Awesome tip with Guest Designer Holly



Hello again!  It's Holly Brown back for another guest designer post today.  I've done something a little different with this card.  It looks clean and simple, right?  Take another look at the red doily underneath the butterfly.  Do you see what I did?  :-)

The Cheery Lynn Designs dies that I've used on this card are:

French Pastry Doily
Small Exotic Butterflies #2 with Angel Wings

I used the whole French Pastry Doily even thought it looks like I only have half of it on here.  I made one cut from the outside edge to the center of the doily.  Then I put my doily on my trusty little Scor-Buddy and scored from the scallops in towards the center.  The doily was then accordian-folded into this little half-rosette that you see here.

This was my first time trying this idea with a doily, and I was thrilled to see that it worked.  Now if I want a full sized rosette, I can do this with two of the doily die cuts and glue them together.  Wouldn't that be fun??  I hope you enjoyed this card today.  I've got some more to show you, so come on back next week.

That's a bit weird! I was just playing with my English Tea Party Doily and wondering if this was a possibility and here you are with the finished article. Great card. Now I know my time will not be wasted and a very lovely effect it is too....

Holly the doily is very striking in red and creative the way you scored and folded it. The butterfly is perfect mounted on it.
