Lace and Dots

The challenge at CYHTP is an Anything Goes With A Twist of Dots and this is what I came up with. The die is from Spellbinders called Floral Hi and the EB folder is by Lifestyle crafts called Lace and dots. I started with the folder but the edges got cut in a few places so I decided to cut them all off to leave a border. I added this to the Ocean Mist card base and using a glitter Sakura pen went over all the dots. I cut several layers of the die and glued them together but only in the center not at the edges. The Hi is separate piece of the die and was cut using the same colour as card base as were the additional flowers and leaves. Attached everything and was about to add it to card front when I realized it needed a background. My original intention was to cut the sparkly background and offset it behind the rest, but I simply couldn’t get a clean cut and I tried 4 times. In frustration I decided to trace around the die and hand cut the shape. It worked but I would have preferred the original idea. That said I’m not unhappy with this card and it works for the challenge.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Judy, when I first saw that the pressure had actually cut through the CS I was upset, but then decided to make it that way.


  1. Pretty card! The trimmed bottom part of your embossed panel looks nice and was a good way to save it when the edge got cut. Love the colors you chose. Love your focal panel with the stems and flowers, stacked greeting and sparkle as well.
