Black, White and a Sparkly Pink Doily

 Welcome

I was recently asked by a friend to make a card for her, for a 21st she was attending.
I was given the brief that the recipient liked White, Black and Pink.  
This is the result, which elicited a squeal when the recipient opened it, as the colours were identical to her cake!!


I started with layering the black over the white, then laid another white layer before starting to die cut the doily out of sparkle card.  That took two attempts and a lot of exasperation ... I had already decided to trim the side of the doily and use a black strip down the left side.
I then cut the white centre piece with the numbers cut out, and layered over the black over the doily


I sent a photo of it to my customer, and she was happy with it all laid out.

Next day I went to stamp the sentiment, and removed the top white layer and was stunned by the drama that was the pink over the black, so made the card up without the last white layer, and changing the side strip ti white.


Subsequently I white embossed the sentiment on the black


The centre part of the unused die cut was removed and layered over some more black card and placed on the left inside of the card


On the right inside I layered another piece of white card that I had sponged the edges of with Worn Lipstick DI ready for the message.

I am linking this to:
(the sentiment was a 'real' stamp)

Beautiful card Maxine, and the colors are smashing too! Some of these doilies can be frustrating to cut well, and I've found that the metal shim helps tremendously with these fussy intricate dies. Your work certainly paid off because this is lovely. TFS & Hugs
