Small Square Doily

I was asked to create some cards for the latest copy of Die-cutting Essentials, I was sent a Cheery Lynn Designs Square Doily Die and asked to create six projects.

For this card I used the smaller die from the set and some papers from the Crafter’s Companion Downton Abbey collection.


I alternated two different colours of card stock and used foam tape to add dimension.


I created the sentiment with a die from the Sara Davies Birthday Party Signature Collection.



Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

You were given a difficult task Pauline, love this card and the papers you used

Diana said...

I totally love this one!
I am wondering how it looks when you use black and a bright color in the back. Just like....uh.... forget the English name of it..... the windows of churches and so....
You know what I mean.
