Have you noticed the doilies everywhere? They are in crafting items, home decor, pillows...you name it; and you know me, I didn't want to be left out so I purchased a package at Michael's. I could not wait to use them - but I have to admit, I've had them a couple of weeks - anyone else do that? Buy it and then not use it right away?
Anyway, I pulled out this piece of pre-scored Sweet Blush card stock and realized it isn't an A2 size - it's actually 3.5" x 5.5", great, fun size. I scored the left-hand side about 1/4" in and glued it shut. Then I added the embossed dots only to the edge of where the card opens. I love this look; just hard to photograph!
I edged the doily with PTI's Tea Dye ink then stamped the center with this decorative circle from PTI's Simply Stationery. I could not decide what to put in the middle, I tried several different things but while digging through my stash I came across these beautiful Prima roses. I've never used them b/c they aren't something you could mail - unless you were including the card within a package you were mailing or physically giving the card to someone. (too bad I tend to shy away from bulk b/c of these reasons).
Anyway, a simple, yet delicate card!
Hope your Christmas was wonderful. And before I go, don't forget Kerry is having a great sale at Ladybug Crafts Ink through the remainder of December - don't miss out!
