Two Cards by Gerry van Gent

Happy Sunday Sizzix friends!
I created two cards for my post today and I hope
you will enjoy them as I enjoy making them.

My first card is using two types of Sizzix doilies - Vintage and Lovely doilies
which I like very much. Basically my card is a pure layering of
all the round shapes and adding small touches :-)

658506 Sizzix Sizzlits Vintage Doily 
658605 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Doilies, Lovely 
657177 Sizzix Sizzlits Dec. Strip Die Mini Paper Rosettes

When the small rosette was completely ready I distressed the edges with blue Chalk Edger Pad.
Then I added on top a small die-cut Lovely doily. After that I added the twine bow en
finished with a circle from the pattern paper.

I cut the vintage small doily in two and I used only half to decorate the title.

I love looking through all my pattern papers with gorgeous elements,
flowers, phrases, etc. For this card the text I saw on one of those papers
(Prima Marketing, Madeline) made me think at once of the round die from
Snowflake Frame set. I tried it and it fit perfectly. Then I decorated the
circle with a Vintage doily and this is how I began creating this card.

The two hearts were die-cut from the Love Set. They are part of the word "LOVE".
I sanded the edges and adhered with a foam square pad.
