So, I decided to challenge myself to work with lace. I needed to make a happy engagement card for my uncle. He has spent his 50 years as a bachelor and now has finally found "the one". Hooray! So I set out to make a lovey dovey card and I wanted to use lace.
The lace did not want to behave. It was very unruly, curling and bubbling here, there, everywhere! Since I knew I was putting a panel over top of it, I decided to cheat and put some tape underneath the lace.
I got you good, wild lace! For the panel going over top of it, I knew the lace would be bulky under half. So I double mounted the top portion of the panel with foam tape and single mounted the portion going over top of the lace.
Tah-dah! I used a sparkly marker on pink the hearts of the stamped tree. It looks much sweeter in person.
For a first time using lace, what do you think? I'm not a very frilly girl, so I don't know if I will use this medium again. You never know unless you try though!
