Romancing the Swirl with Becca Feeken

I am back this week with another card created with another one of Becca Feeken's incredible die designs. Romancing the Swirl from Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders is a phenomenal collection. In fact they make pulling together cards like this so easy that I almost feel like a cheat as a designer. You can literally do anything with this die and it will look amazing. 

This particular die is called Ringlet Round and comes in 4 pieces, giving you lots of options. You can leave the outer ring off for a cut in effect. The inner ring also allows you to keep the centre intact or remove it as a window piece as I have done.
To make this card a little different, I have die cut the piece with all four dies included. To adhere the die to the front of the card, I applied just a little adhesive under the four corners, and tilted the piece 90 degrees from what you see in the packaging to create mroe of a diamond shape. I then adhered those corners while pushing in from each side creating a domed effect.

The centre accent was adhered directly to the card front and looks recessed compared to the frame. 

A small sentiment tag and large bow off to the side aloows the die cut to take the focus on the card. It's incredible how a technically minimalist card can look so flawlessly elegant. It's a special kind of design magic that Becca has.
