Lace And Doily Challenge

Moxie Fab World has a lace and doily challenge going on right now until June 4 so I decided to see what I could do.

I saw this dress while walking the dogs while visiting and decided to use it as my inspiration. Sorry the picture is not good but I could not take another picture at a better time. I was leaving that day after walking the dogs.

I was initially going to use vellum but after the vellum kept tearing even after putting a new blade in I gave up. Besides that the vellum is actually a gray color.  It looked dingy and was not the effect I was after. This is what I came up with.

 I don't know if taking pictures of white on white is tricky or if I just need better light. Hopefully you can see the details better with the closeups. Although it doesn't show well in the picture the card base is textured.

For the scallop piece I took a flourish file from Studio and mirrored and welded it. It was easy to draw the flower in Studio. I glued tulle behind the panel to make it look like lace. The scallop at the bottom was easy to make by using the letter O and then welding. Originally when I designed the rectangle panel I was going to do something else. Instead of adding a cut out embellishment on each side of the flower I decided to add a gem instead. The panel is pop dotted on the card base.

The sentiment was printed on a single flourish that I rotated. It took a little bit to manipulate the text. My touch-pad and I do not get along.

I thought later that I should have edged the flourish with silver to make it pop a little bit more. Designing cards is a learning experience for me. Doing a white on white is definitely something new for me.

To enter into the fun or to see some totally fabulous entries go to .

My tip of the day is to look at your stash and see how you can use them in new ways. The tulle and ribbon does not need to be just for bows. Also if you have a cutting machine see how you can use the negatives in your creations.

I'm off to making a more colorful card as well as a Father's day card for my son. Wishing you Frugal crafting until we meet again.
