Lacy Doily

Unconventional Valentine's Day card, you say? 
Stand OUT and ABOVE the crowd!!

With the aide of my Big Shot this Lacy Brochade and Large Doily card is given a ticket for being sooooo cute
(by the That's the Ticket stamp set from the Spring Mini)!

Starting with a Long Cut Rich Razzleberry card (cut at the top of a standard card stock to create a long 4-1/4" top opening card) I utilized the Big Shot and the Lacy Brocade Textrued Impressions Embossing Folder (from the Holiday Mini and still offered in the Spring Mini!) for this lovely background. 

**Remember ~ when using a large textured background embossing folder, like this, it will shrink up the front of a card - so folding the card after and boning it will allow for the edges to match. 

The That's the Ticket stamp set from the Spring Mini is ideal as it fits in the Ticket Duo Builder paper punch is great as it pops out this image with ease!  Stamping the sentiments with Rich Razzleberry ink on the Pink Pirouette paper is lovely.  The scrolled pattern on these two tickets fit with the flow of the card.  Stampin' Dimensional adhesive raises it up while holding it to the textured background. 

The Large Doily from the Big Shot is fun and has a great color combo of Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade comes from the Florald District Designer Series Paper.  I love the paper before and after the punched Large Doily.  Mini Glue Dots roll up and fit in the little strips in the pattern... it's strong enough, too, to hold onto the textured background!

Tie it up with a bow - or a pearl - in this case.  The Large Pearl from the Basic Jewels adhesive backed Pearl Collection fits in the center of the Large Doily like a button thru a hole.  The additional strung pearls were cut apart from the longer strip of pearls (there are three long strips of connected pearls to each packet) and fill in at the corner.

Thanks to the LNSChallenge of Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and Lucky Limeade inspired this elegant card!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
