Hi Mary. I'm glad you are interested in cardmaking - it's great that you are joining us at StampTV. I'm fairly new here although I have been stamping for 10 years now & I love it! Re the card, the lace does look like a doily, doesn't it? Hope to see your cards soon :-)
Hi Mary - thanks for your kind comments on my card Happy-for-you. I'm not sure if you meant the bottom layer around the focal image? There are 4 layers for the focal image - at the bottom is a piece of lace (the lace was like a banner & I arranged & adhered it (w 1/8" score tape) around the OA paper above it). Next layer is the OA paper, then the bird background is next and on top is a chocolate die-cut piece (cut using 2 Blossom nestabilities dies). Hope I've answered your question. Thanks!
