Lace Card - by Sioux Jenneys

Hi Sioux here!

The world is spinning faster each day and all of a sudden it's my turn again!!!

Today I'm sharing a card :)


1. Take a creased cream coloured long tall card (74 x 210mm) and using the T!m Styled Label Die cut a decorative top in it.

2. Stamp the Lacy Border in 3 different inks onto card....I used Distress Ink Scattered Straw Archival Crimson and Adirondack Latte....for no other reason than liking the colour combo ;)
3. Cut out all three and colour the edges a little with Distress Ink Tattered Rose and at the same time edge the card with this too dragging some over the entire surface.....stick the lace borders to the card using double sided tape.

4. Cut a shield shape from the T!m Regal Crest Die and stamp with the Baroque Background using Adirondack Pool

.....I wanted a very light colour here so this is actually a third stamping of the image!
5. Stamp the T!m sentiment from the Purely Random Plate in Versafine Onyx Black

....I particularly like this ink for detailed image and sentiment stamps ;)

6. Colour the edges with a little more Pool and Tattered Rose....edge with a gold pen and add some gorgeous Prima Pearls.

7. I was going to use some of the printed twill that has music on for the final embellishment but at the moment it is out of stock (it will be back soon no doubt) so I used some of the plain twill and stamped the Music Plate onto it instead.....love it!

...there is a way round most things I find ;) ! LOL


I hope you liked the card :)

See you soon!
xoxo Artyjen
