Paper lace...

Hi, hello!  Norine here, with a couple of die cut cards to share.  You guys.  This Doodled Lace Cover die by Altenew isn't playing fair! It feels like such a cheat to simply die cut some cardstock, slap it on a card front and instantly have a beautiful card!  It should be harder than that!

So, to elevate the amount of effort and thus feel better about myself (wink), after die cutting the complete background panel, I scissor-cut the main floral element from another die cut piece, colored it up with Copics (R01, R20, R32 for the petals and G12, G21, G24 for the leaves) and popped it up on foam tape.  I also die cut the word "hello" from grey card stock with this Pretty Pink Posh Script die, stamped the word "friend" using the Altenew Halftone Hello set, and adhered that strip over the card background.

Then I added some hole-less silver sequins and called it done!

I really fell in love with that single floral element though.  So I made another, simpler card, with a stitched die from MFT, opening where I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Pretty Pink Post Everyday Greetings stamp set, gold heat embossed it, and added the Copic colored, foam-tape-popped-up flower and leaves.  (The Copic colors I used to match the kraft card stock are E40, E42 and E43).

And again, a few sequins to finish it up!

Thanks for stopping by today!
