Tuesday Trigger

I absolutely loved this week’s tuesday trigger and couldn’t wait to make my card.

A few days back I tried to make a card with yellow and orange as the color combo but somehow it didn’t go where I wanted it to. I left it half way through. So I was adamant about completing today’s card. It took me around 2 hours to make this card – 1 hour and 50 minutes to design the card and 10 minutes to make it!! I’d a really hard figuring out how to create a big doily using the small ones. After several failed configurations before I found this one that fit the bill! I wish a better red ink Sad smile. The sketch is based on Simply Sketches #1.

I stamped a small doily in orange – this would be the center of my doily. Then stamped the other orange doilies around it. My first attempt – which was directly on the card base was ruined – so I cut out a circle and glued it on top of the ruined stamping Smile Stamped a bigger doily in red on white CS and die cut it using circle nestabilities. Adhered it to the center of the bigger doily using foam dots. Glued rhinestones to the center of all doilies. Stamped the sentiment in orange and the accent in black.

  • Stamps: Maya Road Doilies stamps, Hero Arts Frames and Messages (sentiment and accent)
  • Paper: Papertrey White
  • Others: Versacolor orange, camellia, rhinestones, Brilliance black

I love how mistakes sometimes take the card a step further - at least I find that with my own :) Still never happy when the mistake happens, though!
I like the way the red turned out in the photo - maybe you could try using 2 inks to get the combo you want? I do that a lot.
The little flourish under the sentiment is so sweet - I love your card :)
