Roses and Lace on Your Special Day

Hi, Friends.......

I am back with a pretty card that I have been wanting to make for some time. I've had most of these elements together in a bag for months, but couldn't settle on a design for the card. Does that ever happen to you??? I loved the coral lace with the rose print and die cut, but it just wasn't coming together.

I originally had planned on just the open outline of the rose and a simple die-cut sentiment. I decided to layer the rose and ended up jettisoning the die-cut sentiment and stamping a new one. The die-cut patterned paper background didn't look right as one panel, so I threw caution to the wind and cut it into strips. Finally it was looking more like what I wanted. A few dew drops and black round drops topped it all off.

I started out intending this to be a birthday card, but now I think I will save it for a wedding card.  What do you think???

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (white backround panel)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (rose patterned paper panel that I cut into strips)
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Studio Katia - Clear Round Drops Mix
Adhesive black round drops from stash
Scraps from stash
Thrift store lace from stash

Hope you like my card! Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Your visits and comments mean the world to me!!

  3. Adorable and sweet card, that lace really deserved to be shown and your card does it perfectly! Love the rose with the inlay!

  4. Very pretty and would be perfect for a wedding with the lace.

  5. Oooh, that coral lace is gorgeous and I love the contrast between the coral and black and white patterned paper. Cutting the pp into strips worked perfectly and now it looks kind of like a rose trellis or fence. Love how you backed part of the lace with white cardstock so we can see all that lovely detail. This would be a perfect wedding card indeed, or a bridal shower etc.

  6. Very pretty!! I love that coral lace; it is gorgeous! And it really pops against the black and white of the rest of the card. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

  7. The coral lace is beautiful and I can see why you wanted to make this stunning card with it. Hugs Mrs A.

  9. This is gorgeous!! And yes, that has happened to me before, you’re not alone there!! 😁 That coral lace is simply divine. It pairs beautifully with that diecut rose. Love the black mat around the sentiment too.
