Background check – layer with a doily or die cut

Hello friends, and welcome to a beautiful new week! Today’s card shares tip #7 for backgrounds in this #vsbackgroundcheck series – layer the focal point with a doily or a die cut.

In this case I layered it with both. The doily at the bottom and I added a circle on top which I die cut from one of the patterned papers. I stamped one of the sentiments on this circle. {I simply love the infinity circle dies from Hero Arts – so many sizes of circles to play with. I find myself reaching for them all the time! They even come in other shapes like hearts. On my wish list for sure!!}

Rest of the card is really simple – adhered some matching patterned paper strips on the side of my top folding card.

Supplies list

All the patterned paper as well the coffee cup die came from Simon Says Stamp Feb 2017 card kit. You can subscribe to this (no obligation) card kit of the month program for $24.95 plus shipping and handling. Kits can also be purchased individually at Simon Says Stamp store for $29.95 plus Shipping and Handling. And you can also buy many of the elements of the kit separately. 

This particular Simon Says Stamp card kit was sold out. But for your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used for these cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product. Wherever available, I have used affiliate links, which means when you make a purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you) which I use to run this blog. I truly appreciate your support! Just so you know I could not find the exact match for the doily I used on this project. So I have linked to the ones which would also work equally well.
