Christmas Lace

Over at Die Cut Dreams the challenge this week is Christmas Lace.  Strangely enough one of our projects at this week's craft club was lace glittering so I decided to use this method as well as some ordinary lace on my card.

I started off by taking a piece of card and, using red liner tape (as it's so strong), covered the width on the card that co-ordinates with the width of lace you will be using.  When you have your tape in place put down your lace over it and make sure it is very smooth.  You can use a little roller which is normally used for seams on wallpaper when you're decorating...........  Pour over your first choice of glitter (mine was red) and rub into the glue.  When all is covered remove the actual lace and you are left with the "negative" pattern.  Using another colour of glitter (in this case gold) pour it over the strip and it will adhere to the glue.  When I had finished I cut it to size for my square card blank.  I added gold mirri and red card and put a strip of lace over the join.  I have used a Lili of the Valley image and made a red frame using nesties.  I had a small piece of glittered lace left so used my EK Success photo corner punch to give me corners for the frame.  The sentiment has been stamped and embossed with red glitter e/p and matted.  Some red roses, Stickles and gems finished the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
