Lace Doily Meets Cards

Just playing around ... with paper lace circles and some pretty papers. This set of cards is so so so so simple, yet so so so so elegant. That is four (4) so's! Of course, Papertrey stamps and dies make everything easier, matchy matchy-ier, and funner (I'm sure those are real words!). I did mix in a few Walzingmouse Stamps too. Love love love.
The Get Well Wishes sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Walzingmouse - it's a real "go to" stamp set. I used Papertrey's Fillable Frames #4 die and matching stamp border, then overstamped the entire label with a misc. french script background stamp, using Smokey Grey ink by Papertry. So soft and pretty, especially with the button accents!
Have you tried Papertrey's Mat Stack collection of matching dies and coordinating stamp sets? They make e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g better! This card uses Mat Stack 1 (my personal fav)! Looks great on the lace doily!
Oh be still my heart --- this flower says love all over it! I used Beautiful Blooms II #1 and die cut several flowers, and once again I overstamped it with french script using smokey grey ink. Subtle. Nice. Leaves are from the Dahlia die and I simply hand-drew some lines on the leaves once they were cut out. The nice little squiggles are from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases (didn't I tell you it's a great go-to set!?) These cards are bigger than normal (5x5) and they fit perfectly inside the plastic box that your Papertrey Stamps are packaged and delivered to you in (save them!). I made two of each card, and put them with coordinating envelopes all inside the pretty case, for a great gift set. Have a great day!
