Hi fellow crafters, it's JULIE here today. This week I am sharing a tutorial on my Lollipop card and I hope it inspires you to make one with all the gorgeous doily dies we have here at Cheery Lynn Designs.
I decided to make my Lollipop card a 3D design and concertina my doily, so I started by cutting out 5 doilies and shading with some ink at the edges. You will notice in the photo I cut half way into my doilies and scored down the sections to fold.
I then glued all my doilies together to form my rosette shape, gluing on to co-ordinating Angel Wing. The diameter of my rosette shape measures approx 5.5 inches and approx 3/4 inches in depth.
Next I added several layers of foam tape to the centre so my topper would have stability when I glued in place.
My topper in place as seen here.
I cut out another Angel Wing Doily decorating it to complement the front and drop shadowed my Thank You sentiment to make it pop.
I held my straw in place on my decorated back panel with some extra strong tape.
I used a fast drying glue to adhere the front to the back, holding in place until it gripped.
My Flourish was embossed with a Shabby Pale Green shade. Adding on my flowers and leaves.
My paper tassels were made by recycling bead ends from an old necklace and using my Cutie Fringe die strip.
Finishing off with some small flowers and pearls.
