Here we are rolling into fall in Central Oregon. Although the weather this week is more of the Indian Summer variety! Our challenge for the next two weeks at Retro Rubber is to use Lace, Ribbon, or Twine.
I decided to go really girlie frilly with a lace bedecked card and a very lacey die cut, along with one of my oldest unmounted stamps.
To create the card I die cut layers of the Heartfelt Creations Ariana Lace from papers of the Blazing Poppy Collection. The sentiment is by Sonlight and most likely purchased in 1996, yes 20 years ago, at the Portland Stamp Convention. It is stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die set was the perfect size and added more lacey details to the card. I used my practice piece to fussy cut the center oval and with an Ink Blusher the edges are inked with more Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy. I like how the embossed sentiment is slightly darker than the inked section. The lace is most likely 30 years old or more and was found in my old sewing supplies. Therm O Web’s Ultra Thin Zips was the perfect solution to adhere the lace to the background cardstock. The card is assembled on an A7 size Kraft card base with dimensional foam adhesive. The final touch is a little jewel from my stash for a flower center.
