A Little Lace for Pals Paper Arts


This week’s challenge at Pals Paper Arts is to add a bit of lace to a Clean and Simple card.

These are the last two cards in my Pocketful of Posies purse and card set. I think these are my favorites. Everything focuses on the beautiful Pocketful of Posies Designer Series paper.

I textured the card with the new Stripes Embossing folder and Big Shot and it seems to go great with the stripes in the DSP.

The vase was created using a 1 3/4” strip of Night of Navy card stock which I also embossed with the Stripes Embossing folder and punched it out using the Extra Large Oval punch.
  • Just center the strip of paper, which is not large enough to make a full oval, in the punch and you’ll get the perfect vase!
I used bits of both the Chantilly and Victoria Crochet Trim as my elements of lace.

The sentiment is from a great set, You’re a Gem. It fits perfectly in a 1” circle punch.

The same card but with our beautiful Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding.

Now it’s your turn to try your hand at a Clean and Simple(CAS) card with a bit of lace! Make sure to stop by and see all the projects for this weeks challenge at Pals Paper Arts.

May I CASE too! Both cards are beautiful, but I especially like the addition of the vase. I love using the DSP as its own focal point!
