Creative Nugget: Have you ever finished a card just to decide you didn't like it and rip it all apart? The gray background on my first attempt at this card was just too dark for my liking so apart it came. Several Doily Die cuts were embedded onto a piece of Vintage Cream card stock to create the background for this second attempt. A strip of Soulful Stitches paper was stitched to the doily background. A small quilt made of Soulful Stitches scraps stitched together on Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted to Sage Shadow was added next. Then came the Beautiful Border Die cut from Groovy Guava card stock. The knitting basket and yarn from the Hand Knit stamp set were colored with Copic Markers and cut with the matching Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies. A hand cut banner was stamped with the sentiment from the Birthday Doily stamp set. Two little buttons from the Doily Die were covered with Glossy Accents and pearls attached to finish the card. There…that's much better!
Here is another card made by layering the Doily Dies together in neutral tones and mounting them on a panel embossed with the Daisy Chain Background Die. I love how delicate this Doily Die is and know I will be reaching for it time and time again!
Here are the products from the ODBD Store that were used to create these samples:
My first card sample will also be submitted for the following challenges for this week:
