Doilies... part deux!


Did you see yesterday's doily making post? Well here is more of the same. I'm addicted to stamping doilies! You can see Betsy Veldman's original post here for more doily making information. The most fun part of doily building is breaking out all those old stamp sets. For this doily I used a few. From Papertrey ink I used: Wedding Day, Boxes, bags and Tags, and Borders and Corners circles. From Waltzingmouse I used: Very Vintage Labels 4.
Here is a close up shot. I used some Ocean Tides buttons and some chiffon ribbon that I picked up for a steal at Tuesday morning. The mat is some old Tres Jolie paper, I have had it forever. The base is Dark Chocolate cardstock. The doily was made on Rustic cream.

Here's an inside shot. Clean and simple. This is going to be the anniversary card for my husband. We will be celebrating 15 years in a few short weeks. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm getting hooked on these doilys, too. This one is a stunner! Quick question: Did you hand cut this? If so, your scissor skilz are amazing. I just love how the whole card turned out. The doily just MAKES this card.
