I have been working on a second project for a valentine's day craft camp & had the idea to layer the paper doily. I wasn't sure how well this would work, but I had to give it a try & I have to say that I definitely like the results. I layered the doilies after cutting the sections down for each layer and then cut the doily in half creating two halves, one of which I used on this card and another on the card I will be demoing at craft camp. I will post that card tomorrow.
I used the Heart Pressed Letterpress on the Basic Grey without adding any ink as I wanted to just have the image embossed into the paper. You can see this in the picture below. I am really like the pleated ribbon although I have found that when I wrap the ribbon to hide edges it does add a little too much weight. To fix this I cut the ribbon thread and opened the pleat at each end and then wrapped, this makes the card front lay down flatter.
To finish I used the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set & Blossom Punch to create a butterfly, which I added a glimmer brad and attached to the card. I wanted to use a saying that is a little more Valentine's dayish but as I do not have a huge supply of current stamp sets yet that have to do with love, anniversaries, weddings or valentines day I made do with what I have and ordered the Valentine Love stamp set. I should be getting my order this week on Tuesday or Wednesday. Just in time to get my make-n-takes ready for craft camp this weekend.
Hope you all enjoy!
