Lace Valentine

Using Real Red makes this card so much more vibrant than it appears on this photo. It is all Real Red and Whisper White. The lacey floral background is the stamp, I Love Lace (134033 wood or 134036 cling). It is then mounted on Real Red cardstock, wrapping Whisper White ribbon, layered with Real Red ribbon, then mounted to a Whisper White base card. I then adhered a paper doily to the center of the card, added dimensionals (104430) to the back of my focal point (retired) and small Pearl Basic Jewels (119247) before adding it to the card.
When stamping a large background stamp, ink up the stamp, lie your cardstock carefully on to the inked stamp, top with scrap paper (or I use paper towel) and run the Brayer (102395) back and forth over the stack. Carefully lift the paper, then the cardstock for a great image!
This is the start of my Valentine cards, so I hope you enjoyed it. Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by.

  1. I'm loving the background stamp now that I see it being used! Thanks for opening my eyes to this stamp. Your card is sweet! Perfect for Valentines Day!

  2. Thank you Paula. I am thinking it would be great punched out with the doily dies also.
