Welcome back to the 31 Days of Doilies! I hope you're enjoying all the ideas for the products from Stampin' Up's Flirtatious Suite, like the Delicate Doilies stamp set used on this card. I had been using the doilies en masse on several cards by the point I started this one, so I decided to scale it back and see if I could make a card where the doily was not the focal point, but only highlighted it. I like how this one turned out!
This one's all about the details. First the doily is stamped in River Rock on Very Vanilla, and the sentiment from Perfectly Penned in Concord Crush. Then the large and small flowers from Vintage Vogue where stamped full strength in Concord Crush and the vine image in Always Artichoke. I used the Rock N Roll technique with two additional hand-cut flowers to layer on top (inking up with Wisteria Wonder, then rolling just the edges of the stamp into Concord Crush before stamping.) A little glam is added with some Smooch Accent Ink in Illuminate, Crystal Effects, and a bunch of Basic Rhinestones.
You can see a much cleaner, Vintage Nouveau version of this card, minus the Vintage Wallpaper Big Shot embossing and Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon along the top edge, by clicking here. Both versions are fun, depending on how much you feel like putzing that day!
