Last month I visited my family. We had a beautiful excuse - a baby's naming day. You can guess from the photo, the baby's name is Vanessa. I bought for her Vanessa Bell rose bush (the rose is named after Virginia Woolf's sister, just in case you are wondering). I hope Vanessa will admire this plant as she will grow.
Oh, I am not ready for the Dear Doily to be retired and gone!
Back in February, the very talented Emma Goddard/Coastal Crafter made a beautiful card and I CASEd (CopyAndSelectivelyEdit) it to my needs. This is the result. What do you think?
It's a Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green combination complimented with embossing paste and dazzling diamond glitter and finished off with silver foil sheet cutouts.
I made the doily with Doily Builder dies. It's cut from shimmery white paper and it's coloured with an aqua paint dipped in ink. When dried it was run through the big shot with the subtle embossing folder. This gave the doily a beautiful texture and it flattened it perfectly.
The background on the original card made by Emma was created with shimmery white embossing paste. I don't have it so I used just white paste and while still wet I sprinkled it with some glitter. The template for the paste application was cut with the dies as well.
Dear Doily Builder dies together with a corresponding set are retiring and won't be available in the new catalogue that is coming out in June. So if you love it, grab it now. Either from the shopping list links a bit lower down in this post or click this image to check all the retiring product.
