LLLC - Ribbons and Lace...

If it's Wednesday, it must be La-La Land Crafts day here on the blog. :)

This week, the team's inspiration challenge is "Anything Goes with Ribbon"...and it was a fun one! Two of the newest dies just released at CHA, Small Lacy Border and Large Lacy Border, do some heavy-lifting embellishment work around a piece of lace. The addition of roses, pearls, and gingham ribbon accents make this a frilly, feminine card for sure...

This is the piece of lace that runs down the left side of the card, and actually inspired the whole design:

I bordered both sides of the lace piece first with two pieces of the Small Lacy Border cut in cream, and a "shadow" piece cut in black...and used those to widen the center lace detail. The next step was to cut 5 pieces of the new Large Lacy Border, spritz them with a little water and shape them with my fingers to give a more dimensional and lacy look. Then I adhered one to the left of the lace detail, and 4 more "stacked" to run all the way across the rest of the card front...

Little gingham bows embellished with tiny cream roses sit at the top and bottom of the lacy strip. In the center, I attached a couple cream-colored scrunched seam binding bows, and on top of those, purple and cream roses. The last step was to tuck and glue loops of more of the gingham ribbon accents, and add a couple pearl clusters as a finishing touch...
