More Tattered Lace



It's Saturday morning which means a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Tracy is challenging us to 'Anything but a Birthday'.

I promised earlier in the week that I would show some more of the Tattered Lace cards using the new Royal Lace collection which launched yesterday on Create and Craft TV to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Tattered Lace......................and goodness me, a whole week's worth sold out in record time. I used the large 190 square Lace Medallion embossing folder as the base of my card and after embossing dusted lightly with distress ink which really makes the pretty pattern pop. I cut six of the Royal Lace borders and  stuck to white card and placed across the embossed panel, then added a couple of black feathers, an organza bow, a TL Butterfly, some pearls and TL sentiment.



I thought I would also share this card with you and shock horror as it's another baby card, three in a month is a record for me as I usually avoid them like the plague, but I have to confess that since I went onto the Tattered Lace DT I have seen baby cards in a totally different light. 

The sweet Little Monsters characters are adorable and although they have a cute element to them there is that touch of sophistication that Stephanie always manages to bring to her designs, I mean just look at those pretty ears ! Our youngest granddaughter absolutely adores elephants and has done since a toddler and has already put in her order for her Birthday card this year. I won't bore you with all the details of how I made my card as I wrote up the details earlier in the week here.

Happy weekend all.

The TL embossing folder is so pretty especially when you dusted it with some distress ink - it really pops up! The addition of the butterflies, and feather with the black and pink theme reminded me so much of the Venetian carnival!
As for the baby card, have not seen an elephant with such intricate cutting on it and you've beautifully brought out all the details, Brenda!

Kathleen said...

Gorgeous colours on the first card and a little 50's style to me, too young to know really.
Love the elephant dies and the fancy bunting, my Niece is due a baby on the 10th of March and these dies would make a fab Baby card BUT apparently it is going to be a really big Baby so I wouldn't dare use the elephant incase she took it the wrong way, lol.

Such beautiful cards Brenda.. Loving your choice of colors on each! I think my favorite of these cards is the first one, because I absolutely love the lace medallion embossing and the gorgeous butterfly.
Of course the elephant is just darling too, love his ears!!

MaryH said...

AWE-SOME! Love these TL dies, and your hot colors really showed off the lace borders in such a stunning way. Brilliant to combine the colors with the design reversed as you have done it. The feathers & butterfly looked amazing against that fabulous lace embossing too. This one is definitely a show stopper. Can easily see why the new dies were sold out quickly. #2 is as darling as can be, with the sweet little peachy elephant and his lacey ears. Love that tiny eyelet banner border and the train of elephants trimming the bottom. Two super cards. TFS &Hugs
