Technique Junkies - Glitzy Lace

Wow, can you believe Easter is already behind us and Spring is officially here?

Today's card uses one of my very favorite techniques called Glitzy Lace from the April/May 2010 issue of Technique Junkie Newsletter. Not a subscriber to Technique Junkie yet? Go here for all the information, plus free Watercolor Crayon Tutorials!

One of my dear friends has me make all her cards, and this one is for her in-laws' 50th Wedding Anniversary in May. The lace I used in making this card was a leftover piece from a wedding dress I made for a sister-in-law in 1984. The numbers are Cuttlebug die cuts and the frame die is by Nestabilities. The Glitzy Lace piece is edged with a gold Krylon Leafing Pen, then mounted on Brushed Gold card stock and Paper Trey Stampers' Select White card stock.

I hope you are enjoying Spring!

  1. Wow! Love that card! If I should be so fortunate to celebrate #50 I'm calling you to make my card! But don't worry...doubt that will happen. DH would be 95 that year and no one in his family has lived anywhere near that long. Something nice to think about, though.

  2. Beautiful Cathy! I really like elegant cards. Missed you and Meghan at the last SAH mtg. :(
