Delicate Doilies and FTL148 sketch

Can a card make you happy? This one makes me happy. I don't know if it is the cheerful Calypso Coral color (one of the new In Colors) or the cute little birdie on the sentiment but it just makes me smile!

I usually start my design with a card layout, such as this one from the Clean and Simple site - FTL148. Then I choose the stamp set to work with the layout. In this case, I needed a circular stamp image and Delicate Doilies is full of those!

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • When using a card sketch, try rotating it or flipping it to suit your needs.
  • Stamp with the Doily stamp and Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White cardstock, then stamp again without re-inking. This lighter image will allow the sentiment to show up clearly.
  • Trim a single doily from the Flirtatious specialty paper. Trim out the center of the doily where it will be covered by the stamped image. Save it for another project!
  • Use a Calypso Coral marker or a blender pen to color in the little birdie.
