SSINKspiration Doilies and Lace: Basket of Birthday Wishes

Good morning!  We are having a wonderful holiday and are now in Williamsburg for a little getaway, Christmas Town was last night and today we're off to explore Colonial Williamsburg.  Before we head out I wanted to share this pretty birthday card I made that uses doilies and lace which the SSINKspiration designers are using to make fun cards today.  I needed a birthday card so decided to add a little coloring with the Stampin' Blends and a mix of Christmas DSP for this very non-Christmasy card.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock as a mat for the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (several of the prints in this package are versatile can be used for other occasions.)

For the main stamped image I used the Basket of Wishes stamp set and stamped in Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock to make this pretty succulent basket and then colored it in using Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends.  After coloring I cut the image out using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes framelits.  Before attaching to the cardfront I added a Silver Metallic Doily and some Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim to peek out the sides and dimensionals helped pop up the stamped piece.

The final touch is the greeting, which is from the same stamp set and was stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and then cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (I used the square die and cut it twice to get the rectangular shape with stitching all around.

I have to say, these Stampin' Blends are so great to color with, and super easy, I'm hoping we get additional colors soon.  And it's great to use some Christmas products up on non-Christmas cards to help reduce by DSP stash (I'm not even admitting how much I have, haha!!)  Make sure to check out the other design teams cards and see what you can create using the great doilies and lace embellishments we have!
