A Perfectly Penned Doily Birthday

Stampin' Up! Hello Doily With Perfectly Penned Greeting

Well ... Hellooooo Doily! Now here's a rubber stamp you can have hours of fun with. Dress it up, dress it down, emboss it, use the entire image or just a portion. It's ALL good!

I've seen several gorgeous greeting cards with the Hello, Doily stamp (by Stampin' Up!) using the emboss resist technique, and naturally I had to give it a go as well. I love how it turned out and adore the color combo for this card.  What about YOU? I'd love to know what YOU think in the comments below.

Stampin' Up! Hello Doily Stamp Emboss Resist Technique

The doily was stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock using VersaMark and then heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder. Next I sponged Blushing Bride over most of the embossed area, followed by Soft Suede around the edges of the doily and right on out over the entire piece of card stock. This was mounted to a layer of Soft Suede card stock and tied with Blushing Bride Ribbon with a little wisp of Chantilly Crochet Trim.

Happy Birthday Greeting Perfectly Penned by Stampin' Up!

For the Perfectly Penned greeting, I stamped with Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock and lightly sponged Blushing Bride around the edges. This was mounted on a layer of Blushing Bride card stock cropped at one end with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Both layers got the royal "banner flag" treatment before being perched on the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For that finishing touch, a couple of Basic Pearls nestle right in to wish a special someone a perfectly sweet birthday! 

Have a PERFECTLY wonderful day!
xoxo
