Neat & Tangled January Guest Designer - Doily Die SIX Ways

Hi Folks! My final guest design post is up on the Neat & Tangled blog! I've been eyeing the gorgeous Doily Envelope Die for awhile now, thanks in part to the amazing Kate who uses it often to wrap her multi-dimensional creations, and have been so anxious to try it out.

For my final post I came up with SIX different ways to use this die (not including two bonus cards that I threw in)!  

I'm sharing all the details, tips and tricks on the Neat & Tangled blog, but I couldn't help but wanting to share a photo of each card here too.

1) Make an envelope, as it was intended. 

2) Make a square doily with the two large flaps.

3) Use the doily as a stencil.

This next card uses a similar technique of covering a portion of the card with the doily to use as a stencil and brush ink through. Since it's a similar idea, I didn't count it as a different way to use the die, so let's consider it a bonus card!

4) Search for other elements in the lace to highlight.

5) Use the smaller doily flap as a topper for your card.

6) Use two of the smaller doily flaps to create a square panel.

7) Use the doily to outline any size card. This card was featured in last week's post, so I didn't really count it in my six ways to use the doily die, but thought I'd still mention it since it's a different idea.

Well that's a wrap! Both for my Doily Envelope cards, and for my January guest designing. Sure hope you liked the ideas, and maybe were inspired to look at your supplies in a way they weren't intended to be used! Be sure to stop by the Neat & Tangled blog for all the commentary, and how-to photos, especially with making the square doilies.

Many thanks to Miriam and Neat & Tangled for inviting me to share my projects with you this month. It's sure been a treat playing with these wonderful stamps and dies!

Thanks for stopping by!
