This month’s Designer’s Choice, Luxurious Lace, is such a gorgeous staple for paper crafting. We can use the dies as edge dies, in endless combinations with each other, to make lace pieces, and so much more!
I will show you three simple projects. One is an easy way to make a gorgeous piece of lace, the other two are cards taken to the next level with this set.
Lace Embellishment Piece
Trim a piece of paper to 1 ½” by 5 ½”. Choose an edge die and a coordinating straight cut in die. These are the dies I chose
Take the straight cut in die, center it on the paper strip, secure with tape, and cut.
Line up edge die on one side of the cut in, secure with tape, and cut.
Take same edge die, line it up on opposite side, secure with tape, and cut.
We created a gorgeous lace strip that we can use as an embellishment on any project! The combinations, widths, and arrangements are endless with these dies!
Angle Cut Card
Cut a card base 4 ¼” by 11”. Score the card base at 5 ½”. Chose any combination of edge die and cut in die. These are the two I chose
Place both dies right next to each other at an angle across the card front. Secure with tape, and cut.
Cut a card insert to just shy of 4 ¼” by 5 ½”. Use any stamps and toppers you would like for the card front.
Stamp or embellish the card front.
Adhere the card insert to inside of card base.
Add any other embellishments and a sentiment!
We’ve created a beautiful card
With a sweet Dainty, angled edge!
Layered Doily Card
Cut a card base to 4 ¼” by 11”. Score and fold at 5 ½”. Cut another piece of cardstock to 4” by 5 ½”. Choose one of the larger edge dies and a complementary cut in. These are the ones I chose
Place the edge die across the bottom of the 4” by 5 ½” paper, layer on the cut in die. Secure with tape, and cut.
Layer dies in the same way and cut on opposite side of the cardstock piece.
Use any combination of papers and die cut topper. I cut a piece of striped paper to 1 5/8” by 5 ½”, pearlescent purple cardstock at 1 ¼” by 5 ½”, and then I die cut a topper with a wedding theme.
Adhere the larger strip to die cut cardstock.
Adhere the smaller paper strip over the previous one.
Adhere die cut topper.
Use dimensional adhesive to layer card topper to card base.
Just a few steps to create a gorgeous card
Made more beautiful with the combination of cut ins and simple layers.
The Luxurious Lace set is so versatile and easy to work with.
In this quick tutorial I layered together two dies at a time, but the dies can also layer in much more elaborate combinations.
