How Old Would You Be?

TGIF dear reader!  When I found out about Heartfelt Creations' "Decorative Lace Border Die", I got excited.  Spellbinders has not made a die like that before.  Thanks to a good crafty friend from NY, I was able to get a hold of this fabulous tool.

I made a set of four 4.75" x 6.75" cards to show the intricacy of this die.  With white cardstock as my base, I chose four complementing colors from the Earth and Sky cardstock pack of The Paper Company.  I also used the border die from Parisian Accents, along with the other Spellbinders dies.

The cardstock underneath the sentiment is embossed with a Quickutz A2 folder.

The tricky part is adhering the cut image to the card front.  See where the rhinestones are?  Underneath them are glue dots attaching the cut image to the card front.  And I also applied some ATG tape underneath the area where the lace is adhered.  And instead of cutting the die cut shape to the edge of my card front, I folded around both sides.  This way also, it won't be a hassle putting the card inside the envelope and vice versa.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau, The Paper Company
image/sentiment:  Inkadinkado
ink:  Tsukineko, Stampin' Up
tools:  Spellbinders
embellishments:  rhinestones, lace trim
adhesive:  Scotch, Zots, mounting tape
