Oooh, you're gonna love this one! For Day Seven of my "31 Days of Doilies" summer blog series, I have a CHRISTMAS CARD!
That's right, a Christmas card made with the laser-cut doilies from the Firtatious Designer series specialty paper pack, a brand new item from the new Idea Book & Catalog (don't have yours yet? Mine are free to existing customer friends, and just $5 if you've never ordered with me or come to an event--email me to get one ASAP!)
Hmmm, you may be thinking to yourself--I thought the doily sheets were Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie colored? Well gird up your garters, grannie, because the backsides are a lovely versatile white!
I used a variety of circle punches to get several different sizes of snowflakes, and when I had them adhered down (2-Way Glue Pen rocks!) I ran the whole Night of Navy piece through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Folder, a technique known as Inset Embossing (photo tutorial here). Then everything got a BATH in Shimmer Spray, because if you can't go glam for Christmas, when, precisely, can you?
Enjoying the rest of the 31 Days of Doilies as much as I have been? Probably not, if you don't own Hello Doily and her friends Delicate Doilies, Fliratious DSP, and all their coordinating accessories. Click here to go to my shopping website, or email me to place your order!
Love this! What better than a Christmas card during the heat of the summer!
