Best Wishes, Vintage Card - Imaginarium Designs

6" X 6"
 One of my projects for Imaginarium Designs this month is this 'Best Wishes' Card.

The 'Best Wishes' card holds the 'Swirly Frame' (IDFR0004) which is just so ornate with delicate details (so pretty and one of my very favourites).  It stands at 3" X 2" and is perfect for framing small photographs or pictures in creative projects.  Also, there is a larger version available (6" X 4").  I really wanted the frame to stand out on my card, so I painted the frame with 'Antique Gold', and then a light layer of 'Gold' (which is a little brighter) using Creative Inspiration Paints.  This process gave a beautiful shimmer to the frame, really enhancing the chipboard. 'Best Wishes' (IDW0008) chipboard piece was applied to the base of the card, and painted in the same manner.  The 'Best Wishes' chipboard photograph (below), shows how beautiful the paint shimmers after being painted - I just love it.

The 'Swirly Frame' was surrounded with a floral arrangement using a variety of different elements - from a ready made flower, to die cuts/punches, silk ribbons, and charms.  For a full list of products, see bottom of post.
