Trying It Again!


Hello guys!  Yes I am trying another laced card to make up for last month's effort.  I am limited to the type of ribbon I am allowed to use, but I have used a wider zigzag this time, showing off more of the background.  I love this one!  I hope it will appeal to more of you this time too.  I started with a flowery background paper in a cream and brown pattern.  I covered it with micro beads for texture, (yes, I am quite addicted to my micro beads and think they make lovely texture for cards!)  Next I cut the top and bottom "lacing" strips using a combination of edgebility dies to achieve this.  I used two inserts together with the scallopy cutting edge.  I added mounting foam to raise these pieces for dimension (and to make the lacing process easier too) and added them to either side of the card.  A quick note here, even though I have used foam pieces for this, because they are seated on to the micro beads, you need to use some Cosmic Shimmer glue for really good adhesion on top of the beads.  Next came the lacing.  I started by attaching the seam binding on the right side to the back of the card and then through my holes, skipping every other one up and down  until I reached the other side.  I tucked the other end behind the card and then added a messy bow and flower on top.  The flower was made using Sam Poole's Button Floral stamp (tutorial for this is on the Creative Expressions website).  Next I stamped my centre focal element using the Justrite Kindness set.  I stamped it using a clear perfect medium pad and clear embossed it over decorative dotty paper.  After I cut it out with the matching Labels 20 die, I added some pearl Nestabling as an accent and cut a dark faux nestie as a mat for it.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a smaller Labels 20 and used a light inking of Antique Linen while in the die.  Pierced the edges to finish it as I usually do.  A quick note, I have started to photograph the new cards that I am making using a ruler in one of the pictures (I won't post the ruler pics) so I will be able to give you card measurements when I start posting those.  There is usually such a lag between when I make the cards, do the shows and post the cards, that I can never recall what size they were and they are rarely still in my possesion by that time to check them!  Today's card was rather large, in the neighborhood of 8" x 8 1/2" in size.  Anyways, I hope that you like this one, as I was kind of fond of it!  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue, this laced card looks much better as it is n ot dominated by the lacing and the lovely background can shine through. Love the button flower.

Morning Sue. I prefer this one. I agree with Pam that the lacing doesn't dominate the card and you can see the rest of this beautiful card. Have a good day. Christine x

GM Sue - I like this better than last months but still think it needs thinner ribbon - sorry! and be counter laced. I hear what you say about being limited in what you use - but we are not! Haven't tried lacing yet but will give it a go.

Good morning Sue,
Love this card and I need to add the ribbon in this style very chic.

Sonia Jones said...

This card is definately nicer than the other laced card. But i'm still not over keen on it. Sorry! I love the background card though and the matching flower is great. Hugs Sonia x

Eemeli said...

Hello Sue. Your card is beautiful. I like the zigzag (I am an engineer so of course these symmetric things are the ones I fancy) and the little pearls around the sentiment look adorable. And of course once again you have nailed it with your flower.

Hugs from Finland, Eemeli

Hi Sue another lovely card and so pleased I got the labels 20 dies. Thank you for putting on the measurements of the card because it is quite difficult to tell.....I wait for them on C&C so I can see them then. Take care Love Michelle xx

marg said...

Hello Sue
Good that the measurements will be included I usually go by the size of the Die and take it from there..I love to see how many Dies you have used on each card . Love this card Sue! and the backing paper colours
Love Marg

Good Morning Sue,
Lovely card, the edge borders are great, I like the ribbon lacing on this card, it all blends in. The other card was too much green for me. Love the flower button.

another fabulous card. Really like the paper used. I loved the other lace up card and I love this one. Never have I been disappointed in what you create.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Karen R said...

I will never be a huge fan of the lacing effect but I like this much better as the ribbon does not take over the card. I love the beaded background and the flower especially.

Gorgeous card really like this one so nice you can see the beautiful background thru the laced ribbon.

Hugs Annx without an "e"

Lizzie said...

Hi Sue
I'm very early this morning lol!
I love this card and the lace borders I like to see different styles to do with the dies.
I'm liking the measurements, as I'm like Marg I go by what die you have used.
Thank you

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Have to admit that I like this one much more than your previous lacey card. I think it's because it is not so fussy. I like the colour scheme and in particular the edge dies - I seem to fit a few of these together often for the edges of my cards as they do go well together.

HiggiSue said...

Not usually.my cup of tea with ribbon lacking but this is gorgeous Sue

Morning Sue,
Loved both of the laced cards and like the idea of beading the background. Will have to have a look at the flower tutorial.

Victoria said...

I love the lacing here. I think the wider space works well and you can see the background. Also the light coloured ribbon is effective. Stunning card.

Sandybee said...

Good morning Sue, now this lacing I really love, it looks pretty without overshadowing the backing paper. Perfect

xx Sandra

Lacelady said...

