Doilies & Stars

Doilies & Stars | by karen @ carefree creations

I was very much inspired this card by Teri Anderson.

The notched star banner is perfect here (the die was debuted out during Halloween so I never really looked at it outside that context).

I didn’t have a sentiment that would be bold enough on that busy background paper and fit in a rectangle, so I started looking for alternatives. I thought the doily would dress the card up a bit and provide a good focal point. I added weight to it by stamping the frame (which I was so happy that it fit so well!!).

Happy 4th of July
