For this card I took the My Favorite Things Mini Delicate Doilies and placed them randomly on the paper and embossed them. I had to do this a couple of time to cover the rectangle. At first I just added a strip of teal for the sentiment, but I didn’t like the way it looked, so I die cut one of the doilies, backed it with white, and added it to the right of the sentiment.

This is the way the card looked before adding the small cutout doilie.
This is the last card I made with the Frantic Stamper Woven Ribbons Card Panel die. I love the plaid paper in the pattern. I used Copic Markers to make a ombre look to the birthday die cut, paired it with some Lawn Fawn Party Balloons and really liked the way it turned out.

I think this die from Frantic Stamper creates a background that looks like a beautiful quilt. I played around with this quite a bit. At first I didn’t like the hot pink and purple together until I finally changed the patterned paper sections. The flowers in that paper are so similar to Altenew’s Rose Flurries 3D dies that I decided to add a flower in the lower left corner.
Who would have thunk that two young women from church, with birthdays in the same month, both with blond hair, would both have yellow as their favorite color. I really try and match the hairstyle of the girls to the image that is used.
I love Altenew layering stamps. They create such beautiful flowers and you are unlimited in the color combinations you can use. I think this soft orange turned out so pretty and I love the Little Be Frame with the dotted outline.