At least this card looks doable by those of us with less nimble fingers Sue - when you laced the Vintage border, I couldn't believe my eyes!

Debbie Tinks said...

SUE LOVE THIS CARD

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,
I'm not a fan of lacing but this design I don't mind as it is not so dominant. I like that you have made the flower from the same paper as the background and with the topper the whole card looks very elegant.
love from Jackie D

guffie said...

Good morning Sue, what a lovely card i think i prefer this type of laced card as it shows more of the beautiful back ground paper.
And that rose is just scrummie. i love the way your roses look i have tried to get mine to look the same but i must be doing something wrong as they never look as good as yours. well keep up the good work xx gail from eastbourne

Christine Smith said...

Wow this is such an amazing card (as usual)!! I keep seeing your cards everyday on you blog and they really inspire me to make more cards, but I'm stuck at uni doing a chemistry degree with no spare time and no craft stuff, my ideas book is going to jam packed by the time it gets to Christmas and I'll actually have some time to craft again. I hope the next 4 years fly by so I can go back to crafting everyday :D Thank you for all your wonderful inspiration!! :D
Christine

Ruthie said...

A lovely elegant card Sue, but I did smile when you said what ribbon you were 'allowed' to use, I can't imagine anyone taking ribbon away from you.

Carol S. said...

Hi Sue, Yes this is definately a winner in the lacing comp. The background is more open. Love these flowers and they are so easy to do. Another great card. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Hi Sue
Although this is so much nicer than the last one, sorry I'm still not a fan of the lacing. I do like the fact that you can see the background in this and love the micro beads and flower.

Ita said...

Hi Sue Stunning I love the lasing and I did like the last one you did ,the paper is fab and the backing paper is stunning.I think it is a great idea that you are going to do sizes it would be a great help.I know you do not agree with inserts ,bit you do need them at times,it would be helpefull if you did some sampels of a sort of type of inserts?? I am hopeless myself at doing inserts on the computer,what I do is cut some nice paper with one of the dies,then do a verse ,and cut it out with a die to match the ones used to make the card ,it works o.k.
I will not be able to comment on the blog for the next few weeks I am off to the Grand Canaria for some sun,with my sisters hope you are having a good time with your mom.
Regards

Elaine said...

Hi Sue, This is PERFECT, and if the ribbon was any thinner, it would NOT work at all, it comes down from the rose and flows through the card beautifully. Well done. Elaine x

I think this card would look better without the ribbon lacing, but it is still pretty.

I really like this one but would probably have done the ribbon the other way too, like ballet shoes.
Great card

Hi sue love this card and the lacing looks good will definitely have to give it a go!! I must get labels 20,I didn't think I would need them but I do!! Lol love lesley xx

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue,
I'm so glad you are going to be able to give us all some idea of big your actual designs are. Sometimes when I've tried to copy your ideas they don't work as well and I think this is because my base card is too small. Really liked the close up pic of the microbead background it really does show what a difference these can make. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Sue. Ten out of ten for this one. So much better with the lacing as ornamentation and not the focus of the card. That flower is lovely too. Really like this and might even give it a go. Thank you xx.

Hi Sue,
Very stylish indeed. I agree with you that the micro beads add fab texture. I love using them (which is just as well as I bought 2 pots to save on postage and when they arrived they were much bigger pots than I'd imagined they would be! I thought I'd never use them all, but now I'm not so sure ......!)

jordiegirl said...

Very nice Sue.

Can I ask - is it normal for the tan mat to stick to the pink or raspberry plate plus the embossing folder you feed through the Grand Calibur????? I find it rather annoying.

I never had this problem with my little Double Do-XL although the rubber mat for that is of a different composition.

Another lovely card, you can never overdo the micro beads, I love them, and the ribbon bow with the flower is just perfect.

i love the lace up on this one its so different,the flowers look really pretty too

iggy said...

love the colour combo.....the wider spaced lacing is somewhat different.BUT still light & airy. love the flower too. crafty hugs

Abuzz With Creativity said...

Like this card more than last months. It's not as busy & distracting. This is more subtle. The colours are really nice on this one. The other colours were nice too, but not all at once as was a bit heavy. These colours & papers really do compliment each other. I like the laced ribbon. I know your limited in what ribbon you can use, but surely cutting it down the middle could work also if you wanted to lace it both ways?! Only saying as an option as you cut other ribbons. I like this one as it is though. Was thinking more of the other.
My son really enjoyed making my Mums birthday card with me this morning whilst his sister was at nursery. I cut dies, stuck decoupage, inked hearts with my stamps, embossed. Seemed to love it!!! Claire xxx

AnneRD said...

Hi Sue, I think this way of weaving lets the background show through to better advantage. If one only had the wide ribbon, I guess you could always fold it lengthways, and press it to make it narrower for weaving. Anne
