Things are not always what they appear! When you look at this die set, you may be hard pressed to see what it becomes but that’s why we’re here – bring on the inspiration! We’re so tickled to be introducing a new and unique take on doilies. Please welcome the Dimensional Doilies Collection. Hop through with all of the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team to get a small taste of inspiration as well as see how each has used these new motifs!
Inspiration for Dimensional Doilies
Some of the first dies ever to hit the market were doilies. They gave you a symmetrical base to put your card elements on and they simply frame your creation and draw your eye inward. By now you probably have many flavors of doilies in your stash. These doilies are different. With one pass of the die, three identical motifs are created. These motifs have perforations and slits on each edge. When the perforations are folded and the slits are intersected, it creates a round doily of 6 to nine pieces that has a secondary filigree layer. The texture, dimension and pure femininity they add to a card front is gorgeous.
This collection is full of rims and the ability to create shadow layers, each die gives you several options. Whether you like an intricate layer or the solid layer, the choice is yours!
I’m tickled to introduce all four of the dimensional doilies :-)
I wanted to show the effect when you layer two doilies. It gives a very pleasing depth and dimension and because the doilies are shaped differently, they are easily staggered so that you can see the layers beneath.
I’ve layered two in each card and you can see individual doilies displayed by each Creative Team member.
Here I am showing: S4-1061 Pointed Harmony and S4-1060 Heart Melange
