Vintage Doilies

January 7, 2012

I used the sketch at Craft Project Central to create this card which I think has a vintage feel.

I stamped two of the images from the Delicate Doilies stamp set onto Very Vanilla card stock using Crumb Cake ink.  I hand cut the scalloped edge along the bottom (that’s why it isn’t as even as it should be) and then sponged around the edges using Chocolate Chip ink.  I wrapped this piece with Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding.  I embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it behind the stamped panel.  I stamped the greeting from the Just Believe stampset onto Very Vanilla card stock using Chocolate Chip ink and then attached it behind the Cherry Cobbler card stock.  The whole piece is then attached to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card stock.   I tied a bow using Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding and attached it to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.  I stamped the the large doily image twice onto scrap Very Vanilla card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink and the smaller image once using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I punched the centre of the smallest image using the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the centre of the larger images using the 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I attached them to the card front and then added a small Basic Rhinestone to the small flower and a large Basic Rhinestone to the centre of the 1/2″ circle images.

I think this is really soft and pretty, what do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    I love how you stamped the doilies to make your own designer paper. This is a very pretty card and I like the cherry cobbler and chocolate chip combo. Thanks for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards challenge.

      Thanks Jacque. I make my bows on a stand that my son-in-law made for me. It makes it a lot easier, you don’t need so many hands.
