Yesterday Betsy, a PTI Design Team Member, showed us how to make your own doily (read her post). That was pretty inspiring, so I had to give it a go.
Here is my final card. Since the point was the doily, I wanted it to be pretty visible. I always think victorian tea when I think doily, so I tried to recreate that a bit on the card. I stamped the doily on white, I’m wishing I had done cream as all my lace bits are old and not white, but this one wasn’t too bad. I used the Linen impression plate on the card base.
Here is a shot of just the doily. I used quite a few sets, but the base was actually the frame from the most recent anniversary set – Round and Round. I stamped it once then inked just the flourishy sides and went around the circle. The petals of the doily are made with an frame from Boxes Bags & Tags! The other little bits came from Borders & Corners sets. I finished off the doily with an image from the first anniversary set – Simple Little Things – and a button.
