BTW, this is also my entry for Cute Card Thursday Challenge 140 - Blast from the Past! This week's rule is to revisit one of their previous challenges. It can be any of the challenges with the exception of the open theme weeks. Be sure to include the week number and title of the challenge in your post.
I choose Challenge 131- A Sketch by Leann.
Here's my take on this challenge:
I decided to make a monochromatic theme for my entry (white, silver and cool grey tones).
Then I added a silver foil doily then matted it with a bigger white doily.
The Flourishes image was stamped and embossed in a clear vellum paper then I matted it in a cool grey CS.
I'm so pleased with this card...
Flourishes stamps are so good for an elegant looking card.
Happy I'm a collector "Smiling"...
Do you know that you can actually make your own doilies using your Martha Stewart craft corner punches?
Here, take a look...
Well, I haven't been playing with different sizes but here's what I came up with.
Aren't they pretty and yummy!?
The above doilies were cut in 5 and 1/2 inches in diameter using MS circle cutter. Some of the these homemade doilies were in an odd shape but guess what!? It actually look great if you
mix and match doilies. Try it and maybe you would like it.
Don't forget that you can make doilies using your Spellbinder dies too ( the pendant series). Stamp stores like PTI and MFT has recently released their own doily dies too. Another option you have is to use your Cricut machines using cartridges like Mother's Day 2010, Cindy Loo and the newly released Paper Lace.
