Doilies and Christmas Ornaments
Just a quick post today. I'm busy getting ready for ..... my Christmas Stamp a Stack, Stamp Club next week, Ashley's visit next 2 weeks, Thanksgiving ..... the list doesn't stop!! Now I know why we had ham sandwiches for dinner tonight!! No time to cook!!
So, I had this card on my desk and forgot to share with you. It came together really simply. I haven't used the Doily Die much but I think I've figured out the trick so I'll be using it more often. I was having a hard time getting it to punch out and then had all those little "chads" to punch out. But I've discovered that If I use 3 vellum shims when running it through the Big Shot, I don't have too much trouble with it. Every machine is a little different so you might have to experiment to see what works for you. Anyway, back to the card ... the red circle is punched out and embossed with the Polka Dot embossing folder. The ornament is from the Delightful Decorations stamp set (before I bought the Ornament Keepsakes). Season's Greetings is from Curly Cute.
Have a great weekend! I probably won't be posting since we are driving to Atlanta Saturday to pick Ashley up after her conference.
