My Attempt At A Cluttered Card

Over at the Silhouette Plus Forum there is a challenge for making a  cluttered card using a doily that you have designed. Luckily Doodlingdebbie has a fabulous video for how to do that. I was surprised at how easy it is to do so don't be surprised if in the future you see more doilies used. Here is my card.
For this card I cut a rectangle out with rounded corners. I then brushed gold paint onto my embossing folder. I used the full size folder from Sizzix's Best Friend embossing set. I used a flower file to make my doily. I painted it with Perfect Pearl and pearl watercolor paint. The angel was left over from a bunch I printed and cut for my sister. The flowers were cut out for a previous project and I changed my mind. They were painted with pearl watercolor paint. The gem ribbon I bought on sale a long time ago. It was suppose to be adhesive backed but I discovered that I have to use glue to adhere it.

Now my faithful readers I must inform you that I will not be crafting for about six weeks.  I'm in the process of getting ready to move. I'm excited because I'll have a separate room for crafting. It will be fun to organize things and decorate a new place.I'll try as soon as possible to start crafting again and sharing with you my creations and frugal tips.

Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.


  1. Nice doily, Myoriah & I love the varying colour tones you have achieved too.

  2. Best of luck with the move! Sounds like you found a great place if it includes a spot for crafting. I think it's nice to take breaks from time to time and I bet that getting all your supplies set up and unpacked will give you an even bigger burst of creativity! :)

    What a great card. The doilie intriques me. Must see how to do it.
    I am excited for you to have your own crafting room.
    Hope all goes smoothly for you with the move.

  4. This is beautiful. I love the "cluttered" look. The doily is so pretty. The colours are so beautiful too. Good luck with the move.

  5. Very pretty. The angle baby is so darling and using the doily background really adds to the over all effects. Thank you for sharing.
