Lace Wardrobe Style Card by Julie Lavalette


Hi everyone, Julie here hosting the blog today. 
I thought this week I would showcase how versatile our doilies can be in making beautiful accents and patterns on our craft projects.
The Anastasia border matches the Kiwi doily die perfectly so are great to use together, especially when making a real feature with them, like I am doing with this card.


On the opening of my card you will see the border strips, I love the lace effect. You will also see my doily cut into corners and halved. I matted and layered onto papers.


My flowers were made by cutting them out in same pale green card stock as the swirls and background but I stamped a little gesso onto them and rubbed the edges too with gesso before making them up, to give a shabby feel.


The inside of my card compliments the outside and I embellished with a few pearls to finish.

Cheery Lynn dies used:


Thanks for stopping by today to see my card and Good Luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge
Happy crafting this weekend and I'll see you all next Saturday.

  5. A really beautiful card.

    Probably the most beautiful Cheery Lynne has even displayed. Not overdone with embellishments like most projects are. Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing your artistic talent..

    I'd love to see more clean and simple projects that we could make & tweak!
