Then I had what my mom would call a brainstorm....which turned out to be more of a drizzle, ha!
Remember when we were kids...we used to make those paper snowflakes by folding white "typewriter" paper, cutting little notches, then unfolding to find an amazing, one-of-a-kind wonder? Well. Apparently the wonder is in a child's eyes, because when I tried it last night - ugh.......no. Not so amazing. Now, that's not to say that I might not try it again - tis the season, right?
So I did the next best thing. I found these 4" doilies which I thought would be perfect! When I brought them home, however, I realized they were too wide (four 4" doilies, 5" wide card....hell-OOO!!!!).So I snipped them in half and proceeded to pleat them to make a cute little skirt! I love how it turned out! There are four half-doiles to make the four scallops on the bottom.
I also wanted to do a monochromatic card with creams and whites, but needed to add chocolate for a little pop. Gotta love a little chocolate, right?
