Vintage Vogue meets Paper Lace

Vintage Vogue is one of my new all time favourite stamp sets!  I love this paper lace too, I first saw it on Kimberly's blog, StampingbytheSea. She has a fabulous video on how to make it. 

I love the idea of making your own paper lace to match any project, I'm going to try some of my other border punches and see how it looks...I don't know that you can top the look of the eyelet border punch though!

First step to this card was to wheel the Very Vintage across the top of the card in Versamark, then I gold embossed it.

I stamped the flowers with Versamark, then clear embossed them and sponged the Close to Cocoa ink all over them before I cut them out.  This simple technique gives it a soft look as well as aging it a bit while showing off the details of the flowers.  I shaped the flower petals with my fingers and added a half back pearl to the centre.

Don't worry about the edging of your paper lace, you'll be covering it up with ribbon, so it will look perfect no matter what!

Here's what I used:
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Old Olive (Leaves)
Ink: My favourite (!) Close to Cocoa, Versamark
Stamp sets:  Very Vintage Wheel, Vintage Vogue both in the new Occassions Mini, and the sentiment is Vintage Labels from the sale-a-bration catalogue and is a free set with a $65 purchase!
Accessories: Little Leaves Sizzlit Die, Eyelet Border Punch, Half back pearls, Pink Satin Ribbon, Clear and Gold Embossing Powders.

I hope you like this card!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What beautiful cards! I love the pink lace one, the polar bears gave the "ahhh" factor. Could you send me the link for the video you mentioned on how to make the lace?
