Paper Doily

Both of these cards were a part of the samples that were shared at our sista retreat last month.  Each card has a different/creative use for the paper doily (a large sizzlit die, 125592).  The top card is the negative image and the bottom card is the actual "punched" piece of cardstock.  My favorite use for this die is a tone on tone card that has just enough pattern, yet it still stands out.  Here are a few tips when using this die.  First I put a piece of cardstock shim on the outside of my "sandwhich" that seems to help "cut" the image better.  Second, once the doily is punched, use your bone folder and curl the doily with it (as though you were curling ribbon) and the pieces will fall out a lot easier.  Both of these tips came from some awesome sistas, thank you!  Sera
