Hi everyone! By now, it's clear that one of the big hits of the last Waffle Flower Craft release have been the absolutely gorgeous doily dies: the square and the circle. They've quickly become a favorite, right? So I thought I would share and idea to get even more mileage from the doily circle die.
I made some industrial engineering inlaid die cutting using the inner portion of the doily. To do this, I first die cut the doily from white cardstock, and carefully trimmed the outer parts. Second, I die cut the doily again from different cardstock colors and saved the negative pieces.
Next, I die cut a circle from a double sided adhesive sheet and adhered it to the back of the doily, so the adhesive face would show in the open areas. This allowed me to easily insert the positive pieces from the doilies I had die cut from colored cardstock.
Once I had this pretty and colorful doily ready I decided to keep the rest of the things simple. I stamped the "Smile" sentiment from Doily Circle stamp set directly onto the doily. Because I stamped on an irregular and "bumpy" surface, I got some gaps in my stamped sentiment. How to fix this? Easy! With a black fine point pen. It's a super easy way to fill in any areas that didn't stamp properly.
Finally, I stamped a banner and a sentiment from the same set on vellum and adhered everything on a piece of grey cardstock that I spiced up a bit by sponging white ink on the edges. I love the "smokey" result, and how much it softens the final result!
Thanks so much for visiting!
