Doily Friends

Hi friends!  I've got a sweet and feminine card to share with you today. I fell in love with the pretty Whimsy Hearts mini assortment over at Classy Cards 'n Such, and I created this card as soon as I got these mini hearts in my mailbox.

You can get these resin hearts in the assortment package or you can get individual colors. Look under the "Embellish" tab on the last page - you'll see all the Whimsy Hearts there. (I confess, I also got the Whimsy Perfect Petals and I can't wait to put those on some cards!)

For my card today, I used the following products from Classy Cards 'n Such:

French Pastry Doily Die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Cuties 3 die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Whimsy Hearts mini assortment
Dream stamp set (Stampavie)
Medallion Five D-Lites dies (Spellbinders)
Love Letters 6x6 paper pad
Joy Foam Pads small

I started out with a regular A2 card base in a pale pink cardstock and set that aside. I cut a smaller layer of burgundy cardstock and adhered two strips of paper from the Love Letters 6x6 paper pad. I die cut the French Pastry Doily Die from white cardstock, cut that in half, and adhered that to the striped paper. Next, I die cut the Cuties 3 from pale pink paper and added that below the white doily. (FYI - you don't have to make flowers from the Cuties dies - they make awesome borders as well!)

I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the rose paper and I wrapped some pale green ribbon around the card layer between the doily and the Cuties 3 border. Once my bow was secure, I glued this card layer to my pale pink card base.

I used the two dies from the Medallion Five set to cut some burgundy cardstock and some pale pink cardstock. I glued the pale pink medallion piece to the burgundy piece, and then I affixed the green resin Whimsy Heart to the center. The medallion was adhered to my card with some Joy foam pads. Isn't that little green heart a sweet addition to this dainty card?

I love how you used the Cuties Die as a border instead of making a flower. Great way to use a die in another way. Thank you very much for joining us this week at Cheery Lynn Designs.
