Lovely Lace Challenge

 
Wanted to use one of the lace DooHickey Dies to make a raised frame, so used it on this card.  This is for the Lacey Lace theme at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!

From the lovely Diana's Magnolia-licious Store:
MINI 361 DELIGHTFUL TILDA
DH 82 VINTAGE BOX LACING COFFEE BORDER DIE
DH 75 PEONIES DIES
DH 22 VINTAGE FLOWERS AND LEAVES - flower
DH 68 SPRAWLING FERNS
DH 49 SO WRAPPED TILDA LACE FOLDED TAG 


I love the DH 8 Doily Flowers, but also love these new Peonies Dies are back in stock, so I would suggest, get them while they are in!

Can't wait to use the Sprawling Ferns for Christmas Greenery!!!  They will be perfect for swags or wreaths!

To make the frame, overlap the horizontal and vertical border pieces and cut at a diagonal through both pieces in the corner to make a mitered corner.  The may not match perfectly, sometimes they will though.   If they don't match, that's when you can add a strip of pearls or other decoration. 
There are two other border dies like the coffee that work nicely for this frame too!
DH 81 VINTAGE BOX LACING CHOCOLATE
DH 83 VINTAGE BOX LACING SUGAR
The  SO WRAPPED TILDA LACE FOLDED TAG is actually a double folded over tag, but I made use out of just half of it and can use the other half for a tag on the inside of the card.  Tilda is colored with Promarkers and accented with white gel pen and pearls.


You will find some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team members and how you can join in on a Lacey Lace project HERE!

Thanks for stopping by and your wonderful comments!  Stay tuned for some more fun die projects coming soon!!!!   Enjoy every day!!!
