Doily time...

In Love Arts sent me a pretty little die called a Clover Wreath Die. You can find it in their shop here, AND you can get a 15% discount on your order by using this code:


I decided to make three distinctly different cards with it, and here they are:

For this card I used the doily as a backdrop for my flower. I thought it turned out quite pretty with my curved and scalloped edge on the top flap.

To make my flower, I cut out three layers of petals, inked the centers a bit and then scrunched them all up into little balls. Then I carefully unfolded them and glued them together. I like the dimension that this gives to the flowers. An enamel dot finished off the center.

The little banner die is also from In Love Arts and you can find it here.

The card is blank inside so I can write a personal note.

My next card was a Christmas card. Once again, I used the doily as a backdrop to my flower--a ponsettia that has inked edges on the petals and Nuvo Drops in the center.

The music DSP is from an old Heidi Swapp ( I think) stack. I cut out a piece big enough for my card and inked the edges with distress ink.

My sentiment has been die-cut twice--once from black CS and once from gold metallic CS. I glued them together with the black offset just a bit to give a little better definition.

The inside of my card has a simple stamped sentiment. I might go back and add a little something else to dress it up a bit.

Finally, I die-cut several doilies and then cut a couple of them apart into the heart shapes that make up each one. I glued them randomly to a card front by sponging some liquid glue onto the back side each one. I added some sequins and a heat-embossed sentiment that is popped up on foam tape.

I have left the inside of this card blank, but I may add a stamped or computer-generated Valentine's sentiment to it later on.

I had a lot of fun coming up with three different cards using the Clover Wreath doily die.

Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by. Remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

What a pretty little die, and you've showcased it so wonderfully, Cheryl! I love the hearts - I hadn't even noticed it was made up of hearts.

You've shown this die off really well. I especially like the first one. That pink flower goes so well with the background. The doily and curved edge compliment each other.

What a beautiful die, very versatile and love how you used it on all three of your cards. I really really like the first one, so elegant and pretty. You have been busy.
