I was still in the Christmas card mode and so this time I made a card using dies again but this time I am entering it in the Cheery Lynn Blog Challenge for this week which involves using doilies.
I chose a base card of white card stock. I also die cut the doily out of white card stock too! My panel over the white was a darker pink card stock. Before I added the doily I inked it up with some Shattered Glass blue from Distressed Inks and then with Versamark ink before I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkle E 107 and heat set it. I then placed this on the pink panel.
Next I die cut the poinsettia out of Gina K. Designs Cranberry Tart card stock, but before I assembled it I also inked it up with Versamark ink and then added the Sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. Behind the assembled poinsettia I then added my pine branches cut from Gina K. Designs Fresh Asparagus card stock and they also were inked with Versamark and embossed.
After I added the assembled poinsettia to the card I finished the card by adding some pearls in each corner.
I usually don't make square cards but this doily is so big it was the only way it could be used unless one went with a much bigger rectangle type of card. I am not sure I picked the correct background color though, but the deed is done so I will stick with it.
Cheery Lynn Dies used are:
B146 Pine Branches
DL 104 Canadian Kalaidoscope
Sun is out again but it rained all night and we got over three inches of rain. I think we are good for a long time now. I am sure this will give a big boost to everything in the fields and the gardens.
Enjoy your day and may God bless you.
