Card – Ombre Lace
One of the hottest trends in the crafting and fashion industry as of late is the use of gradients –slow change in color, or emphasis on ombre-the graduation of color, usually in a monochromatic tone. I want to show you an easy clean and simple, yet sophisticated card that highlights the trend with the help of a hot ticket beautiful May Arts product, crocheted lace.
You’ll need just a few supplies:
- ~2 feet May Arts Crochet Lace in White 361-58-01
- Distress Ink
- Double Sided Adhesive
To start, create your gradation/ombre by applying two colors distress ink from a similar color family onto a clear acrylic block, spritz water and rest your cardstock on top. Slowly lift your paper and allow to dry, then trim the panel to size. (4” wide)
You’ll need to divide the lace by cutting the top and connecting threads so you are left with a delicate, yet solid pattern. Trim the graduated color strips to the width of your lace.
Next, adhere the lace to each strip using double sided adhesive.
Adhere each lace wrapped strip to the card base with more double sided adhesive, being careful to layer the strips in a graduated fashion. Finish your card with a stamped sentiment and embellishments like rhinestones for an elegant card.
