 The most wonderful thing about the blogosphere is all the amazing people we get to meet that we might never have met without the blogs, websites, etc.  I have become a follower to a lady in France who is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I love her artistic style.  Her name is Cecile Ortiz and her site is called Lezards de Cilou.  I found this idea of making the Hello Doily into a 3D embellishment.  She put hers on a card, but I decided to decorate my card box and give it as a gift.

 I inked up my HELLO DOILY stamp with pinks in both ink pads as well as markers.  Where I wanted a specific color in a specific spot, I used the markers and the thump method.  Stamp on whisper white card stock 3 times in 3 different ways of color .

The first layer is just cut out around the edge, the next layer is cut within the first stitching and the third layer is cut just in the middle part of the petals.  See my photo so you understand what I am talking about.

The third layer I not only cut the skinny petals out but also cut them apart and then used glue dots to adhere them onto the top layer, closer together.  By bending and curling, you create the 3D effect.

 I put it on my card box, which is made with one sheet of DSP and holds 4-6 cards plus envies.  I am going to put HELLO DOILY CARDS in the box for my gift.  I added seam binding thru the oval punched handle for a bit of prettiness.

I made four of these to give to my next HELLO DOILY class members.  I used vintage RASPBERRY LEMONADE DSP because it has so many different colors of pinks.  LOVE IT!!

Thanks to CECILE for the idea.  Way to go girl!!

Thanks for stopping by today to visit.  I hope you will stop to visit again soon.

For Try Stampin' on Tuesday, I stretched their sketch a bit to make the circle AND the flower the same part of my design.  Hope that is ok!
