On the Ninth Day of the 31 Days of Doilies, you're invited to a Pool Party! To MAKE an easy-peasy Pool Party CARD, that is! All you need is the hottest new In Color, cool and crisp Pool Party, plus the Hello Doily background stamp, the new Printed Brads, and some satiny organza ribbon.
Stamp your big doily centered on Whisper White, then cut off the top and bottom equally (use your Paper Trimmer, because if you're like me, you can't cut a straight line to save your life). Adhere the top and bottom pieces to the card, then mat the middle piece on Pool Party, and adhere back in place over the top to cover the cuts. That's it!
I added a strip of organza ribbon, and hand-stitched (I KNOW!) a little rosette for the center. Don't faint. I know how to hand-stitch! So the rosette appears to be connected in some way to the ribbon underneath the layer, but it's not. That might have been a leetle too complicated for whatever hour of the night I was working on this.
Those new In Color Printed Brads are too cute for their own good, aren't they? I'm on my thrid container already. The Pool Party ones are always the first to go. But I'll save some special just for you, should you decide to book a workshop and you want us to make this card as one of the projects! Email me, and enjoy the next of the 31 Days of Doilies!
Beautiful! Lovin' your Doily cards:)
