I used our Tri-Shutter Card, stamping Birthday Doily in Adirondack Shell Pink on white cardstock for a background. I cut the pieces to fit then started adding all the fun stuff!!

The beautiful Doily Dies are great alone or sponged while still in the die as I did here.

Using Vintage Flourish Pattern, and Recipe Card and Tags, I stamped the verses and stitched frame from Birthday Doily and Sewing

My next card features the Hand Knit set with matching Knitting Basket and Yarn dies.

And…I just thought it needed something ‘hand knit’! I used size 0 needles for my handspun llama, single ply then transferred to toothpicks for the card.

The verse is stamped on the Doily and layered on the new paper, Soulful Stitches Collection. Sew perfect for your stitching and handmade card projects!

Dawn, your Lady has stolen the show here LOL!!! Your cards are gorgeous - love the monochromatic pinks on the first tri-shutter masterpiece, it's just stunning!! and I am soooo in love with the second!! Not only because it's beautiful, but for how creatively you've added the llama yarn. And then there's Lady. Well that precious creature has truly stolen my heart today - what a special baby she is :).
