I wanted so badly to take a break and make a card today and just couldn't find time or mojo or energy. But then when I thought I was just organizing one last thing, something struck me and I ended up putting together a card. I have to say that this looks so much better in real life than what it does in the photos though.
Oh. My. Word. That doily die!? Let me tell you. Fabulous! FABULOUS! I can't wait to make my own doilies in any color or pattern that strikes my fancy! This is one BEAUTIFUL die. So. Much. Detail. And, once I got my die cutout lined up right on the "punch out tool" that you can purchase along with this die, it worked like a charm! Gone are the days of just white or off-white doilies!
I used purple embossing powder to emboss the button card. It matches perfectly (but is kind of hard to make out in the photos). I used 3 colors of twine by The Twinery on this card: Lilac, Caribbean & the brand new Honeydew.
I had a terrible time truly capturing that deep purple color of the doily. If you live in Kansas, and as much as it pains me to say this, it is the color of K-State! LOL!! And even this Jayhawk fan has to admit that it is a beautiful purple (but PLEASE don't tell my dad I said that or I could be disowned, lol!!).
Thank you for stopping by today!! I hope you have a great day!!
