Natural Lace

Good morning everyone! Today I have to share with you the card that I created for a swap on Stampin’ Connection. Take a look:

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Just Believe
Cardstock: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Basic Black Craft
Accessories: Black Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Glimmer Brad, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The card base is Basic Black cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. The next layer is a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that was cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and was stamped with the doily image from Delicate Doilies in Crumb Cake ink. The greeting from Just Believe was stamped in Basic Black ink in the lower right hand corner and this panel was adhered to the card front.

Next a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was cut at 3” x 4 ¼”. Another image from Delicate Doilies was stamped in Crumb Cake ink all over the cardstock to create a background. The Embossing Buddy was rubbed over the cardstock and the final doily image was stamped in Basic Black Craft ink and covered with Black Embossing Powder. After the excess powder was tapped off the Heat Tool was used to melt the embossing powder. The glossy black really stands out from the patterned background nicely. This panel was adhered to a 3 ¼” x 4 ½” piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Next the Paper Piercer was used with the Mat Pack to pierce a hole through the center of the black doily and a Glimmer Brad was added in the center. A piece of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon was tied around the bottom of the panel and the panel was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simple, pretty quick, and elegant. I really love this Delicate Doilies stamp set because it is so easy to make and elegant card, and a fun and funky card with the same stamps and different colors!

Thanks for stopping by!
