Ornamental Doily Shaped Card/ Spellblogging for Spellbinders

Hello there! 
Thank you for joining me for another Spellblogging post for Spellbinders

I've just received a lovely new Nestabilities set called Ornamental Doily
 oh my!  it is sooooo pretty!

I decided to try using the largest of the dies in the set to create the actual card, just to show off the delicate shape and pattern, and because the little 'points'' in the outer edge looked just a little like the feet of one of those vintage ornate silver photo frames. 
I also wanted to use another of the flowers I shared the other week - though I did end up making two more of the same type to go with it.

There are three dies in the Nestabilities Ornamental Doily Etched Dies
set;  I used the largest to create the card itself; the base is cut from my usual 300gsm cardstock and hinged about 1cm from the top. Then I cut the doily again in white Bazzill, which was adhered carefully to the base making sure all the 'holes' matched.

 I used the same card and the middle sized die for the piece behind the three flowers - this was inked in the same peachy pink colour used to edge the flowers and also colour the leafy swirls, stamped sentiment and the mat behind it;
There are also some peachy pink pearls for the flower centres and some deeper peachy organza ribbon for the double bow
The third of the dies is the little finial piece on the sentiment tag.  It matches the design on the large doily so would look beautiful cut lots of times and fixed in each of the curves with some dimensional tape or glue behind.

Die D-Lites Etched Dies

from Tiny Sentiments (Happy Grams #3) by Tammy Tutterow 

As mentioned, I made another 2 flowers in white card. One is slightly bigger than the original from a couple of weeks ago, and the other is smaller.  I used some ink of a small piece of old baby-wipe to add a little colour to the curled petals.
 Each petal is curled around a bamboo skewer to get the shapes, then all the sizes glued 'inside' each other together to get something like a dahlia

Well, that's all for today, so thanks for visiting, if you click on This Link  you'll find yourself at the Spellbinders store and explore the huge array of dies, stamps, machines and so much more!

Happy Crafting
