Variation on a Swirly theme

Hello!

I recently posted a masculine birthday card that I made for my father in law – you can see the post here.

As the design called for many colours of the same “swoosh” from the Swirly Scribbles framelits, I had a lot of leftovers pieces cut.  And that got me thinking.  It was really easy to create the following cards, basically out of spares:

Variations on a theme, I think you’ll agree!  But I think they look surprisingly different! The different sentiments in gold and copper also rang the changes and I really liked the Cajun Craze base as a further twist.  I have to admit that the brushed gold card stock isn’t available anymore, but the Gold Foil sheets in the current catalogue would bring a real shiny punch instead.

Hope you like these and that they make you think about cards you could tweak for a new look.

See you on Thursday for this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge – you still have time to enter this week’s, if you get a move on!
