Lacy Bridal Card
Hi everyone. Vera here today. I love making CAS card, but sometime I want my card to also have that extra texture. So, for today I decided to make a lacy bridal card.
To make this card I am using Core’dinations cardstock and Becky Oehlers Stamp (for Gina K. Designs) I Do! set. The beautiful lace is from May Arts (390-38-09) and it is one of my favorite lace. It’s soft and so pretty.
To make the lace panel, I first cut a panel from cardstock. Then I glued in the lace one layer at a time, starting from the bottom to the top. For some extra movement & texture, I only put glue (Tombow Liquid Adhesive works awesome for this) on the top part of the lace and leave rest adhesive free. It makes me think of the ruffle or lace layers that we often find on a wedding gown.
After the panel is covered, carefully trim the lace on both side of the panel, then layered the panel with a slightly larger panel. Adhere a strip of lace to the card and then add the lace panel on top of it.
Stamp the wedding gown, fussy cut it, and adhere to the lace panel. Finished the card by stamping the sentiment.
Simple, clean, yet plenty of texture. I already gave this card away, so I can’t make any change to it, but if you want to take it a step further, you can add more detailed embellishment by adding tiny pearl stickers on to enhance the bottom of the wedding gown or by the sentiment.
I hope you like today’s card and be inspired to use more lace in your projects. Also, in case you didn’t know, I am also running Caring Hearts Card Drive. I am collecting holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes. May Arts is one of the company that offer generous prizes for this card drive. I hope you will consider to send in some cards. For details please check out Caring Hearts Card Drive post. Thank you so much for stopping by here at May Arts.
