Having fun on a Sunday afternoon – should be out in the garden


These examples are all done using as a base the papers from the French Garden Collection Cardmakers Pack.  They are 144x144mm square.  The majority of the centre pieces are also punched from the Cardmakers Pack.

For these projects, I am using a small round doily with a 10cm outside diameter & a 60cm diameter centre.  This doily is perfect for using a 3″ round or 3″ scallop punch for creating a centre out of patterned paper, transparency, plain cardstock or whatever you want your background to be. The doily will then have a beautiful design around the background.  Foam mounts are essential to create each of the layers

The originator of the Embellished Doily is Christine Middlecamp –  http://retrospection.typepad.com

Hi – Welcome to my new blog & thanks to Cathy for nagging me about it.
