Dear Doily

Not sure how I feel about the name of this bundle of products, Dear Doily (Dear Doily stamp set and the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies)  but I am sure how I feel about the bundle.  It is beautiful.  Here is my first play with the bundle which was inspired by the sample in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.


I love the background created by die cutting the doily dies 4 times.  It takes a little time to cut the die 4 times but the results were worth it.  The flower and sentiment are both in the Dear Doily stamp set. I colored the stem using an Old Olive marker  and the flower with a Real Red marker.  I did stamp the flower twice to add more red to the card.  The flower was cut out using the Doily Builder Thinlits. The red bow is also a die in the Doily Builder Thinlits.  Perfect for when you do not want to tie a tiny bow.


I also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits to cut out the frame and the Whisper White piece.  Those framelits are the best!  I would say they are a definite must have.  I wanted to have a double stitched Real Red frame so I used 2 framelits to cut it out.



I cut the Whisper White using the smaller rectangle and fit it in the frame for the completed piece.


Love that there are options!  

Below my signature I have a list of all the products I used to create this card.  The products are already linked to my online store so it is easier for you to shop!
