Beautiful Materials!

Card design ©Sharon M. Reinhart 2011
Have you ever noticed that card making becomes much easier when you have supplies that look beautiful and tools that also work beautifully. I am often inspired by the supplies themselves. This card was a cinch to make due to the supplies used. The printed paper is from Fab Scraps a company from Africa who were new exhibitor's at CHA in Los Angeles. I had the opportunity of visiting their booth, what a great group of people paired with a great product line. The leaves were generated using a Sizzix die from the flowers, branches & leaves set. The doilies - well doilies seem to be all the rage right now and I have in the past used the ones that you can purchase that are normally found in white, gold or red. The doily on this card is created from a die called a French Pastry Doily, so now we can easily create doilies in any color. This die can be found at Cheery Lynn Designs and they have many styles to choose from.  The flower is petals from a stem found at Michaels and the button is a found one from a bag of buttons.  Hope you enjoy this creation!
Creatively yours,

What a classy card! I wasn't aware of a doily die cut- something else
to add onto my ever growing wish list!

Yes, this seems to be the trend right now. Doilies, of all shapes and sizes. The great part about using a die to create the doily is that you can then create it in any color from a variety of papers.
So glad you liked it!
