Seeing as it’s Sunday, it’s time for some simple card making with Stitched Lace dies. I’ve got all the measurements and steps to make a super – and quick – card for just about any occasion.
You’ve already seen how awesome this die is for both an acetate gift box and a screen panel card. And did you catch my JO-Tips video for playing with this creative addition to your toolbox? Now how about this one for some easy breezy – and elegant – paper crafting?
Isn’t it awesome?
Very Vanilla set against the new Pretty Peacock creates a stunning, and you-can-make-it simple design. Set off with just a tiny bit of Linen Thread and with a clean and simple greeting, this is an easy card that will WOW your recipient.
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Pretty Peacock cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, 4″ x 5 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 7/8″, piece 2 1/2″ x 6″ (or envelope flap)
- Very Vanilla regular cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (for Stitched Lace die), 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 2 1/4″ x 5/8″
- Linen Thread – about 12-14″
Simple Card Making with Stitched Lace Dies
1.Run 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla through Stitched Lace die with your die cutting machine. Remove and use edged die to cut along edge of stitched lace about 1″ from left hand side. See my video for tips on doing this.
2. Glue lace die piece to piece of Pretty Peacock aligning right edge.
3. Next wrap your linen thread around the panel and tie on the left hand side in a bow. TIP: If there are trailing ends, leave them to trim at the end. Glue to Very Vanilla panel then to front of folded Pretty Peacock card.
4. Stamp greeting from Parcels & Petals stamp set with Pretty Peacock ink onto small rectangle and mat with Pretty Peacock rectangle. Use dimensionals to attach to front of card over top of linen thread.
5. Add one Pretty Peacock faceted dot to left hand side of greeting (doesn’t it have a shine?).
6. Optional: Run flap of envelope through stitched lace die. TIP: You will need to sandwich the die between the envelope flat and the envelope itself with the cutting edges facing up under the flap.
7. And lastly, glue last piece of Pretty Peacock under envelope flap and trim around the edges.
I really love how easy it is to use this Stitched Lace die. It adds a touch of elegance to any design I’ve created so far and I’m sure there are tons more options for me to play!
