Thinking of You card

This week I made a card for a few challenges. The Mod Squad Challenge Blog wanted us to use a doily, the Simon Says Stamp Blog Wednesday Challenge wanted us to make a Thinking of You card and the Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge wanted to see how we were inspired by the Good Ol' Days.

I was at a conference all weekend so I had to make a quick and easy card. I covered the front of a white card base with some patterned paper by Louise Tiler from a pack called Floral Fantasy. I had a large doily so I cut off a piece to go over a corner of the card and cut a piece of Bazzill Basics cardstock to go over the doily. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment by Recollections with Versa Magic Purple Hydrangea ink and inked the edges.

I used the hummingbird stamp from the Hummingbird set by Hot off the Press to tie in with the patterned paper and fussy cut it. I popped up the hummingbird with some foam dots and the card was finished.

I figured that the doily and the patterned paper made the card look a little like the Good Ol' Days.


  1. Sweet soft and frilly design! Beautiful card. Thanks for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  2. I agree the doily and that designer paper give you a vintage feel! Well done! I think you made a great choice in your hummingbird stamp, ties in so well with your DP. Love the way you cropped the doily and lined the paper's edge, very unique, very pretty! Thanks so much for playing in the Mod Squad Challenge I am Hosting. And on a personal note, my Mom was born in Nova Scotia.....Halifax I believe not far from Black Rock.....if I remember correctly. Immigrated to the States while in High fact! lol

  3. This is so beautiful! I love how the sponging softened the edges and gave just a perfect bit of color to go so well with the designer paper and the doily. Great design!

  4. Very pretty card, I love your pretty details.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
