Doily Hello Card by Tessa Wise

Hello!  Tessa Wise has a card for us today featuring the new 6 inch and 4" Gold Doilies.  They are among her favorite new SRM products!

The 6 inch round doily is such a nice size!  Here, Tessa has folded it in half and you can see how it looks on a regular A-2 sized card.

She started with a card base made of kraft cardstock. Tessa then added a panel of patterned paper from the Authentique Adventure Collection 6x6 pad and sewed around the edges with her sewing machine.  Next she added doilies. YUM!  Tessa folded the 6 inch round doily in half to add the look of layers.  She cut the Gold doily in half so it looks like it's wrapped around the white one.  She added a zig zag stitch from the Black Sticker Stitches sheet to the top edge and then sewed along over all the layers with her machine, leaving the end threads long.

The bracketed hello sticker is from the Quick Cards/Hello sticker sheet.  Tessa added it to a vellum label die cut and adhered it to her card.  Next came her embellishments: vellum flowers from the Pen Pals collection by Pink Paislee, the flair button by Jenni Bowlin Studio, and blue sequins from the Urban Market collection by Teresa Collins.  Tessa just loves how well all the elements work together!

Thanks for joining us today!   Hope that we've given you lots of Doily inspiration!  Doilies are just too much fun!
