The Little Things


I have loads of lace in my stash, and came across this pretty lace.  I wanted to make a card that I could send to the oncology ward, and decided to use the lace.

The pattern is from Gina K Designs Pretty Patterns stamp set. (The greeting is from Gina K Designs “One in a Million” stamp set.) I think the color is a Stampin’ Up! one. But don’t quote me on that – if I don’t write it down, I can’t always remember!

After stamping the pattern on the bottom half of the topper, I laid the lace across it, but didn’t like the result.  So I threaded some ribbon through it.  It doesn’t match perfectly, but it still looks great, I believe.

Last but not least, before adding the topper to the cardbase, I rounded the top corners of the topper. After gluing it down, I added some pearls to balance it.

This card was entered in the Inspired by Stamping Ribbon Challenge.

  1. Beautiful card Cheryl! I am so glad that you joined us this week! Love the pink with the crochet trim! So pretty! Hugs, Joanna

  2. I love this little card Cheryl. I have that the Pretty Patterns stamp set and never think to use it. Thanks for the inspiration my dear!

  3. Cheryl, that’s a very beautiful card! I love the lace; it reminds me of the old hand-tatted cotton lace my Mom had on some of her coffee table cloths. Brings back memories….

  4. Hey, that’s not “pretty” lace, it is gorgeous lace! Get that right! LOL I can’t believe how lovely this is, and all you did was stamp the sentiment, add that gorgeous lace, ribbon, and the border stamping below (which resembles sort of a layered lacy effect, does’t it?) Beautiful card. I LOVE the ribbon through the lace, Cheryl, it MAKES the card! Thanks for the inspiration. I confess, I have some lace in my stash that has never seen the light of day. Shameful, right? Maybe I ought to get it out, and use it? Ya think? LOL

  5. I was certainly an easy card, Anna. But the results are pretty good!

    Definitely go through your stash and find something you haven’t used for a while. It’s amazing the inspiration you’ll get!
