Oh My Doily!

Gold Foil Doily

My love for creativity goes deeper than handmade greeting cards.  When I retired 1.3 years ago, I know seems like so long ago, I was encouraged to use my graphic designs skills to make custom invitations (and so much more).  Today I bring you a very simple doily card that was inspired by a custom invitation made a few days ago.

Silver Doily

The card I made for a customer used a doily purchased from a restaurant supplier…the tough job was assembling 100 of them.  But the one I made below is with Stampin’ Up! product that you too can make and make it look elegant to boot!

The Details:

  • The Doily.  Doily’s remind me of my paternal grandmother and my mom and they bring back nostalgia for me and that’s why I love them so much.  When I go to a restaurant they often put a cute doily on a plate and you already know what I do right?  I take it so I can make a card out of it.
  • Use Only One!  Your doily’s will go a long way if you use just one.  Cut it in half and adhere on each side.  It’s okay if it doesn’t close all the way.  I used a tiny glue dot on one side to hold it in place.  You can also use a smaller ribbon and string it through the openings…it’s up to you.
  • Measurements.  Black Cardstock: 3″ x 3″, Red cardstock: 2.75″ x 2.75″, Whisper White cardstock: 2.50″ x 2.50″  Doily measures 3″ in circumference.
