Practical Scrapper Project - Doilies

Hi Everyone,

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.
