Today’s card is somewhat of a “leftover” from one I did a few days ago with the Blooms & Bliss DSP. The sentiment was stamped and framed and the butterflies were done. But these elements did not make the cut for the card a few days ago. I loved how the framing turned out so well for the sentiment, but decided I needed to design another card to showcase them. I love big, bold sentiments. Sometimes, that is all that you need for a card. This card would have been fine without the butterfly and the doily, but I kept “adding” on and liked what I saw and decided to keep all the embellishments in.
True, there is a lot going on, but I think when you go “dainty” or “vintage”, a lot of layering and embellishment work. And in this design, it is the bow and doily that create the “dainty” look. Yes, this has a lot going on, but I think it all works well together and makes a pretty card. Don’t be afraid to layer on a lot when you go “dainty” or “vintage”!
