Wedding Card: Filigree Swirls

The new filigree swirl stamps from Claritystamp are great for pattern building.  Here I created a frame for a wedding card using the Faith Filigree Swirls.
Lay the oval inner from Framer Shapes set 1 onto a piece of 7” x 7” stencil card and draw round the edge. Using the pencil line as a guide stamp the larger Faith Filigree Swirl stamp in Versamark ink and heat emboss with super fine gold embossing powder.
Continue in the same manner, alternating the stamps until the frame is complete.
Each stamp is used twice.
Add Wedding Day and Congratulations (Essential sentiments) to the centre of the frame using Versamark and gold embossing.
Erase the pencil line. Cut around the outside of the swirls leaving a narrow white border.
Emboss a second piece of stencil card using a Spellbinder M-Bossibilities folder (EG-003). Lightly rub over the embossed areas with gold wax paste.
Paint the swirls with gold mica powder picked up with a water brush.
Add the frame to the embossed card with foam pads.
To finish, add to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
