Swirly Mondrian

This card is entered into the Crazy Crafters' Team Project Highlight this week.  Do take a look at all the great projects and vote for your favourites!

I was really happy with the Mondrian inspired card set that I made recently, especially the card box.  I knew I would be revisiting the theme sooner or later!

The Swirly Scribbles thinlits combined with primary colours give a crisp, graphic look to a card
 
The basic card is a 6" square of Basic Black.

I cut the long die in the Swirly Scribbles thinlit set  from Basic Black card stock and applied the lines onto a strip of  Real Red cardstock.  I then cut the same die with Pacific Point, Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight cardstock.  

I adhered pieces of the coloured cardstock into the Basic Black lines - leaving some spaces red.  The strip of red cardstock was wider than the Swirly Scribbles die, so I had to make a join.

I then adhered this decorated red strip to the front of the card.

This is how the dies fit together
I knew I wanted a circular label to cover the join on the front of the card and decided to use the larger of the round Swirly Scribbles dies to decorate the circular label. 

I wanted to inset the design, so I cut the circle and the Swirly Sribble at the same time from Whisper White cardstock.  I removed the Swirly Scribble and kept it for use on another project.

I cut another circle with the same Layering Circles framelit and glued the other white piece onto it.

I then the cut the Swirly Scribble again in Basic Black, Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and Real Red.  I adhered the Basic Black Swirly Scribble into position on the circle and then glued in a variety of coloured pieces.  Since I wanted a smooth surface, I then adhered the Whisper White Swirly Scribble centre back into position and stamped the greeting from Tin of Cards. 

I used the Swirly Birds stamp set with Basic Black, Real Red and Crushed Curry ink to decorate the inside of the card.

  1. It's good to know that one of the layering circle dies can be used with swirly scribbles as I'm thinking to get Layyering Circles and Ovals for my next order! Really striking color combination. I love it!
