Purple Doily Lace

I Know! You're thinking - "Another DOILY card!"
I hope that's an excited thought and not an annoyed one! HA!

Honestly stampers, this Delicate Doilies stamp set is just the bomb! I love working with it because not only is it gorgeous, it's versatile and can be used on so many different styles of cards and scrapbook pages. Have you purchased it yet? Is it on your Wish List? If not, you really need this one in your stampin' toolbox! And I think I know someone who can hook you up......! :)

Let me tell you about my card, ok?

I started with a 4 1/4" square folded card base of Whisper White cardstock.

The next layer is Wisteria Wonder cardstock (one of the NEW In Colors that YOU can get as part of my IN Colors Clubs! Click HERE for details!)

I cut the Wisteria Wonder at 4 1/8" square so there would be 1/16" borders around it. Sometimes this is nice for just a hint of color peeking out.

The top, stamped layer is also Whisper White, cut at 4" square. I used the small doily stamp and inked it up in Wisteria Wonder. It's stamped diagonally across the card front from left to right, inking up again between each impression.

Next, I took a 2" x 4" strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and punched out the lacy border with the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch. It's adhered to the card front with the 2 Way Glue Pen.

For the doily focal image, I stamped the large pointy doily in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White cardstock and one of the medium doilies in Wisteria Wonder on Whisper White. Both of these were trimmed out with my Paper Snips - not recommended if you have to make 50 of these puppies. But if you love to cut things out, then you can come to my house and do it for me! LOL!
Did you not know that I am a lazy stamper?! Yep, but sometimes you just gotta do what you do because the design calls for it - capish? Ok, on with the stamping.

The two doilies were stacked using Stampin' Dimensionals and I added the Rhinestone Circle Ice Brad to the center. They were then attached to the card front with more dimensionals and I moved on to the inside.

Here's a photo of the inside:

I kept it pretty simple, just stamping the large doily again with Wisteria Wonder and adding the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant. The sentiment is from the Cherish Friendship stamp set, which has beautiful images to watercolor if that's your thing. My friend Diana is a champion watercolorer, but I don't always have the patience - I told you, I'm lazy! :) I just loved the sentiment and honestly, bought the stamp set for it alone!

So there you go, what I think turned out to be a simply lovely card in some of my favorite colors!
Need the supplies to re-create this card for yourself? You can shop online at my Online Store 24/7! I've included a handy supply list at the bottom of this post with the item numbers you need to make it easy for you!

Have a great Tuesday everyone! I'll be back later to share my stampin' story with you all, hope you'll come back to see why I think Stampin' Up! is the company to be part of.
