Lace Wardrobe Style Card


Hi everyone, 
For my DT card this week I thought I would showcase how versatile Cheery Lynn doilies can be in making beautiful accents and patterns on our craft projects.
The Anastasia border matches the Kiwi doily die perfectly so are great to use together, especially when making a real feature with them, like I am doing with this card.


On the opening of my card you will see the border strips, I love the lace effect. You will also see my doily cut into corners and halved. I matted and layered onto papers.


My flowers were made by cutting them out in same pale green card stock as the swirls and background but I stamped a little gesso onto them and rubbed the edges too with gesso before making them up, to give a shabby feel.


The inside of my card compliments the outside and I embellished with a few pearls to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my card.
