Ornate Vintage Card

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone, hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

For my Cheery Lynn DT card this week I decided to showcase the versatility of one of my latest favourite dies from the newly released Cheery Lynn Designs Doily Collection called Alpine Flourish Doily. 

This die comes as a set of 2. You have the option to have a solid centre or use the ornate centre in the middle of your doily. For my card this time, I opted to have the solid centre as I wanted to stamp and mount a verse to place on it using the card maker die, this also fits perfectly as a mount to the back of my Alpine Flourish.

You will notice the ornate sides on my card are die cut using the centrepiece from my doily. I then mounted onto my plain card stock to make my design pop forward.

My flower and leaves were shaded with distress inks and mounted onto the Italian Flourish Mini Doily. I die cut out 2 doilies and made a cut into the centre on both of them. Next folding back and forward in a concertina style, I glued them together at the edges to form the full circle again.

I added a little stickles and distress around the edge and pearls to finish.
