I have another Stir Your Stash Saturday for you. First here's the sketch.
I can't seem to stop using the doilies I found in my stash a little while back.
I started with a swirl background in Going Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock trimmed to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8". The edges are inked in Going Gray also. I found this beautiful shimmery charcoal gray cardstock from Core'dinations to use for the backing of the card and ran a small piece through the Big Shot with a dotted folder. I sanded the raised dots to distress it a bit. The bow is some organdy ribbon I had in my humungous stash of ribbon (some day I'll have to show it to you!) which I wrapped around the whole card front. The doily was a white one I inked with Baroque Burgandy using my brayer. Isn't it cool how you still see a little white? This was just glued down to the card on the left over the bow. I punched a 2" circle, inked the edges in going gray and stamped the ornament (from SU's new ornament set). This is popped up in the center of the doily. I added a little stickles to the top & middle of the ornament, around the the doily and 3 dots on the upper right portion of the Core'dinations cardstock. Quickly I added some Martha Stewart glitter to make it show up a little better. Pretty simple card really and it went pretty fast.
