Good Morning :)
My card today is for our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs and this week we want to see Doilies on your creations. There is a fantastic $20 coupon for the winner to spend in the Cheery Lynn online store, so well worth playing along.
I used a stunning doily die from our New Releases called Notre Dame Cathedral . I knew when I saw this doily that it would be perfect for fantasy images and oh wow does it cut crisply - its fabulous!
I stitched Prima papers to American Crafts white textured cardstock before layering and sticking to a 6 x 6 card base. I also used the same textured card for the rest of die cuts and it worked beautifully. After adding the doily, I criss-crossed the centre weave of the stunning celtic chain border - (officially my new favourite border!), and added some leaves to the corner.
I then created the carnation using the Build a Flower #2 carnation petals and leaves. I cut approximately 16 petals, inked the edges and then just scrunched and layered them adding the leaves lastly and securing with a white brad. You can create endless types of flowers with these dies and they have such impact. I stamped my greeting on one of the Sentiment Frames and for the finishing touches I added some beautiful Mini Dimensional Butterflies and white pearls
All dies used on this card are:
