Beautiful Doily Dies

Hi everyone!
Today I'm sharing a trio of cards using the new Doily Dies from Tonic Studios. I've been waiting ages for some doilies to come out and was so happy when the launch landed on my door last month.

I love doilies and they really are going to be a staple in my die collection as they are perfect additions for cards, tags and projects! Whether they're your focal point or used as an accent.

To Make
The cards are all a2 size or 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches.
  1. Cut 6 panels of Neenah Sand Cardstock - 3 panels at 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches and 3 at 5 inches by 3.75 inches. 
  2. Use your Platinum Embellishment Mousse with a small round finger dauber to make circles on all 6 panels. 
  3. Using your ditty stamps, stamp random patterns on coloured Craft Perfect Cardstock in matching ink colours (pink, blue, yellow) and then die cut with one of the outer doily dies in each colour. 
  4. Die cut 3 doilies with Craft Perfect Media Card
  5. Cut out 2 sentiments from your ideology book and mat and layer them.
  6. Add Nuvo drops to a non-stick craft mat and let dry for 24 hours. 
You can see the subtle effect the stamps have, but I do think the overall presentation is much nicer with added details such as these. 
Assemble all your above items, along with a CWC enjoy sentiment and some polka dot burlap ribbon. It's so much easier to add your Nuvo Drops once they've dried on a non-stick craft mat. There are never any mistakes and you can play with placement before adding a tiny bit of glue and sticking down. 
I really like this trio as a set as they compliment each other well but here are the cards individually, which are just as pretty on their own. 
 Card 1 uses my favourite 'Always' Script Sentiment.
For Card 2 the CWC 'Enjoy' sentiment matched perfectly with the Craft Perfect Paper. 
And Card 3 uses the awesome Will's Hand 'Blessed' sentiment. 
I really like these doily dies, they're so pretty delicate. 
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit my blog. I really enjoy reading your comments and I'd love to know what you think. 
Hoping to pop a few more blog on this week, so until then...
Lots of love and hugs
