chose a delicate green paper with roses in the corner. I decorated it with a script stamp and little flowers.
In the middle, I put a swivel mechanism decorated with some pictures and a frame from the set of the Die of the Month.
In the front of the card, I used the words "Hello Friends" with a background. I added lace and beautiful, handmade flowers. The leaves were die cut using the leaf dies included in this set.

My second card for today:

My second card is very simple. Just one side card with a cream background. I added decorative elements on the edge of the card. In the middle, I put a "window" using a 3D tape. On the top, I decorated my project with a bow and flower. At the bottom, I put a gold sentiment on the same background as a card.

Stamps: Script Background Stamp
Paper: Shabby Chic Paper Pad, 6x6 brown card base, gold mirror paper
