Good morning sweet friends! I’ve been tinkering with the dies from the Romancing the Swirl Collection, so I reached for the lovely Flourished Square to make a shaped card and embellished it using Hemstitch Circles. If you are new here and wonder how to do that, I used the hinged technique outlined in this video —->HERE to get the front and back of the card. Basically, you cut two pieces – one with a hinge and glue together at the hinge. It’s so pretty to see the filigree through the front and the back. On this one, I didn’t want an aperture in the center because I wanted to be able to stamp my sentiment there. I’m using another new sentiment from Quietfire Design called Without Music.
Shaped Card Ensemble
I thought it would be cute to create an ensemble box to go along with the card. I simply cut an extra diecut from Flourished Square and made a score line from the corner point of the interior solid piece to the adjacent corner point and snipped diagonally through the corner. Then I made a lid (1-1/8″ deep) the size of scoreline square (2-3/4″). I draped my scored and cut die over the box top and glued it down!
A Pin for You :-)

Thanks so much for your good wishes. I’m continually reminded of the sweet friends I have, that visit me here. I so appreciate you! Oh, and you can’t imagine what’s going on in my mind after listening to Shauna Niequest – Present over Perfect. It was excellent, uplifting and thought provoking
read listen. The book would take me weeks to read but the Audible Book was only four and a half hours. If you are needing something to get you centered and focused, I highly recommend.
