Wisteria Wonder

Wisteria Wonder by Andrea G71

March Stamp Club Card

In the last year or so, you can see doilies everywhere.  From cards to home decor.  Stampin' Up has even gotten in on the fad.  Not only does it have a stamp set that features the doily look in Delicate Doilies.  But it also has its very own Sizzlet die.  You can see the use of both on this card.
Once again, CASEd someone else's card.  You can see where I got my inspiration from HERE.

It is a fairly basic card to make just by looking at the photo and the supply list.

TIP:  When using the Sizzlet Large Paper Doily, create an extra shim to add to your Big Shot sandwich.  I found a thin piece of card board and cut it to the same size as the Big Shot cutting pads.  I placed the sandwich in this order:  Multipurpose Platform (at Tab 1), Cardboard Shim, Cutting Pad, Sizzlet Doily, Cutting Pad.  It felt quite stiff when turning the handle but that is OK.  

Use a paper piercer to poke out the pieces of the doily.  I found that when I added the extra shim, it took less time to poke out the pieces and many of them fell out as I took the doily off of the die.
