I have seen many stunning cards made with the Hello, Doily stamp, but I believe this may be my very first attempt. Stampers coming for the All-Occasions Stamp-a-Stack this weekend may choose to make this card — simple (I promised 10-minute cards!) but so striking.
It’s the shading that does it. Gentle, patient sponging of color over the embossed doily makes it look three-dimensional. (I think sponging beyond the image helps that effect.) You must remember to wipe the ink off the embossing to make the white further pop — and to keep the ink from making a mess of your fingers.
What took me so long???
