Doily Decoupage

Morning everyone. Today, I am sharing a decoupage card I made for the launch of Sara's Vintage Tea Party collection. I've used the pad, which is packed with design all in coordinating colours. I have coupled this with a sentiment and a die from the collection. 

I made sure that when I used the paper around the decoupage elements I was selective, to get the most from the pad, I didn't want to waste a single part.

For this card you will need:
Centura Pearl Ivory card base
Centura Pearl Pink (lights collection)
Centura Pearl Mint (lights collection)
Vintage Doily Die
Tea-riffic Sentiment dies
Paper pad

Step 1: Take your chosen paper, you will need  one full sheet for the base. Take the same design from 2 other sheets, carefully cut out. Cut the sentiment and the Doily from the mint card. Cut the doily in half and secure on the edge of your paper. (see photo)

Step 2: Shape the elements with a ball tool on a foam mat. Layer your decoupage onto the design, using 3D glue gel. Add your sentiment to the centre. Layer this onto your pink Centura Pearl with Tacky glue, then mount onto your card base.

Many thanks for taking the time to visit today. I hope you have enjoyed the short tutorial I have shared for this card. It really is a lovely way of showing off the designs from the paper pads.

Later today I have got the 3rd part of my flower embellishment series on the Hochanda Blog. Today I am sharing roses using clay. I do hope you will take a look and hopefully add your comments. I would like to make the Flower Embellishment's a monthly feature, but without the support to show that it's popular, it might not happen. 

Thank you so much. For now, Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
