Elements of Style Lace Card

This is one of those cards that looks harder than what it is – my favorite kind!  It uses Elements of Style and First Edition DSP.  (The picture was taken at a weird angle – sorry!)

I stamped the flower image in Stazon of the First Edition DSP and colored it with Stampin Write Markers.  Then I sponged the edges and matted it on Early Espresso.  The Victorian lace was gathered (long stitch on my sewing machine) and attached to the side.

The card base (Marina Mist) was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  To do the sentiment I used a piece of DSP that was the same pattern as the card front, stamped it and matched it up. 

Stamp Set – Elements of Style
card stock – Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, First Edition DSP
Ink – Jet Black Stazon, Crumb Cake
Stampin Write Markers – Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Always Artichoke
Etc – Antique brad, Victorian Lace, Square Lattice embossing folder, Oval punch

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
