Flowers and Lace

Hi everyone! I created this card for a magazine call but it wasn't selected so I thought why not share? :-) The base of the card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" folded. I cut a piece of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the base and I embossed with the Floral Tapestry embossing folder and crumpled the edges of a 2" x 5 1/2"  of cardstock. I also lightly inked the edges and over the embossed image with gold ink.


From the vellum I cut an Ornate Frame Diecut and glued it off center of the 2 inch strip of cardstock and I also added three paper banners and a bit of trim on top of the ornate frame diecut. I cut a 2 inch piece of vintage lace and gathered it in the center and tied off to create a bow. Next I made bows in cording and gold metallic thread and glued it along with the lace bow to the vellum diecut. I then layered two cream colored flowers, added leaves I had in my stash, button, Dew Drops and to two pearlized pins to finish off the frame.


I printed from the computer the Happy Mother's Day sentiment, inked the edges and adhered to the upper corner of the card. The card still looked "off balance" to me so I added a bit of lace, button and dew drops to the bottom corner to finally finish off this card. 
The bright side of this card not being selected for the magazine call is I now have a card ready to give when Mother's Day rolls around. :-)
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
