I have seen a lot of lace being used in the craft world lately, well, actually, for a long time now. I am scared of it's delicateness and it's vintage quality. How on earth do you do justice to lace on a project? I find it near impossible.
We have paper doily's in the kitchen that have a lacy pattern around the edge, I used one of these for the Christmas wreath I made back in December 11. I took another one and decided to put it to use on a card...
I also have these really awesome handmade flowers I received from a crafty friend that I spruced up with some pearl brads from yet another crafty friend :) As I type this I realise I know a lot of crafty people because I also used a strip of REAL lace ribbon, also received from a crafty friend (it was actually part of another gifts packaging...recycling is par for the course in crafting)
The stamp I used on this card was bought for me by my hubby, isn't he too sweet? I love the Victorian look of the image, and stamped and embossed it in gold.
I used scrap paper for the base and pattern of the card, I don't even think it's necessary for me to comment on the enormity of my scrap stash anymore...
I can't quite decide if I like it or not, maybe if I look at it again another day?
Have you played with lace on your projects yet? I'd love to see what you've come up with!
