Sweet Stamps Challenge 31 - Lace

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to use Lace, it can be actual lace, a rubber stamp or a lacy border.  Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.
 


For my card I began with this beautiful Sweet Stamps Lace Border.  I stamped it with white dye ink onto 36# vellum then heat embossed it with Queens Gold embossing powder.  I repeated the procedure with my Sweet Stamps Poinsettia Large.  I added color to the back of the vellum for the poinsettia using Memento markers.  I attached the vellum to a piece of white card stock with gold brads then attached that to the red card stock base.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  A very quick but elegant card. 

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Gorgeous Sandy and I also agree haven't used my embossing powder in a long while. But Christmas is a brilliant time to try out an old technique. Your card is wonderful as always!!
