Lace and Pearls - DT Post

Today's "DT Post Card"

For this weeks challenge you need to use pearls and lace!  I typically don't use lace much.  I find it bulks up the cards and requires more postage for mailing.  However, lace is beautiful and nice to add for sympathy cards and wedding cards especially!

I started with some white paper and embossed it with an embossing folder.  I love these little dots.  The folder is called Swiss dots.  I will use this as my background.  I wrapped the lace around the white embossed background.  The card base I choose was a green background and from the left over papers, I punched a little border to cover the top of the lace.  I used a Martha Stewart punch and punched this strip.  I then attached that around the white embossed background as well and then adhered it down to the green card base.  I love these layers.

From the same green card stock I used some spellbinders dies to cut out the scalloped background die and then the image.  I used some thin pop dots to put this up on the card mat.  I felt it needed something so I added the pearls in the middle of the flower, the bow, and the pearls to the top right corder of the card.

This card could be used for many different occasions.  I love the look of the lace and pearls together.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!
