Today I am sharing with you a card for Practical Scrappers. The challenge was to use doilies ten different. I chose to use a doily as a pocket to hold something special for the recipient. In this charge I chose to showcase a gift card but a check or cash or anything else you can think of can easily fit inside the pocket. I also left some room to write a note.
I LOVE how this card came out! When I finished it I had to take a step back and smile. This is not a color combination that I would normally use even though i really like the combo. I like the idea of using doilies as pockets because it keeps the card flat without adding the bulk. Isn't it pretty!! So I cut a doily in half and use one half on the front of the card as a background and the other on the inside of the card as a pocket.
Okay, guys, there you have it. I encourage you to find a new way to use a doily and to get some inspiration from the ladies at Practical Scrappers.
Until next time everybody.
