Pretty Doily makes for a Pretty Valentine

I'm not a very girlie girl, but I cannot resist playing with doilies on some of my traditional Valentines this year.  I wrote an article about some of the prettiest examplesI've seen on many trendy projects for Paper Crafter's Library this week and just had to create a project of my own to share with you.  

For my card above, I pulled out a pre-made doily.  What I have on hand is just some ones I found at the grocery store that are really intended for food, but on a card, I think that's just fine, too!   The penguin from Purple Onion Designs is super cute... and the new Stampin' Up Word Bubbles dies and matching sentiment set pulled it all together.

I made another version of this card that is just slightly less girlie... No doily and with a blue color scheme.  Not intended, but I guess seeing the two together, I have a his & hers set!  For the blue version I couldn't resist a few sequins...check it out:

Have a very Happy Valentines Day and hope to see your projects posted soon, too!


  1. OMGosh, both cards are adorable! Love that penguin too!

  2. Both of these are wonderful! Love that you showed how a few adjustments made two very different cards!
