Thank You Doily Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am back with you this week to share a Thank you card I have created using the Nautical Wheeler Doily as my inspiration. I wanted to create this card with a lot of depth and layers. I love how the colours worked together and how my flowers and Dandelions die mimics the background pattern paper.

I cut my base from dark gray cardstock, die cut the Horizon Square Boutique Stacker Frame from light gray cardstock and layered my pattern paper on top. I then heat embossed the Nautical Wheeler Doily with embossing powder. I used the doily as a guide to trim away the center piece from the pattern paper, so that I could stamp my sentiment on the cardstock layer underneath.

My flowers were cut from white cardstock, leaves from the Rose and Leaves die set in dark gray cardstock and the Add a Flourish from light gray. I added the Dandelions in a rich marigold colour for a touch of boldness and Rhinestones for shine!

Above you can see a close up of the center and stamped Thank You sentiment. This card could have easily been turned into a shaker card by just adding acetate to the sentiment opening and sequins!

Dies used:
Nautical Wheeler Doily - DL180

Dandelions (Set of 2) - B453
