Decorative Lace Border Creation

Good morning my crafty friends!  I wanted to show some of the ways that the Heartfelt Creations Decorative lace border could be used.  It is a very wide border so it could be limiting because of it's size.  I found this border to be extremely versatile because of its size though.  I used it here by cutting it into two sections and removing the centre area.  I cut the border after the lattice section and matted it with teal card then added some foam mounting to the back.  I added it atop the bottom section of the border for dimension.  The background of the card was stamped with the sentiment then embossed with Labels 24 twice so it overlapped the first one, creating a ring around my sentiment. I lightly inked the area with chipped sapphire to highlight the embossing.   I made several flowers using the spiral flower three die.  The bottom one was made using black glitter card and the top three flowers were made using decorative paper.  I cut the die twice and made three flowers from it by cutting the die rather than spiralling the entire length of the die cut.  I used the leftover piece from the cut to make a small third flower.  I added some black glitter card leaves for balance.  I finished the card with some black rhinestone swirls and paper piercing around the edges.  I hope you like my take on the decorative lace border and flowers.  All for now, Sue x

really beautiful card, Sue - love the extra uses for the dies by cutting them and using bits. As it is with that particular sentiment it would make a wonderful sympathy card.

Thanks for the inspiration,

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
What a change in style and i like it. Still symmetrical and yes singing. Good idea to have a wide boarder in your stash as can cut to any size then. That goes for any die. Good point. You get a star for the one *lol (sorry ex teacher coming out lol). Flowers make this card for me. Brill work. Enjoy alli palli wish was there. Be great fun.

Cornish Emma said...

Teal and black is very striking, i think this colour scheme would also work for a male card. I might 'pinch' that colour scheme for a male 70th birthday card im making, at the moment its still in my head in the planning stage!! Love the glitter flowers on this one, as they look like morning dew drops shining in the sunshine.

Great card, need to get this die, great tip for flowers also

JoanB said...

Hi Sue,
The way you combine colours, textures and patterned papers is wonderful. This along with the way you use your dies - embossing the centre panel twice and cutting down the border instead of using it as it was intended - not only makes your cards really amazing but continues to inspire me every day! Thank you.
Joan B.

Hello Sue,
Love, love, love this card, The Heart Creations Decorative lace border is on my wishlist, you have shown how versatile it is and I would not have thought of cutting in two for really stunning effect. I agree with Cornish Emma about the dew drops in the sun on the black flower. Have a great weekend at AP,will be thinking of you all.

Wellington said...

Now I know this was a card to show off the lace borders, but it's just reminded me that I *still* haven't done the embossinging only trick (without cutting first)...not at home ATM, will try to hold the thought in single brain cell for the next time I have chance to play :)

Hi Sue,

I first thought this card was teal and brown and thought "how lovely" but when I read the text and looked at the second picture realised it was teal and black...however I think I like teal and brown better so it just goes to show how a different colour can change the mood of a card. Have a good day tomorrow, just sorry i won't be there to meet you and see your demos.

Well Nadine is right with this one, it definitely deserves a star. It gets my gold start as I think this is 'practically perfect in every way'.
Yes its a film again, not sure why other than that phrase though. Do you recognise it and know which film it is from?
Well I am feeling a bit naughty today, so if you haven't guessed my clues are:-
Bird head umbrella,
A singing reflection,
A boom every hour,
Tuppence and last but not least
she is 'practically perfect in every way!'............
You must have it by now....well one last clue, and yes it'actually a song.....
'A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go dow..own, medicine go down'
you got it.. it's Mary Poppins. I bet you started singing it then didn't you. lol!! I was.
Have a successful weekend and I hope you get to meet lots of your blogfriends (I know they are dying to meet you from what I read).
Big hugs Linda

Wow wow wow I love this card really like the colours you have used, I have been having a play with my blossom 3 die couldn't get away how you managed to create a different look by cutting tops off and making fringe.

These colours are scrumptious and I tend to forget that you can use the dies to emboss with! Thanks for reminding me - the centre of the card is really something, especially after using the inks to tint the edges.
