I just used paper doilies from the dollar store and inexpensive watercolour paint. Just dab a few colours of paint onto the doily and let dry. It gives such a pretty delicate look, especially if you use lots of water and not too much paint. Reds and pinks and purples work well together, or yellows and oranges, or greens and blue.
Stamp the quote onto a piece of white cardstock and cut out with an Elizabeth Crafts Designs stitched circle die. They are the perfect size to fit in the middle of the doily.
To make the card base, I cut a folded circle just slightly smaller than the doily. Just fold a piece of white cardstock in half, trace a circle (I used a container lid of an appropriate size) so that one edge of the circle is on the fold. Adhere your doily and add a ribbon bow. Done! Thanks for dropping by, Connie
