Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge

It’s the first Friday of the month so time for our special monthly challenge on Just Magnolia.  This month our GDT is the fabulously talented Mindy and she has done a brilliant tutorial on how to frame an image with lace.  It’s super easy to do (unless you try and be a smart Alec like me and decide to take on the whole card and frame it – there’s always one and it’s usually me!!) 

So do pop across to the Just Magnolia blog and take a peek at the tutorial and my fellow DT’s stunning creations and maybe even give it a whirl.

I had to photograph the card on a pink background as the lace frame was not showing up against the white.  Once again I have made an easel card, I really should just make all my cards easels as I love them.  I made the frame by stitching little pleats into a length of lace then stitched the lace in place behind the pink mat before assembling the card.  It was so fiddly but I LOVE the result, I will definitely be doing this again for special cards.

A close up of the front of the card so you can get a better idea of the lace effect.  The gorgeous gorgeous paper is from Dies to Die for – it was in my first DT pack from Tracy.  It’s from the GCD Cloisonné pad – just my kind of paper and colours.  It broke my heart to use them rofl.

The Princess is a Sizzix die that I have had forever, I think it’s perfect for this image (which has been coloured with Distress Inks. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts – I have used 10mm roses, 15mm roses, 5mm rosebuds, 20mm wild roses, 35mm wild rose and all have been spritzed with pearl Glimmer Mist.  The butterfly is the large Martha Stewart butterfly punch and the leaves are Nellie Snellen Floral Branch punch.

I’m entering this card in two other challenges:
Charisma Cardz – Flowers (umm I think I have a flower overload on this card lol)
Paperplay Challenges – Flowers and sparkle
 

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Oh that is very pretty!!

    I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago using black lace

    Wasn't sure about it at first, but it seemed to work well with the Gorjuss gal

    Now I need to try it with the white lace :-)
