Doily Love by Shery

Hello, SRM friends! It's Shery Russ and I'm here to share four cards I made that feature SRM's fun doilies! Now, I'm a one layer card girl at heart, but these doilies are so fun that once I started using them, I couldn't stop at just one card :o)

First up is this super simple but elegant looking card. I used a SRM White Heart Lace Doily. I thought it was perfect to use for a love or wedding themed card. I placed the doily on the bottom left corner of the card, trimmed the edges, and rounded the corner. I was after a clean look so I kept the design uncluttered and simple using the white stitches in the Sticker Stitches/ChristmasStickers by the Dozen/Wedding, and Fancy Sentiment/Love.

For card #2, I wanted a clean and graphic look, so I stamped a newsprint stamp on my card base in brown ink and adhered Sticker Stitches/Christmas on either side. I adhered the labels with the fishtails in the Labels by the Dozen/Bright Blank then adhered the 4" white lace doily on top and trimmed it to the edge of the card. Next, I took a large 2.5" white scalloped circle punch piece, added a sentiment from the Fancy Sentiments/Thanks, adhered it onto the doily, and trimmed. I finished the card by adding black stitching from the Sticker Stitches/Black.

As for card #3, I decided to create a fall-themed card so I went with fall colors of yellow, orange and red. I stamped the newsprint and leaves on the card base and added black stitching from the Sticker Stitches/Black. I layered two scalloped circle punched pieces (2.5" and 2") and added a sentiment from the Sentiment/Fall. I cut a 4" white lace doily in half, folded each half, and adhered on the back of either side of the layered punch pieces.

And finally, for card #4, I went with a freestyle collage look and just layered different elements together. The 6" white lace doily was the perfect background for all the diecuts I found in my stash. First I stamped a newsprint background stamp in black ink on the card base and then added white cross-stitch stickers from the Sticker Stitches/Christmas around the edge. I adhered the doily, trimmed it, and then added black cross-stitch stickers. I went through my stash of diecuts and just layered the different elements onto the doily. I used a label from the Labels by the Dozen/Black & White and adhered it on the card base. I finished the card by adding a sentiment from the Sentiment/Thinking of You
