Valentine's Day card using a paper doilie

Hey, everyone! I've been wanting to play with paper doilies for Valentine's Day, but time has been getting away from me. Today I finally sat down and made a card with a doilie. I think doilies are fun!! I tried punching the doilie, but didn't get clean cuts. So, I skipped the punches, but I think if I get time before Valentine's Day, I'll have to try cutting the doilies with our Big Shot dies and see what I can make with them. If you decide to make something with a doilie, I'd love to see it!! You can email me at

How do you like those next pictures? It's what my video taping table looks like after I've made something!! The good news is that this fall we redid my stamping room and now everything has a place. So, it only took 5 minutes to clean up!! That's a good thing!! :)

Well, here is a video of me making the card. Please excuse my sniffles, my allergies started acting up today right before filming this video. If I had to wait until everything was perfect, nothing would get done! So, I went ahead and filmed, but I didn't realize how bad I sounded!! Bear with me!!

Beautiful card! My daughter and I were looking for ideas to make valentine cards using paper doilies, and your site came up. Am I ever pleased! The bird, is that made using the SU punch? I just hosted a SU workshop and I was very tempted to get that punch, but so many other things were calling my name. LOL Now I wish I had bought it! Oh, well, maybe I can borrow my SU coordinator friend's punch. I'm sure she has it. :) Thanks for sharing!
