Distressed Doily.......

Just had to share the cards I taught yesterday at
my LSS ~ Generations of Memories.
Had a full class and boy did we have fun!!!

The focus of the class was to KEEP IT SIMPLE.....
with an emphasis on The Distressed Doily Die,
along with the Big Shot and Vagabond...mmmmmmm!!

Can I tell you...........I can't get enough of the Distressed Doily Die
.......the versatility and beauty!!

Now.....the bow on the first card may be non~post worthy
....a definite hand~r~outter!!

Distress Tool
TPC Collection ~ Timeless Christmas
Vintage Photo Distress Ink

I just love how just using pieces ~ parts of the doily looks like a wreath!!


How 'bout this one.......by flipping your cut out Distressed Doily
.....you can create a full doily!!!


and last but not least my FAVORITE.......
a little bit of embossing using the Botanicals and Beaded Ribbon Set by Sizzix

SIMPLY ELEGANT!!!


and there you have it!!!
REMEMBER..........to KEEP it SIMPLE!!!

These are the most beautiful Christmas cards I've seen this year. I would've loved to take your class! I am so happy you're designing with the Distressed Doily die -- I can't wait to get my little hands on one!!
